    I have been working at Avid Technology full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Do some interesting things in digital media handling. The company future looks bright. They have recaptured the thought leader position.

    Cons

    The company is having a hard time with the transition to a performance based rewards system. Since this appears to be something new for employees who have been with the company for any amount of time. This includes the Management layer. This means that receive huge amount of recognition for relatively small contributions while others get no recognition for very significant contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Make recognition more evidence based rather than on unsupported opinions. Rewards are more tied to vague opinions rather than a concrete evidence. It makes it random who will be recognized and who are snubbed.

    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.
