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

    Pros

    There are a few dedicated employees left who care about Avid products and put customers first.

    Cons

    Since 2008, Avid has been on a steady decline and have lost their way in a marketplace where they were once dominant. Attrition has been high every year since then (cost cutting through many layoffs) and the company has let go many entertainment industry experts who knew the market needs and how to make a good product. Completely inept CEO and upper management do not know the industries Avid products belong to. They... are out of touch and company morale can't get any lower. Who hired these clowns??

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs to resign. That's a good first step.

    Pros

    Pretty cool technology. Free coffee.

    Cons

    No direction or execution. Too many old-timers still hanging around doing nothing but cashing huge pay-checks and adding no value. Lots of "in-fighting" , as another person stated "who will back-stab you and throw you under the bus next". Way too much debt with large loans looming. Take a look at the Q2 financials. When the loans come due there won't be money to pay them. Goodbye Avid as it will then be sold... off in pieces.

    Advice to Management

    Stop all the meaningless talk. Make concrete changes and a plan to deliver results. Half of the E-staff are totally incompetent and need to be replaced. Seems the E-staff is pretty unhappy these days because their stock options aren't looking too good. Seems that is their primary self-centered concern, to cash ASAP and get out, except for those who will have no where to g.o. And that will be at least half of... them.
