Pros

You get what you give..play nice and you can learn a lot from people who have been around.
In hotels you get 3 squares a day at no charge which saves you a bundle.
they give you a uniform allowance which is pretty fair
the health benefits are pretty decent considering some I have seen. dental is weak.
most of the mid level guys and girls are OK to work with..you definitely have a few over zealous goobers but that can happen anywhere.

Cons

Long hours ..but thats the nature of the beast.
transitioning to management hurts you in the pocket if you are not careful..same hours 60-70 p/week but you are now salary and that can hurt without OT
the hotels generally treat you like a doormat unless you get lucky and work with a cool hotel staff thats fair and nice and treats you like part of the team..but a lot of that comes from your director..if he is a tool then the hotels feelings trickle down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop spending so much time hiring managers and get your techs to a happier place and the clients will see better service all around which means repeat business. Some hotels have 4 managers to every 1 tech???? kind of crazy.

    The job is frustrating and you will always be pushed for more with no appreciation in return.

    Pros

    It beats not having a job.
    Medical Benefits are good.
    Some of the directors are great to work with!
    A good basic job for beginner audio visual technicians.

    Cons

    PSAV does not appreciate their staff or their management teams. All employees are no more than pawns, hired to further the company dollar. The company is extremely top driven and the upward management is further removed from reality than I've ever seen. Money is not put into new gear and the company is 10 years behind current technology. PSAV knows everything and will not listen to any ideas outside of their own. Working hard is a way to be trusted with more tasks for the same pay. Those who simply putt along, will survive and if lucky, even get a raise. The general capabilities of PSAV's average staff does not exceed small (low end) hotel AV.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are hurting your managers, staff, and eventually your clients the way you manage your company. If you cannot give your staff the things they need and the respect they deserve, you will never compete with the other AV companies. PSAV considers themselves a "World Leader" in audio visual but is known around town as the bottom of the barrel. Get a clue and get your act together or your decline will only continue.

    Pros

    Overall pay is fine and the medical benefits are good.

    Cons

    Long hours. Uninvolved management. Lack of communication. The sales team doesn't know what we sell or how to spec events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training for all positions. Opportunities for advancement. Mentoring would be a good idea as well. Streamlining all purchasing and being proactive in the industry.
