    I have been working at AMX full-time

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Great people.

    Cons

    Not enough training. No Management direction.

    Advice to Management

    For the top management: Medium level managers are not listening and connecting with employees. It is important to recognize your top performing employees rather than your favorites.

    I have been working at AMX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people. Relaxed atmosphere. Good pay. Good benefits. Good severance packages. Cheap lunches

    Cons

    Laid long-term employees without any regards to experience or effect on products and clients.

    Advice to Management

    Management does not seem to understand product, services, clients, or market. Need to solicit input and feedback from experienced employees, as well as clients.

    I worked at AMX full-time

    Pros

    If you want overtime you got it! Always had supplies needed.

    Cons

    hours are never the same. When they lost a project manager at the head quarters they just stopped sending us to work and forgot all about us for 6 months before we were "fired"

    Advice to Management

    More communication with your project managers.

    I have been working at AMX full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a friendly environment. Easy to create a long term career. $3 lunches are provided. Get exposed to different technologies.

    Cons

    Product owners do not know what they are doing. They have no clue what the customer requirements are and ask engineers what they should do. No idea what is going on half the time after the Harman takeover, it is as though they do not know what to do with is. The company is going down hill and I wont be surprised if sold or downsized in coming weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all high level managers (VP/Directors) and talk to the employees. When an acquisition takes place there is always going to be some push back. But nearly 3 years surely it is no brainer where the problems ara.

    Pros

    Great products. Great people. That is what the company was all about. A dedicated group of people who challenged themselves and those around to achieve greatness in everything they touched.

    Cons

    Like all corporations, decisions are made that change the direction of the ship and affect employees in good and bad ways.

    Advice to Management

    Stay committed to the open communication and making sure employees are happy. I think the customers know they are getting top notch product with top notch service and support.

    Pros

    To harman what's a pro?

    Cons

    since the acquisition the company has went down the toilet. I feel like an overworked plummer, sick of the crap. No one knows what anyone does, there is no real growth unless you carry kneepads in your suitcase. Your title changes every 15 minutes but your pay doesn't. Your workload also increases, but again your pay doesn't. You are on pens and needles because they may ship your position to mexico, they literally had IT make all these changes to one company just to shut them down a month later and shift all those responsibilities to a low paid group. The IT support is done by a third party so nothing gets done to enable you to do your job. The poor 2 guys that are onsite are overworked so they try as hard as possible but they can only do so much. The great people are all leaving or have already left. I would rather clean used porta potties than to continue to work here.

    Advice to Management

    the color of one's does equal quality of work. Stop buying companies and ruining them, give good employees a fair chance instead of people who just tell you you're wearing a nice tie today.
