I worked at AVAD full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Decent pay with great benefits, good group of people for the most part, meaning well and trying hard but falling far short of their goals

Cons

Most frustrating Software system in the world that does not lend itself to the Point of Sale system that is their core business (making a customer wait for 1/2 hr for a $50 part is bad business! a daily occurrence!!!!) An ever changing sales strategy and a churning of employees second to none. could not recommend this Company

    I worked at AVAD full-time

    Pros

    Access to multiple technologies & talented people. They are a large company, so can provide for trainings, etc. to aid thier employees.

    Cons

    Dying market scrambling to find new products to push on overstressed dealers & thier clients. They are A pretty massive company that is owned by one of the largest companies in the world. At the end of the day, as an employee, you are just a number filling a chair

    Advice to Management

    Accept the limits of your market don't push dealers into markets/ technologies they can't propperly use-- you're only hurting your own customers.

    Pros

    Fun Industry and there are good product lines. Counter staff can make a decent living, but don't expect rapid advancement.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless and arrogant. AVAD doesn't promote from within. The company has done nothing but go downhill since Ingram Micro purchased it. High turnover in management ranks means you're either working for hatchet men or people inexperienced with handling people.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone who knows what they are doing and move on to something else. Promotion from with in would be nice.
