    I worked at Avid Technology

    Pros

    The people who are on the ground floor, getting real work done developing products are the most talented and passionate people out there. These people are also the users of the products and are deeply connected with the rest of the user base. Only the people and the innovative products they created made the job worth it.

    Cons

    Due to annual layoffs and management demanding more productivity and longer hours from a continually decreasing work force, there is NO trust in the competence of upper management. There is NO trust in job security. There is NO morale left. There is NO goodwill left for upper management from the people who actually develop the products. Products are selling, the work force is being slashed and the company still can't...

    Advice to Management

    Read these reviews! This is what your past and present employees think of you. A child could easily put together the general theme here. Cut from the top, hire at the bottom, get people who actually know the industry to run the company or Avid will die. Long live Digidesign!

    I worked at Avid Technology full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Super cool technology, most employees (in every department) were musicians and creative types.

    Cons

    Leadership and many co-workers were simply unethical. Huge salary disparities. Employees and directors cheating on their spouses with company employees and in company parties was common. HR's job was always simply to show employees how corporate was right and you were wrong.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Avid Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Was once a wonderful place to work, great products, great customers, great culture, great perks and compensation. We were so proud to work there. Lots of great teamwork happened there in the past and the lower management was wonderful. The products changed the industry.

    Cons

    Now--just a shell of it's former self. Current executive team has RUINED this company. First they got crazy with buying up other companies, now they sell them off. They outsourced hundreds of jobs to Asia and the Ukraine and destroyed the lives of long term employees who were experienced and had pride in their company. They stripped the pride and culture away. Avid went from a company its' employees were proud to work...

    Advice to Management

    Take your millions and outsource yourselves far, far away. Take your GREED out of this country. Leave this company back to the real people who built it so it can prosper again.

    I have been working at Avid Technology

    Pros

    The people, what are left of them at least. The technology, the gear discounts. The passion for the industry and love of product is...err...was pervasive.

    Cons

    Clueless executive staff are running the company into the ground. They could care less about the products, customers, or the employees. Their only goal is to keep cutting and offshoring until they can show a profit. Then problem is we are entering a death spiral, engineers are leaving in droves, which is causing more more engineers to start looking, which is causing testers and project managers to start looking. Yeah,...

    Advice to Management

    From VP up? You've failed. Resign. Quit. Leave. Stand down. Give your notice. Pack it in. Give up. Jump Ship. Vacate. Surrender. Forgo. Oh and apologize to every current and former employee that has given their all to this company on the way out.
