Pros

Die Firma hat ein tolles Produkt - Media Archive, ein Unternehmens-MAM-System für den Medien- und Unterhaltungsbereich. Die Angestellten hier arbeiten mit Hingabe, Talent und Teamgeist. Das Unternehmen hatte schwierige Zeiten in der Vergangenheit, aber die Leute blieben an Bord, und jeder tat sein Bestes. Mit dem neuen Management, das Ende 2006 ins Unternehmen kam, hat das Unternehmen hervorragende Fortschritte erzielt und sich als Marktführer bei den MAMs etabliert, was für Avid Technology ein Anreiz war, die Firma Anfang 2010 aufzukaufen.

The company has a great product - Media Archive, an enterprise MAM for the media and entertainment space. The people working there are dedicated, talented, and spirited. The company has gone through some hard times in the past, but the people stayed on board, and everybody helped to make things better. With the new management coming on board in late 2006 the company made excellent progress and established itself as a market leader in MAM, which was an incentive for Avid Technology to acquire them in early 2010

Cons

Der Markt für das Produkt von Blue Order ist sehr schwer vorhersehbar.

The market for Blue Order's product is very difficult to predict.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Guter Arbeitsplatz, nette Leute in der Entwicklungsabteilung. Sie kümmern sich um ihre Kollegen.

    Good workplace, nice people in the Development division. They care about their colleagues.

    Cons

    Feste Struktur, Kluft zwischen Design-Team (aka Architektur) und anderen. Sehr wenige Kollegen sind begeistert, was sie tun, für die meisten ist dies nur ein Job. Schwer, eine Änderung zu implementieren, obwohl sich alle einig sind, dass dies eine sehr gute Idee wäre.

    Fixed structure, gap between design team (aka architecture) and devs. Very few colleagues are passionate about what they are doing, for most this is just a job. Hard to implement a change, even though all agree would be a very good idea.

    I worked at Avid Technology as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most internships programs DO NOT compensate their interns, AVID does. This was extremely helpful and allowed me to afford gas, food, and essentials. Also, the "large" size of the program (around 30 students) allows for ideas to be shared and contacts to be made. In addition, the competitiveness of the program's interview process is helpful for the real world and real interviews. Another grat aspect fo the program was the managers flexsbility with intern's hours, days off, and any specific/unique requests; they realize that were not just there for the money and that were there to help and learn. Lastly, The employee's with whom I worked with were all extremely nice and patient while teaching me new skills; random employees would reach out to me to help them with projects and would teach me how to complete them effectively and efficiently. Oh, P.S.- There were some awesome field-trips!

    Cons

    None that I can think of, maybe just the commute from Salem, MA to Burlington, MA (30 min drive time was on avg. a 1-hour commute during rush hours) :-P

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Divide the field-trips up into smaller groups of interns, too many folks at one site was over-whelming!
