    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at AVerMedia

    Pros

    Relaxed corporate culture Friendly and fun coworkers Management facilitates individual creativity Ongoing challenges keep the job exciting Opportunity to let your voice be heard Opportunity for training and skill advancement

    Cons

    Recent organizational changes have caused some confusion Two seperate office locations - creates inter office mailing difficulties No internal food accomodations

    Advice to Management

    I think management overall does a great job of leading our group and encouraging creativity and productivity, but it would be nice to see the managers leading by example when it comes to using administrative systems on a daily basis.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AVerMedia full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The US company president is a fair and affable guy, with keen business acumen.

    Cons

    Being headquartered in Taiwan the local operations will forever be reliant on off shore agendas and support.

    Advice to Management

    More autonomy for the US based company would help AverMedia to prosper in the US market better.

    I worked at AVerMedia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has a decent amount of funds stored to survive, but went negative for many years in a row (talking at least 6 or 7+? years). They're confused on how they want to do 'gaming', and while they were relatively early to doing streaming products -- they're still a little out of touch on what's needed.

    Cons

    Culture is too traditional Taiwanese. A lot of finger pointing/blame. Doing OEM products without understanding others may be selling the same thing for near half their MSRP.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand gaming products more if you want to do gaming. Don't go with a half-baked approach via a supposed "gaming ID" or toy-look, performance needs to be there too.

    I worked at AVerMedia full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Easy work life, feel of accomplishment (because you have to do more than what was on your job description to cover for people who left / got fired).

    Cons

    Future is bleak. CEO is still reminiscing the success the company had, and trying to return to glory, but making poor decisions in business and HR. A lot of competition among high and mid management, morale is really low.

    Advice to Management

    Relying too much on replacing top management, laying blame on the former and putting new hope on the later, it's not a healthy system. Take more care of your employees, listen in, look long-term.
