    Because of the recent merger it's kind of a wait and see situation

    Pros

    Largest company in our field. Ability (in theory) to move and find work in most major cities in U.S. Opportunity for scale of work which may be hard to find in smaller AV companies. Opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Overtime & weekends, even in management positions. Compennsation is questionable for the work/life balance. Recent merger between Swank and PSAV has left a lot of things uncertain - mostly the sort of environment it will be going forward and decisions about pay, scheduling. I worked with Swank before and our CEO Greg Diekemper was appointed the CEO of merged company. Three months later he's the "advisor" to the board of directors? That's a little troubling. The merged company and both Swank and PSAV previously were owned by venture capital firms. I think the need to profit off this investment will cause some decisions to be made contrary to employee's best interests.

    Pros

    Pay is consistent with the cost of living for the area. Great co-workers and opportunity to learn from them. Hotel staff is great and there are plenty of networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism. If you stand up for yourself and ask too many questions, you end up at the bottom of that favorite list. Once you're at the bottom it doesn't matter how well you do, or how well you work, or how much your coworkers and hotel staff like you, you won't get recognition for it and will get called out on all the little things that you do wrong. Horrible communication between sales, management, the hotel staff, and techs. Taking things to your RVP or HR makes no difference in how you are treated. Good luck being treated equally and paid equally if you're a female.

    Advice to Management

    Put more focus on making your techs happy. You can have your big fancy property, but if you can't keep the good, hardworking techs, then you have nothing.
