    I have been working at Avention OneSource Solutions (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at Avention for nearly 3 years, and I firmly believe i'll never find another company like Avention in a life time.

    #1 the biggest pro of this company is its employees. On every level, they are the best and brightest group of individuals that I've ever had privileged to call my colleagues.

    #2 In all of my roles at Avention, I've always found there is a clearly defined career path, as well as incredible opportunity for growth within the organization.

    #3 The front end products are both innovative and intuitive.

    #4 Tremendous work/life balance with open vacation policy.

    #5 Collaborative Environment.

    Overall 10 out of 10

    Cons

    The only con is i have is to the industry and not the company. This is a competitive space!

    Advice to Management

    One of the most important qualities in any Management role is to lead by example, and that is exactly what the management Avention does. The CEO Steve Pogorzelski and management teams are the first ones in the office and the last to leave every day. Not only that, but i've never worked at a company where the CEO knows every single employee that works for him and makes a point to be open and transparent about the business performance month after month. Truly great leadership! Wouldn't chance a thing

    Pros

    Avention has been on a journey to for growth. Over the last two years the products, including the data have improved significantly

    The culture is excellent and is driven by the values that were set by the CEO. Every month, there is a town hall that is focus on telling employees exactly where the company is and what the key the future deliverables are

    Cons

    It is a tough, changing market, so the tactics that worked in the past to drive growth might not be the rights one for success today

    Advice to Management

    Keep delivering on the key strategic inititaves

    Pros

    Some great people working at Avention, particularly some very strong sales people that are the best asset of the company. Also in a domain that has potential for growth.

    Cons

    Senior management has no respect for the people, churning and burning the people and not replacing them, all because the CEO and his team have no clue about the marketplace. Quotas are completely unrealistic, the group I worked in had limited success at an individual level, but nobody in the other division, Enterprise Sales, hit their their targets. The result is that therefore you are working for your salary plus a very low payout of commissions.
    Data quality is not very good, no use of corporate hierarchy and very limited scope of services. Takes forever to roll anything out, any non standard work is handled by a very small group of people and quality is an issue.
    Basically a lot of marketing spin about the data, some style, no substance. At the end of the day, it is a one trick pony for the most part, a seat based service that has limited value in the market if customers truly understood what they were buying.

    Advice to Management

    Give up on the pipe dream that the business plan calls for and come clean with the board on the fact that the CEO's plan had fatal flaws from the start. Growth rates that the teams are being asked to deliver are completely unrealistic and way out of scope of typical industry rates.

    Pros

    Colleagues., Sr. Leadership, Culture, We have a CEO who respects his employees and believes in our products and that people are our biggest asset.

    Cons

    Location.....Concord, MA can be a long commute for many.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open and transparent lines of communication. It's always been a strength of our company and it continues today. Nice to see the recent flurry of internal promotions. Continue to let people manage their business and focus only on the ones who need to be micro managed. I love our company and what it has become over the years. Each person, past and present has made our company what it is today.
