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

Pros

Great, dedicated workers. Interesting product ideas.

Cons

Too many VPs and Senior Managers who get inb the way of a great company. Avid is too worried about Wall Street, and commits "unnatural business acts" as a result.

Advice to Management

Fire most of yourselves and put the decisions in the hands of the bright engineers!

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

    Pros

    Great products (or did have once upon a time) in audio, music, video. Talented and enthusiastic people with interest in (and experience) in arts and media

    Cons

    highly disorganized. Poor strategy, communication, etc. Top executives do not understand the markets for most of the products

    Advice to Management

    go manage something that doesn't require an understanding of creative professionals

    I worked at Avid Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and an easy going environment. A lot of room to grow and to share your expertise and opinion. It's a world-wide company, but you would think your fellow employees are in the next room. Internal communication is done very well. You feel that you belong and that you're always included.

    Cons

    A lot of new management has some growing pains. There have also been 2 large layoffs in the past few years. The company handled it well, however you can never be sure of the stability and that forces a lot of employees "jumping ship" to protect themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the environment. Wonderful, intelligent people work there. Continue your hiring process and continue to grow and find ways to keep the people you have.
