    Pros

    Good exposing/learning to AV systems. If you have never been in AV broadcasting industrial then it is a place to experience.

    Cons

    Low pay, only 3 sick days , dental/medical benefit is below standard, disorganized workplace due to none skilled managers. Most of managers who're running the place are friend/ family relative with some person in higher management. Traditional "Family business" cultural type. No proper training, messy management.

    Advice to Management

    Department managers are need to be reviewed and qualified with actual skills in managing people before promoting not pick and choose your own favoritism. Use your brain not your heart in promoting or hiring a manager position.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to take on leadership roles and learn technical av products. Offers road bonuses when traveling, and overtime

    Cons

    Need to travel 2-3 weeks of every month to make a decent wage. May be in a project management role for years before they make you an official project manager by title, and therefore you take on more high stress work with little compensation. Engineers who you have lead over are often higher paid and lower skill level. High employee turnover due to burnout.

    Pros

    great coworkers, opportunity to travel

    Cons

    -embarrassingly low salary with very basic benefits
    -very cheap, does not treat employees like a tech company should
    -working conditions are poor. The office feels very barebones. Bad coffee, no snacks or drinks
    -no office events, BBQ's etc
    -feels like the employees are not valued in general

    Advice to Management

    learn that employees are the key to happy customers. treat employees better or they will leave!

    Look at the market for what an acceptable salary is like. Do not take advantage of employees. Sure, start them low, but then aggressively increase salary if employees prove themselves!
