The pay was good, however the work culture was lacking
Installation Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TexasSeptember 22, 2017
Constantly putting out fires. Needed to be proactive in work procedures. Policy and Procedures needed to be adhered to. The hardest part of the job was never really being off work. The Best part of the job was the other team members in Houston.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Constant Crisis

I cannot give a public opinion of this company. Most of the people I worked with are great people. They have a diverse group of people. A lot of them I would consider friends.

Good culture - High stress
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILAugust 1, 2017
Good people and support but upper management needs to be more involved in setting customer expectations. Benefits are not great but ok. Tough to carve out vacation time with how fast the projects come in and need to be completed.

Installer/Warehouse (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 6, 2017
Not very good at communication. Kind of like an old boys club. Also the travel and wear and tear on my car was not worth the money they paid. Very bad at communication.

Great introduction to the A/V industry
Sales Administrator (Former Employee) –  Long Island City, NYJune 6, 2017
AVISPL is a fast paced environment. There are always deadlines to be met and projects to be completed within a quick turnaround. I learned a great deal about A/V and working on RFP's.

Company was adequate to work for. Employees tend to stay around a long time, although advancement was minimal. Work/life balance was OK and salary was compatible.

Any (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLMay 20, 2017
Most people in the lower level to mid level positions remain in that position...they rarely advance. Those individuals have worked 3-9 years in the same position.

Not a bad place to work
iTAC Technician (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLMay 16, 2017
AVI SPL will take what you give and utilized it to their benefit - that includes work life balance - if you give an hour extra time or 10 extra to complete projects they'll happily accept but don't acknowledge it in reviews/compensation.

It felt like working for a small business with family members. Everyone is nice and easily able to get along with.
Pros
Large enough and small enough - everyone feels like family
Cons
PTO - 2 weeks for sick/vacation/holiday period

Productive and flexible workplace.
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 25, 2017
-Flexible self managed days with an incredible culture.
-I learned more here about people, variables that come with managing, and myself, personally, than I ever have in my life.
-Management is amazing and supportive, extremely encouraging and knowledgeable.
-Workplace culture was amazing. The reason people stay for so long is because of the people and the work environment we've all created.
-The hardest part of the job was managing the amount of jobs we would get at a time. AVI-SPL is the #1 AV integrator in the world for a reason and we stayed busy. I actually enjoyed the hardest part of the job because it made the days fly by.
-The co-workers, from management to the union installers. The culture is amazing and a productive place to succeed day to day.
Pros
Culture, free food, flexible schedule
Cons
Benefits, incentives, raises

If you like bad management...
Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXApril 13, 2017
then AVI-SPL is the company for you.

Projects are never completed on time due to poor management of the project from the get-go. Often miss clients requirements, install systems that don't meet their use case, and try to commission systems before the install is even complete.

No bonuses or raises. Everything would be perfect if they would recognize their long-time employees. Otherwise, they are close to home and I cannot complain there.

Best Job
Customer Service Specialist/ Reservationist (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHNovember 11, 2016
A typical day was busy. Customer service and troubleshooting skills.
Management was awesome. Always willing to fight for you. Could not ask for better co-workers we were a team, a family. Hardest part of the job was having to leave it. The most enjoyable part was working with people all over the world, working with great people, it felt like i was really doing something good.
Pros
great pay great benefits flexible
Cons

Service Sales Rep - Exclusive Enterprise Accts
Service Renewal Rep - Exclusive Accts (Former Employee) –  Home-officeSeptember 27, 2016
Worked there for almost (2) years.

Renewal of annual ProAV and VTC maintenance for enterprise and exclusive Accounts - East

Hardest part of the job was unstable vendor certification status that would preclude being able to sell customer centric service and often would have to resell manufacturer direct services rather than value- ad AVISPL service offerings

Most enjoyable was working closely with the various sale office staff to position best fit hybrid models to ensure maximum adoption and world class customer satisfaction

Politics a factor
CAD Draftsman (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FL 33634August 20, 2016
When you are hired to do a specific job and the people you are under seem to control your daily tasks, it makes it difficult to get your job accomplished. Politics played a big factor in this company. When the Project Manager had no knowledge of AutoCAD and depended on generic drawings such as Visual Basics to relay his accomplishments and thoughts and when that was not done, they would run or complain to management that the job or task was not accomplished to their liking or standards.
Pros
Technology, support staff outstanding
Cons
Politics
