    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 worked at AMX full-time

    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.

    I worked at AMX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed my career at AMX. Great people and good work. I had an amazing boss and always had plenty to do. I would have stayed longer but wanted to get out of Dallas (had lived there my whole life).

    Cons

    Sometimes there was a communications gap between the development teams and product engineering.

    Pros

    The best thing about working here is that it's a fun work environment and open communication with management is encouraged.

    Cons

    There's not many that I can think of at the moment. We could always have higher salaries I guess.

    Advice to Management

    I would say try to be as in tune with the industry as possible in order to continue to develop award winning products.

    Pros

    AMX is a wonderful place to work. Pay is good, benefits are great, and the environment is second to none. Time off is more than ample and managers are willing to work with the employees in special cases. All in all an ideal place to be employed. An excellent place if you want a stable, stress free job over the long term.

    Cons

    Smaller company, entrenched hierarchy of seniority. Limited opportunity for significant advancement. Raises aren't that great. There is no type of bonus or incentive structure.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so sales oriented and focused on a small number of players. Provide real paths for advancement and some form of structure where one can know how he will progress through the ranks.
