Pros

If you're ready, willing, and able to relocate, PSAV has tremendous opportunities for career advancement. This is a great place for a technical person who is interested in moving into business management or for an entry-level AV technician looking to hone his/her skills.

The company values communication and goes to great lengths to (1) facilitate discussion across the org chart and (2) make information accessible to employees.

Because so much of the company is geographically decentralized, locations operate with a generous amount of freedom. This autonomy can be a boon or a burden. Generally speaking, this self-reliance is a great motivator and helps foster creativity.

Cons

The nature of the business - which relies heavily on maintaining contracts with hotels and convention centers - requires a great deal of flexibility. Certain locations may see high levels of turnover, but the company as a whole seems to retain its employees. The constant surplus of job openings creates a sort of safety net in this regard.

    Pros

    Swank is a well run company from a corporate standpoint. They frequently promote from within and work very hard to help their people succeed. The culture is better than many other jobs and offers many of the perks of working for a small close knit business while offering the benefits of a large corporation.

    Cons

    How good a particular property is seems to depend largely on the competence and work ethic of that properties director. That said, many directors seem to burn out quickly as they are frequently overworked and under-appreciated as with most middle management positions. Getting fired from Swank seems next to impossible, which can be a problem when directors are mistreating their direct reports and taking advantage of the system.

    Advice to Management

    Some system to allow the staff of a property to review the performance of their director would be a big help. Also, acting on the results of such a review would be very helpful toward truly setting Swank apart from other employers.
