    I have been working at Aavid full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good career opportunities and advancement, diversity in opportunities and growth, intelligent workers and dedicated to their success and that of their co-workers.

    Cons

    Lack of financial growth opportunities unless title change, upper management is a little shady and slippery. Computer networking kinda sucks using "Thin Client".

    Advice to Management

    Listen a little more to your employees.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Aavid full-time

    Pros

    1) Heavily investing in Marketing
    2) Indescrimate acquisition in fear of growth
    3) Rules customers
    4) You can make your money double during joining and then for sure no increment for next future in this bogus..

    Cons

    1) CEO decides if an employee will stay in a hotel for business of in the factory dormitory
    2) single penny decision has to be from CEO
    3) Huge number of VP's running around CEO for penny approval
    4) HR strategy- NIL.. Butter the CEO and you will get it

    Advice to Management

    Marketing strategy for a technology company comes from new innovations and not by holding employees salaries and lay offs. Think big to get big, be fair to employees.
