    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!

    Webcams: The modern rear-view mirror - Avira Blog

    This year the new TV series, "Scream," was released. Not bad, but in my humble opinion, it has the same problem that a lot of movies have: it has a powerful beginning but deflates and loses strength gradually until the end. The question is, why am I talking about TV in a malware- and AV-related blog?
