    I worked at AVI-SPL full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    AViSPl is large and, because it is poorly organized, the service technicians are under utilized. The work load is very light.

    Cons

    The most dishonest management I’ve ever experienced. Also, a company culture where failure and the potential lessons learned are swept under the rug.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity and honesty.

    Pros

    AVISPL has a large team of resources that can help in all aspects of the design and quoting process. This is extremely beneficial in providing fast and accurate quotes, which makes us sales folks look good. We also have a top notch Operations Team which alleviates any concerns of projects going smoothly and keeping my customers happy.

    Cons

    We are often overwhelmed with quote requests due to the size of our organization. Is having too much work really a problem?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the sales team with resources for fast and accurate proposals. Make sure the Ops Team grows at the same pace as sales.
