    I worked at Avigilon for less than a year

    Pros

    Really interesting work being done creating complex computer vision products. A lot of experience to be gained.

    Cons

    Not much. Just some growing pains from moving into a bigger office. They are probably all resolved now.

    I worked at Avigilon for less than a year

    Pros

    I had the chance to work with some really creative and hardworking people. The system I was told to develop covered a broad range of camera hardware, and required me to implement several fairly detailed computer vision algorithms. Overall, it was really fun.

    Cons

    I was expected to finish developing the system by the end of the internship. It was a lot of work, and I had to work for close to 12 hours on a daily basis during the last month (so 4 hours unpaid every day).

    Advice to Management

    Try to make the workplace a bit more friendly and give encouragement to people that work a lot of unpaid hours to make the product better.

    I have been working at Avigilon full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, nice office, good benefits, stock purchase plan matching, mostly likeable coworkers. There used to be some political drama involving some legacy employees as the company evolved from a startup and grew from there, but things have calmed down. I highly recommend enrolling into the employee stock purchase plan as you are most likely going to profit, even if the share price drops, since they match 100% of... your contribution. Also, a lot of these reviews talk about being overworked. I'd say that's not the case for the software department.

    Cons

    Not all employees are a cultural fit, sometimes confusion about what's required of the product

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that are better cultural fits!
