Typical Day at work
Audio Visual Technician (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNFebruary 21, 2017
I usually set up audio visual equipment for the clients that come in. Unfortunately I haven't gotten the chance to do any live sound even though I have live sound experience and I'm not sure why.

Terrible company to work for
Event Technology Specialist (Former Employee) –  Boston, MAJanuary 30, 2017
I worked for PSAV for one year rite after graduating from college. They abuse their employees by overwork them and underpay them. They charge their clients so much for labor but you never get to see the money. Most employees and directors are decent people but the senior management makes it difficult. If you are fresh out of college, trying to get an experience , and learn skills its an okay company but definitely not a long-term company...unless you don't mind being miserable.
Pros
Free food
Cons
No work and life balance, under paid, over-worked

Great Opportunity To Advance If You Are A Go Getter -
Senior Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Southern CaliforniaJanuary 14, 2017
Fun Work - Great Learning Resources ( When They Work). Tremendous Opportunity For Growth -

The Compensation Is Below The Industry Median Range - ( considerably low) They Boast About Being A Billion Dollar Company - However; They Do Not Reward Those Who Make Those Billions Possible-

Operations Heavy , Little Support For Sales Teams .

Poorly Structured Infrastructure -Overworked and Squeezed For Profits-
Pros
Great Opportunity To Advance - Good Health Benefits- Good Tools Of The Trade Provided--
Cons
Underpayed, 401k Stinks, - Commission Structure Needs Improvement. To Catch Up With Industry Standards

A Great Job To Develop Your Professional Skills
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Schaumburg, ILJanuary 10, 2017
I enjoyed my time at PSAV. Working in a convention hotel environment afforded me the opportunity to meet and work with some outstanding professionals. Each day presented new challenges and opportunities to learn. The most difficult part of this job was anticipating your work schedule as some months are intensely busy and others aren't. But if you're flexible, proactive, and don't mind working in a fast paced environment you have a better chance of succeeding in your career here.
Pros
Great opportunities to learn and grow professionally.
Cons
Work hours can be very long or short depending on business levels.

Audio Visual Technician (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJanuary 6, 2017
The face of P.S.A.V. was the employee helping the guests at the hotel. A lot of times there was just one person so he or she had to be very courteous to the guests and really had to know what he or she was talking about to solve whatever problem might come up.
Pros
Made sure the employees were properly trained.
Cons
None I can think of.

This company is in almost every hotel in every state so it's easy to relocate. You can advance in the company but only to a point.

Not a bad company but not for everyone.
Assistant Director Of Event Technology (Former Employee) –  Denver, CONovember 16, 2016
I worked in several roles with PSAV over 5 years. They had good insurance plenty of room for advancement. However most of the jobs they offer are in thier Hotel AV department and just know that the hospitality industry can be rough and takes a certain personallyamd is certainly not for everyone. But over all they took pretty good care of me while I was with them.
Pros
good people, advancement, benefits
Cons
long hours
