Avid Technology Employee
in Daly City, CA

"I have worked for Avid for more than 5 years. The company has a wealth of great talent and an almost magical connection to its customers. Employees work together to solve problems and bring a good outcome for customers. The changes in the media industry have taken their toll on the company unfortunately. Frequent changes in management have not been helpful."

Junior Web Developer
in Norcross, GA

"Avid Design was a great place to begin learning web development. However, there were several front office issues such as timely pay, timely pay stubs, and timely job benefits. In other words, there were weeks where there were inconsistencies in pay. My first pay stub took nearly 3 months to receive as well as my benefits."
