      Pros

      Working with very good coworkers. A good place to be temporarily while finding a job. Most of the people I met at the company are looking for other jobs.

      Cons

      Low pay, below average benefits, managements have no direction, managed by their owner (Motorola Solutions Inc) who doesn't know or care about Avigilon employees, high turnover rate, also the number of people that leave is much higher than the number of new hires. Last but not least, management seem really nice, but at the end you will realize that you were being lied to the entire time, to prevent that, get management to sign any promises they give you on paper.
