    I have been working at Avigilon

    Pros

    Great coworkers and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Manager is a bully and will blame team for everything. Forced overtime and forced to work weekends.i heard there was a great team that were paid more a few years ago and they all left or were let go as they made the manager and TL look bad justifiably. Team Lead is incompetent doesn’t know how to do the job. Does not reply to your emails or instant msg. Both mgr and TL are never to be found in the office and don’t... tell you that they are off or working from home. Both don’t know new processes and makes the most senior team member teach the team .

    I worked at Avigilon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are great Colleagues are great

    Cons

    High stress Favoritism Management puts you down High turn over in customer service Theres no proper training Managment is condescending

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to reevaluate customer service manager. Customer Service is turn over central, you could be the favourite of the month then the next you have a target on your back. Upper management needs to see what their customer service reps go through. Everyone is overworked and depressed.

    I have been working at Avigilon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy and ability to make your own schedule. A lot of travel involved. Good base salary.

    Cons

    Can be isolating to work remotely all the time. Difficult targets to hit and commission percentage goes down as quota goes up year over year so if you don't hit targets you will earn less.

    Advice to Management

    More of a conversation around quota and target increases with employees would be good.

    I worked at Avigilon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Rock solid product line. Easy to sell once in front of customers.

    Cons

    Extreme micromanagement. If you have a great sales year expect that to be overwhelmed by your next quota and to make less money even though the your sales increase.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on growing reps rather than managing reports. You have skilled sales people, trust them and let them grow rather than choke them with tedious busy work in the CRM.

    Former Employee - Rather Not Say

    I worked at Avigilon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay was very good. Also had one of the best managers I've ever had (I was a remote employee, so can't speak for Avigilon's head office)

    Cons

    There was a lot of grumbling from the Sales team, which I found pretty demotivating. Their compaints were around their Management. The company's approach to sales was very aggressive, but it clearly paid off.

    Advice to Management

    Sales Management needs a shake-up in certain regions.
