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

    Pros

    The benefits and perks are great, the "family" mentality is awesome and the career opportunity is one of a lifetime. Very rarely are you expected to work beyond your hours and having fun is most definitely a priority. I've yet to find any disgruntled employees, and most everyone appears to be happy here.

    Cons

    There seems to be many people doing a lot of nothing to help move the company forward. Instead of charging into fires to put them out, most wait until their told to do something. Creativity and innovation isn't really encouraged or highly approved of. Movement in the company is difficult unless you play company politics.

    Advice to Management

    Employ those who want to work hard and benefit the company. Don't keep people just to fill seats. Encourage and reward innovation, and ideas.

    I worked at AMX full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most folks at AMX treat you like family. Many people have been there for a very long time. Low turnover aside from occasional and financially necessary layoffs, and when those have occurred staff have agonized over how to decide who had to be let go, particularly iengineering. If you have a good idea and it makes sense this is a place where most of the time they will let you run with it. Little in the way of absurd beauracracy I had at previous jobs.

    Cons

    Haven't been much for bonuses for a while, no profit sharing plans, however senior management isn't lining thier pockets at the employees expense either. Management sometimes pours R&D into acquired product lines it should have never picked up in the first place as they were inherently flawed to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your staffs input. People who work here for the most part really do think about the well being of the company first and if they tell you something may not be a great idea, there's probably something to it.

    Pros

    great people to work with

    Cons

    upper management , there is to much of it, its almost one manager for every 3 employee's, making it very hard to get the job done

    Advice to Management

    pull the uneeded bean counters, this will help in getting product out of the door ontime. Be an industry leader not a follower.

    Pros

    The environment and people are very friendly. Everything is casual and it is fairly easy to snag upper management for a few words if you need to. Great work life balance as deadlines seem to always be fudgable. Benefits are good and atmosphere makes you feel like family. Reduced priced catered lunch. Places to take a break if you need to stop thinking for a minute (volleyball court, basketball court, ping pong and fussball tables). You get to see a lot of new technology work with most of the major hardware manufacturers, which gives some variation in task and challenges. Even the individuals who had to be laid off (after a bad quarter) were assisted by HR for months afterwards to help them get new jobs with other companies.

    Cons

    Its a place to feel like family.. in saying that you are appreciated but not paid for. Compensation is on the lower end but reasonable as it seems to be pretty low stress. Being a mid sized company a bad quarter for sales could mean your job though. Also project management seems to be done pseudo by committee causing feature creep and delays to be the norm. Also it seems to be a company mantra that 80% quality is good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Strive for true quality in what is produced on the Software side to keep up with the hardware quality. Keep on trucking with sales into the educational and foreign markets.
