Used to be great company, now tied up with processes, too fast growth and top management mistakes

I worked at AVG Technologies full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great team, product used and appreciated by so many people globally and helping people (free product)

Cons

Disconnect between top management and personnel - primarily cultural (American vs Europe), too many incompetent hires in top mgmt mean too frequent changes in strategy

Recommends

    I have been working at AVG Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    free lunch, nice location, neat ideas, smart people

    Cons

    politics galore, self interest running wild, not a lot of fun making money off search in a toolbar that is hard to get rid of. Not real rewarding to fight games in the office and with HQ all the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down the barriers and build packages and exits for people that don't encourage just quick wins, find new ways to make money other than toolbars users can't get rid of, hire some real management that cares

    I worked at AVG Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits - Health and Dental and 401K. Probably the best in the industry.
    Excellent people - Will remain in contact with numerous former employees
    Good brand recognition - potential customers know about AVG. Above average technology. Has a good/great product.

    Cons

    With the company recently becoming public, only corporate got to take advantage, no rewards for the employees.
    Employees worried about the daily phone calls then building relationships with customers and long term success.
    Little to none career advancement
    High turnover rate and managers from the UK/Czech lack the knowledge of the US market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The product has excellent brand recognition, decide whether you want to give the product away or focus on the business market.
    Offer Employee stock options to further support employee success.
    Work on employee morale and customer satisfaction and have corporate understand the US market.

    Doesn't Recommend
