    I worked at Avigilon full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Working as a team doing fast paced assembly. Learning how various security cameras are constructed. Monthly birthday celebrations. Occasional company BBQ.

    Cons

    You have to enjoy repetitive and fast paced work. There are constant production targets that have to be made. The night shift at the Richmond location finishes after the last bus of the day so a car may be required.

    Pros

    Everyone is respectable, has a clean pantry large enough for all production workers, free coffee and utilities whenever you need it. Has ample parking area for a shift only.

    Cons

    Employees have to pay their share of the benefits when it is merged into a bigger company, employees do not have their representation to management when things get sour.

    I worked at Avigilon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Many great people in there. Solid benefits and decent pay. Can be a fun place to work but that can depend on the team you join. Interesting technology but your working on a old monolithic solution. New CEO has a clear vision and places an emphasis on solid engineering practices. Overall a very positive experience.

    Cons

    Management can be little detached. Very little direction or clarity about progressing in the company.

    Pros

    - great & friendly coworkers to interact with every day - fairly competitive salary - beautiful office in a great location

    Cons

    - lack of change management strategy and transparency post Motorola Solutions acquisition - limited to no discussions around opportunities and career growth - strong feelings of uncertainty in the company (many people are feeling less job secure and also uncertain about the company's future) - lack of direction and clear business goals throughout the organization - very busy ALL THE TIME, which quickly leads to burnout
