The work place and people are great. The work is very tedious and repetitive.

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I'm currently working for UCPath in the benefits/operations department. The work is pretty tedious and repetitive. It requires reviewing/auditing many windows in PeopleSoft and updating Excel spreadsheets with the information.

Great place to start

They really take the time to know what the candidate wants and they look for that type of position. They guide the individual through the process very effectively. Really like the individual attention and process with them I definitely felt they were spot on with my search criteria and they were always there for me.

Fast paced staffing firm

Good for a fresh out of college person looking to get into sales or recruitment. It was a perfect place for me to get my feet wet with account management and sales.

Great People, Great Support

Avid is a great place to grow with a strong support system and culture. Management cares about your success. If you work hard and show your commitment, there is flexibility and they understand the need and value of work/life balance. You have room to make changes and management works to implement those changes that are feasible. Staffing is a tough industry and requires resilience and persistence but Avid works to balance out the tough and help you be successful. There is a lot of opportunity to make money and it takes hard work to do it.

Pros

Strong culture, support system, work life balance

Cons

Staffing can be a tough industry

Great place to start your career!

After interviewing at a lot of places after I graduated, I found AVID to be the perfect fit for what I was looking for in terms of culture, management style, and overall enjoyment for the role. You can tell everyone here cares about each other and their success. As someone who came in without any prior knowledge on technical recruiting, the company provides excellent resources and allowed me to pick things up quickly. AVID recognizes that people take different amounts of time to understand the whole process but everyone jumps at the opportunity to help out. While the hours may be a bit long, the day really flies by and you will feel productive and accomplished. Every day is different and far from boring--we keep things fun (i.e. call contests, lunch & learns, company happy hours). Overall, AVID is a great company to get your foot in the door and start your career in recruiting or sales. Success is rewarded, management does everything in their power to make people happy, and best of all everyone here is friends with each other! This company is constantly evolving and I couldn't be happier to work here as my first job.

Pros

Flexible hours, remote option, free coffees/lunches

Cons

No 401K match

Competitive place to work, great culture

I've been working at Avid for more than a year and a half. It's a very work-hard play-hard culture, but it pays off! You're rewarded for your hard work and truly see the benefits of putting the most into what you do. The Management is great. Very understanding and truly help with all questions. All team members will drop anything to help you out or answer questions. You're encouraged to ask questions, and every day is a learning opportunity.

Pros

Flex schedules, commission structure is great

Cons

Long hours

Technical Recruiter

The people who work for AVID are awesome. The culture is my favorite part - it's very much a work hard/play hard environment and you are consistently rewarded for all the effort you put in. Everyone cares about each others success and are always willing to help each other.

Pros

Good culture, great people, laid back and collaborative

Cons

Long hours, typical of the staffing industry

If you've just finished finished school, this is the place to go

The people are what makes AVID what it is. Transitioning into a new position and industry can be overwhelming but my co-workers have made it fairly painless. It's a very lucrative industry and I find it awesome that the company is so progressive in their thinking. I don't really have any cons about the company itself. However the industry itself is pretty tough, with long hours and unpredictable results. However i knew these facts when I accepted the offer.

Pros

Free lunches, coffee, hour long lunch break

Cons

tough industry, flaky candidates

FUN and Challenging!

If you're looking to join a company that has a fun, transparent, work hard play hard culture, look no further! In the 3+ years I have been with AVID there has not been a day that my hard work has gone unnoticed. Management is great at recognizing their employees and keeping the environment upbeat and fun, which is extremely important in the challenging staffing industry.

Pros

Uncapped commission, training

Great Opportunity

All I ever wanted from a prospective employer was the opportunity and support to grow both professionally and personally. AVID has provided me with both and continues to do so. It's rare to find employers that invest so heavily into their employees. They operate with transparency and give everyone a platform to speak their minds. I'm really grateful for everything AVID has given me.

AVID Technical Resources Review

I have been at AVID for close to a 5 months now and everyday has truly been a growing and learning experience. Haven't woke up one day yet and not had the urge to go to work and put in a full day. The great balance in the workplace is great. We work Hard but play even Harder. Celebrating goals hit gives you the motivation to get back and hit even more because the rewards are well above the competition. The people I work with aren't just co-workers they are my friends and that's even better to keep me motivated to perform day in and day out. Knowing that AVID is completely committed and invests in you is truly a heart warming feeling.

Pros

Uncapped commission, Training

Management Gives False Hopes - Not well respected

They are very "culty" in terms of culture and they really drink the cool-aid. Management lies to its employees, recruiters treat candidates poorly and owner is closing offices all over due to poor management. Closed NY, RI, TX all in a few weeks and try to show they are still open.

Official response from AVID Technical Resources

April 4, 2017
We at AVID work hard to build a strong team environment. We emphasize trust, communication and hard work. Every employee is extremely important to us and we strive to create a culture that supports everyone in achieving their personal and professional goals. We’ve had 14 years of continuous year-over-year growth. Staffing can be a difficult industry and requires open and honest communication with your teammates. If you have the right attitude and enjoy working in a group AVID Technical Resources can be an ideal environment to find success in.In addition, leadership goes out of their way to be open and honest and ultimately communicate to the entire company. The moves in RI and NY were discussed and reasoning disclosed (TX is still a thriving active AVID office). Nothing was hidden or could be further from the truth in the statement above.

Great company to work for

I've been working full time for the past 3+ years and it is by far the best experience I've had. If you want to learn, grow and challenge yourself, you'll be rewarded accordingly and management is very supportive/encouraging. Recruiting is not for everyone though so you have to have your competitive attitude pumping and know how to deal with set backs. We have fun though when we need to have fun but most importantly, we work hard & smart.

Best Recruiters I've Ever Worked With

Avid differentiates themselves from most of the other recruiters around in one major way: they treat you like a human being, instead of a resume to attach to a job description. They care about your success and genuinely want to find the right job for you, beyond just matching bullet points. Everyone I met in the office was friendly, helpful, and professional. I found a great job with them quite fast and hope to work with them in the future.

Would utilize this service in the future

Company is very thorough throughout the on-boarding process. Good follow up communication from initial interview to day one onsite.

Pros

Good communication

Cons

Unknown process of moving from Consultant to direct hire. As with most same type agencies, there is little incentive of this for them.

Great recruiters to work with!

Like most people - I imagine - I have a love/hate relationship with recruiters but working with AVID has been terrific. They have placed me at the best job I have ever had and my relationship with AVID has been great throughout as they actually - and really - care about my success as evidenced by their immediate follow-up and responsiveness to any issues I might be having. The reps I work with are great and they genuinely appreciate me as a client and work hard to maintain my appreciation for them, as well.

Excellent dedicated representation

They really worked to find me the perfect job. Avid reached out to me about this position and worked to make sure I would get a good chance at it. They were there supporting me all the way with interview tips to following up after. Avid really is interested in their employees before, and during employment. You are not another nameless person, but a part of their continued interests.

Pros

Dedicated representation

Cons

Nothing really - it's exceptional for a temp company
