Topics regarding layoffs at Avid Technology Inc.


Can't stop wondering, of all possible buyers, why STG? Price is underwhelming, buyer has no track record in the media industry, is not a bigger player in tech, and most of their previous investments have been sold. Trying to see the upsides, but... —  read more

Bloated management

Avid upper management is always so trigger-happy when it comes to layoffs, EXCEPT when management needs cutting. Everybody here knows that our management is bloated. There are many useless positions with so few direct reports that getting rid of half... —  read more

Four years at Avid Technology

Last week was my fourth anniversary working here. Honestly, I didn't expect I'd last that long. There was one thing that was a constant from day one - and that's layoffs. And if layoffs are not happening, then there's always a threat of layoffs. And... —  read more

Layoffs and furloughs?

How many were quietly exited this time, under the excuse of the pandemic? Cancellation of a couple of big deals to blame? Talk of 18 month furlough programs being initiated from Avid HQ?

Anybody left at Avid to step up?

I guess one would have to ask, is there anyone who still works at Avid that would actually care to step up with any ideas, new products, innovative ideas to enhance current product suite, and the actual skill to do it? If so, now would probably be... —  read more

Layoff was pre-NAMM this time

At least 4 people from my team were impacted. NAMM was positive from what I heard. Pro Tools is only 10 years behind other DAWs now. Few more people are on their way out voluntarily or interviewing. Sad.. I am giving it some more time to see what the... —  read more
