    I have been working at PSAV full-time (More than 3 years)


    Best bosses make life fun and easy, make you excited to show up for work- if not excited then at least not dread it. The best way to grow in this company is to hop around, make a name for yourself, and if you can get two directors to love you enough to fight over you- that's how you'll actually start to get paid your worth.


    A lot of people slack off and don't realize that everyone around you can see it, and the field shifts so often, your once coworkers can easily become your superiors. In short, the company has taken turtle steps, if anything, to care about its employees. If they did, they'd give a decent 401k match- not dependent on the company doing well, and only up to 1% (if you contribute 4%). They would also not tie bonus incentives to other departments that have nothing to do with your responsibilities. Working for PSAV is almost like working for a dream- careful if you decide to stay waiting for it to get better- you might never wake up from the nightmare. They demand so much from you (if you actually have work ethics and take pride in your work), or you'll settle into the sludge most employees fall into- a day to day monotony of indifference. It's easier and less stressful surviving that way, sometimes I just can't blame them.

    Advice to Management

    Read cons list. Zero incentive for the people who make the company run in front of clients. Take care of your directors and managers (only if they really are doing well)- they greatly influence the attitude of everyone below them, and if techs see no incentive (monetary) to take on more responsibility, why would they? Also- the points rewards website is a scam. By the time I leave this company I may have saved enough points for a dinner out to Olive Garden. But only covering my meal.
