Fast growing company
Team Leader/Systems Assembler II (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXJuly 7, 2018
I was OK to work there at first. They didn't have an employee hand book so they often changed their rules to fit what they wanted. They are bullies. There is NO work life balance. Quid pro quo got some promotions and some demoted or fired. They have recently been acquired by Motorola, so I hope they have a better management group. The products are exceptional. The company culture is not.

Good people but no control measures
Receiving Lead (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXDecember 21, 2017
This company has a good atmosphere because of the people there but lacks any kind of process control measures that would sustain job stability.

It is a sales oriented business that overlooks inventory control measures in order to push out customer products.

The priority levels in each department goes as follow.

1st Shipping
2nd Production
3rd Receiving
4th Inventory

Fortune 500 companies operate at a 99% level of inventory accuracy.
This company does not.

Great place to work!
Buyer (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXSeptember 15, 2017
Avigilon is one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S.
It maintains a Canadian-based culture, thus heavily-emphasized teamwork is the ongoing mentality, even with managers.
Benefits are outstanding!

Although it is fast-paced, especially at the end of each quarter, the environment is totally enjoyable to work within.
Plus, the products that are manufactured at Avigilon are top-tier. Thus, high emphasis on quality components, production, packaging, shipping, and after-market.

If I didn't have to relocate for my wife's career advancement, I would love to have worked at Avigilon until retirement!
Pros
Outstanding benefits and work environment!
Cons
Sometimes long hours are required, but that's at any successful company.

Moderately okay experience
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXAugust 13, 2017
The workplace at Avigilon had good teamwork.
Management was not as effective as previous experiences with other companies.
Workload emphasized quantity over quality, resulting in less than desirable work space, lead to many redundant repeating task.

Proceed with Caution
Senior Copywriter (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 13, 2017
Middle managers are routinely fired (no severance, no "thank you," just Bye!). Others aren't safe either, so there is an odd culture of fear that prevents teamwork, vision, or any kind of morale. The "C" suite has yet to figure out where the real problem is coming from...ahem.

There are no processes, no forward thinking beyond the next trade show. Hard to do when management keeps turning over.

Skills of employees in the trenches are not being used to their advantage, and there are lots of excellent people who work here. I had 30 years of experience that was totally ignored. I was expected to be an order taker rather than any kind of visionary. My opinions were never taken seriously, yet people with less than a year's experience in the business world were put on a pedestal. Highly frustrating position.
Pros
Excellent pay, Good health insurance, Dallas location has a good view of downtown
Cons
Management that ignores employees, Lack of vision, Lack of processes, No sense of teamwork whatsoever

Best gear in the industry but many many growing pains.
Sales Engineer (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXMay 24, 2016
Avigilon definitely has the best IP based cameras on the market bar none. Unfortunately growing a 500 employee company over 130% in under 12 months has brought on many growing pains and the explosion of business has management scrambling to get a grip on business. I imagine this will come to a head and explode but either way it will be dealt with by internal and probably done in good old Avigilon fashion. Very well. But until then things seem to be a bit chaotic with the usual corporate back stabbing and ladder climbing that you would expect from such a young company. I think in the end, Avigilon's product will have a sticking factor and continue to beat out all of their competition as they will continue to focus on ground breaking technology. It seems that Avigilon's only competition at this point is Avigilon.
Pros
Best ip Based camera products in the market and very exciting technology.
Cons
Poorly handled growth management and very cut throat employees.
