A good work culture

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Avast gives its employees the ability and flexibility to get the necessary work done. A lot of companies will limit its employees based on job title or description with very little opportunity for personal improvement or the ability to suggest how processes might be improved. At Avast, strong performance is rewarded with the ability to make suggestions, and displayed ability can get you access to further training and systems, enabling you to work with as many people and systems as you can effectively manage.

Unorganized Chaos

Definitely the worst employment decision i have ever made. They are unorganized and really have no idea what they are doing from a business to business direct sales standpoint.

Pros

Unlimited PTO

Cons

No communication from management

Solid product line

Avast has a great product line and is a innovator in on-line sales of internet security products. Business products get the back seat to consumer products.

Modern workspace with great work life balance

Great work life balance and place where you can work with modern technologies. But management is afraid of decisions that could move company forward. Below average salaries.

very nice company at the beginning

very nice company to work for at the beginning. Then it became too much business and results oriented, losing the initial spirit and culture

Expect nothing - You won't be dissapointed

Company rests on the backs of a few people - the rest are friends from the same frisbee team. All founders have cashed out and left long ago. This place exists as a kind of jobs program for frisbee friends - the company is unashamedly proud of this. Not much is done all day but there a plenty of meetings. Seems most of the time is spent playing with dogs and socializing. The core of the product has been recreated by Google, Verizon, Apple and multiple other MDM offerings. Their lunch has been eaten. This will not be a company in 5 years.

Pros

Free to work on your own projects

Cons

No upward mobility unless you are a favorite.

Ambiente inmejorable, tanto la oficina como los compa√Īeros inmejorables.

- Realizaba tareas de etiquetado, t√©cnico de problemas inform√°ticos, actualizar y configurar los firmware de los dispositivos de la oficina, ayudar a empleados con problemas hardware y software... - Aprend√≠ como funciona un CPD bien construido, como funciona el active directory de una gran empresa... - Los jefes y compa√Īeros eran muy serviciales y me prestaron toda ayuda que necesitaba. - La parte m√°s dif√≠cil era terminar el trabajo en las fechas propuestas. - Lo que m√°s me gust√≥ de la empresa, es que consideran al empleado como el principal punto de preocupaci√≥n y cuidado. La empresa contaba con buffet libre, sala de recreativas, gimnasio, biblioteca, cine, guarder√≠a, sala de relajaci√≥n, para todos los empleados, la funci√≥n era hacer que el empleado estuviera agusto en la empresa para poder aprovechar el mayor rendimiento de √©l, haciendo de la empresa un lugar c√≥modo en el que trabajar, gracias a esto, a cuidar al empleado, le ha llevado a ser una gran empresa.

Pros

Preocupación y cuidado principal del empleado

Cons

Ninguna

Great Company but in a Foreign Land

Avast is a great company with an outstanding future. Avast (a CZ company) recently purchased AVG (a US company). I was/am an AVG employee. The new combined company desires to have their employees to be in CZ. There are large lay-offs coming of mostly folks not working in CZ.

Pros

Great company, great future

Cons

CZ based
