    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at PSAV full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    During the COVID-19 pandemic C-level management really stepped up. CEO and President took first pay cut (90 days) and immediately shifted budgets to keep every full time employee paid 32 hours for three weeks. When furloughs did happen full medical and dental benefits were maintained. This included employee as well as company split. For being the largest A/V Company world wide, they have not forgotten the family roots.

    Cons

    Message can get lost on the way down to line employees

    I have been working at PSAV part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay for a steady AV job they will hire with very little experience so decent place to start

    Cons

    You don't matter as much as managers, they will make sure management is happy before floor techs are happy. May loses hours at the drop of a hat, no real schedule
