    Pros

    Peerless-AV isn't a bad company. For being an AV company though, the IT/MIS department is behind the times. Which isn't a huge deal as most of the management is open minded, allowing for idea generation and game changing initiatives. Good benefits too. There are a lot of good people working for this company, good people that are fun, helpful, and friendly. Management is willing to speak with you, interact with you, don't be put-off by the thought of executives. They are polite, friendly, helpful, and willing to listen/interact.

    Cons

    The marketing strategy has blurred vision, hiring external companies and relying on outside partners to carry the marketing effort. Unfortunately, those external agencies have successfully blown smoke into the management staff, instilled false confidence, and set themselves up for failure. The internal marketing management NEEDS help. More concerned about having fun and posting hash tags and selfies, rather than growing the business. When an entire department forms a clique with employees, issues are brewing... A lot of steps in the correct direction have been made, but still more is needed. More market research is needed, start with the basics - SWOT analysis and competitive analysis would do wonders.

    The building is dungeonous (and feels kind of dated) with no lobby, the cubes are similar to prison (or at least what is portrayed in the movies). Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of growth opportunity within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure the right people are in the right places. Keep being the great leaders that you each have been and are. Look around for more hidden talent, don't let the biggest voice do the decision making. Be skeptical, don't let the outside companies sway opinions and instill false confidence. Let the right people in the right positions make the right decisions, don't make uninformed decisions based on hearsay.
