    Pros

    great compagnie and amazing market position. some of the best ressources in the industry with the support of every vendor there is.

    Cons

    stretchs ressources too thin and does not have a good record for execution.

    Advice to Management

    focus on core items rather than chasse everything that moves. Good team will always follow directions at their own detriment until they burn out and can't anymore... that's why I left.

    Pros

    AVI-SPL through its leadership and employees has created a corporate culture which allows you to really feel like you are part of a team with shared goals and ambitions. They not only care about what you contribute to the greater company goals but also how you are as a person. AVI-SPL has gone out of their way to make sure that all employees have access to superb personal and professional support structures. In my role as an account manager, I feel like I matter and that my contribution is not only noticed but appreciated. I feel empowered and encouraged to excel.

    Cons

    I don't feel that there are any cons to work here as any concerns that I have expressed I have felt comfortable and encouraged to share with those who could assist me. They listened to what I had to say and worked with myself to overcome any challenges I faced.

    Pros

    Progressive company with a strong community focus. We are made to feel we are part of a team here that all want to achieve the same goal of providing excellent customer experience

    Cons

    the size of the company is a little intimidating not sure who to talk to about what.

    Advice to Management

    Work on top down engagement from all levels. The recent town hall was great but for immediate supervisors it would be great to see one on one professional development planning. This is done but check-in and updates would help to strengthen these relationships
