    I have been working at Avira full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits... Competitive wage, top health care, flexible hours, mac book, thunderbolt display, iPhone subsidize gym membership and nice long holidays.

    Global travel to offices in Germany, Europe and California.

    You really can make an impact here, Avira has many employees but unlike other big companies your voice will be heard and you will get to work on things that really improve the company.

    There is still so much to be done! The work is exciting and we are just in the beginning of turning what is an old company into a slick new modern approach to security.

    Cons

    Convincing others to take the right approach can sometime be very difficult. On the plus side the art of persuasion is a new skill you will pick if you don't have it already.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the boundaries but never loose focus of the core product that makes Avira great!

    Javascript Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avira (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. HR scheduled the Skype call and easily rescheduled it on my request.
    First interview was unexpectedly with developer lead and PM in addition to HR.
    Pleasant talking to HR and lead.
    PM was absolutely not interested in process and stuck into his phone.
