    I have been working at Avid Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tuition re-reimbursement, challenge of supporting cutting edge media tools for a recession-proof, constantly evolving industry. The chance to contribute to a global enterprise and solve problems for editors and contributors all over the world. The chance to solve problems for creative content contributors on the other side of the globe.

    Cons

    Big and well-organized (but less-industry focused) competitors crowding out the market, Bungling of financials by unsound executive teams of the past, Turnover. Executives have not garnered morale in the past with a series of nearly yearly layoffs and project cancellations. Many good engineers have simply moved on on their own volition.

    Advice to Management

    Work more closely with product teams to build future solutions. We need more openness and transparency. It would be nice to get more frequent updates on the results of current campaigns.

    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.
