I have been working at PSAV full-time

Pros

Ambition and work ethic are rewarded. Thousands of locations mean a ton of opportunity, depending on what you want to do. Fiscally responsible with a good profit margin means stability.

Cons

Some planning is a bit seat-of-the-pants. I don't know if this is at the executive level, or just because of poor inter-department planning. Nothing huge, but it creates some inefficiencies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better planning at the corporate level.

    I have been working at PSAV full-time

    Pros

    Use this job as a stepping stone to something better. There is valuable experience to be gained that you can take elsewhere. Directors are very helpful, but upper management only cares about the bottom line.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for what can be accomplished with limited help, no set schedule or hours, working nights and weekends, spending your "day off" on call. You will work 60 hours one week, then 20-30 the next, with no notice ahead of time. incompetent sales staff results in technicians having to negotiate prices on the spot. This job is not an audiovisual gig. It is 90% hotel and customer service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business model is not sustainable. Corporate is trying to make the company as profitable as possible by cutting hourly labor, and working salary guys until they inevitably burn out. Hire enough help and actually let them work their hours, so that employees can have a somewhat reasonable work-life balance. Put an actual PSAV employee in each hotel sales office, don't leave it up to someone in catering to know what equipment we need.
