    Pros

    Products are reliable as long as they are used within the narrow range of supported workflows. Pay is good, but quality of life is next to nothing.

    Cons

    If Avid was a child, it would hold its breath to get its way. Infighting and stubborn treatment of customers and employees is a daily frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell it or buy it out. Merge it with a storage manufacturer that's looking to diversify.

    I worked at Avid Technology full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fun products to work on. Decent work/life balance. Employees that are trying to make the best of it. Casual atmosphere.

    Cons

    Too much politics. Repeated layoffs have eliminated most of the talented creative/artistic force within the company, leaving too much mediocrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Minimize the politics, hire creative/artistic talent, rebuild the exciting culture that once existed, and establish more of a meritocracy.
