Negative Outlook

I have been working at Audio Video Systems full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You can apply got a security clearance from them. You get vacation time right away after 90 days. The pay is decent.

Cons

They say you will only travel 15% of the time. However I have been on the road 1.5 months out of the first five months in 2012 and I have another upcoming 6 week trip directly next week. Whats worse is they do not provide rental cars or cover all of the milage for business travels. You will spend your money to do AVS's work. If that were not bad enough while out on the road they work you 6 to 7 days a week at 10 to 13 hour days with no overtime pay if you are a programmer or engineer. They will work you this way until you find another job and resign or can't take it anymore and quit. If you're a tech you can expect to be treated even worse.

Advice to Management

Treat your people with respect and not like machines.

    I worked at Audio Video Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Consistency. The people you work with are mostly great people you wouldn't mind bending over backwards for. Some of the management people are very understanding and want to help you however their power is limited with upper management.

    Cons

    Upper Management (self-proclaimed boss) is horrifically degrading towards it's employees and would rather insult an employee rather than work through the problem including the use of unnecessary profanity. The socialization and punishment for socialization is similar to that of high school.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic. If you want a person to work harder their needs to be incentive other than not getting fired.
