I worked at Avid Technology full-time

Pros

It was a fast paced, technical environment. Great for those who are creative and also want to learn a variety of technologies in a short amount of time.

Cons

Executives are highly compensated individuals because they're expected to lead a company through the hills and valleys of today's global economic challenges. If anyone could do it, we'd all be applying for the job. A lot of families were hurt by a continuim of bad decisions within a poorly managed company.

Advice to Management

At the end of the day; you own the balance sheet. Many of us would love to have a job where we could say we lost millions because of soft markets. Being good operationally is no substitute for creative business management...hence the stock price. Speak as if you do "own" it. Use the words "I" or "We" for the good and the bad news.

    I worked at Avid Technology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Products and industry are cool

    Cons

    New management sucked the life out of the place. Lost the cultural elements that made it a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Good to see Gary gone

    I worked at Avid Technology full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Comp is fair

    They invest in their personnel with training

    a few very dedicated and talented contributors spread throughout the organization

    they value process

    Cons

    management layers are dense

    decision making process is slow and very bureaucratic

    executive leadership is out of touch, disconnected from the realities of the products, customer and markets

    one size fits all approach to managing almost everything in the organization limits everyone's ability to be effective

    shared services model for hardware engineering is dysfunctional

    Advice to Management

    Step aside.
