I have been working at Avid Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Outstanding product, still best in its class. Nice salary, and outstanding benefits. Upper-management was very smart, even if not always technically aware of what the editing products were being used for, they were smart enough to listen to those who did.

Cons

As Apple decided to declare war on Avid, and belts had to be tightened, management made increasingly poor decisions. Emulating other editing solutions for one, then letting go of the most industry-experienced staff.

Advice to Management

Bring back the energy of a new company instead of resting on your laurels. Playing safe has helped Avid survive in name, though much less so in spirit.
