    I worked at Avid Technology full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    My direct manager was great. Got to visit some interesting customers and work on some cool products.

    Cons

    Senior management has no clue what they are doing to the point that we have been delisted and lost all our value. Was a public company yet stopped releasing financial earnings, hence the delisting. Executives want to run the company like a bank with no experience with the market Avid is in. Executives do not like any criticism of the plan and do not want to offer any specifics to the "Everywhere Strategy". Constant offshoring...

    Advice to Management

    Release some earnings so Avid can get back some of the reputation. At least have feature parity with the competition so we stop losing market share on all fronts.

    I worked at Avid Technology for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People I worked with were all professional and good at their jobs. Travel was interesting and clientele were often very interesting.

    Cons

    Getting paid once a month half way through the next month; job details often kept from contractor until or after last minute.

    Advice to Management

    The Salesforce system doesn't list basic info. like start and end time, and project managers sometimes do not have that information listed either.
