    I worked at Audigy Group for less than a year

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment, fun office. There is the opportunity to move up quickly if you show a lot of interest to the right people.

    Cons

    A lot of leadership positions were filled with individuals who lack leadership qualities. Just because someone has been there longer, does not mean they should be giving a specific title.

    I have been working at Audigy Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I've spent the past 10 years as a part of the Audigy team. My first four years were in what is now known as the Strategic Business Unit (SBU) team as a Marketing Manager. Those were the start-up days: full of optimism, bootstrap effort, late nights and rapid growth. As someone who experienced that unique start-up, "Audigy-family" culture, I can understand how it wouldn't be the right fit for everyone. That being said, we have grown, we have added outside perspectives, and we have evolved while hoping to maintain that indescribable feeling you get when you realize work can be more than just a paycheck. The fact of the matter is, Audigy is the right fit for the majority of our 250 employees. Come visit us-- you'll see that it is evident on our faces. It is evident in the quality of work we're doing. It is evident in the way we treat each other. Contrary to some of the other personal opinions shared, we have a great deal of respect for each other regardless of personal tastes in leadership books, speaking styles, cars, watches, etc!

    Cons

    As you would expect, I have days where I have to pinch myself and days where I have to take an Advil or two! It is hard work starting a company. It is hard work supporting small business owners who face fierce competition. It is hard work inspiring people to get out of their comfort zone. It is even harder work pushing myself to get out of my own comfort zone! My sincere perspective is that Audigy has great expectations of and for individuals like myself. It hasn't been easy. But I wouldn't trade my experiences here for anything because I am proud of what I have accomplished and proud of the people I work for and with.

    I worked at Audigy Group

    Pros

    The training and career progression is incredible at Audigy Group. I started my career there right out of college and grew in a short period of time to lead a team. They are supportive, progressive, cutting-edge, and savvy in their growth. They offer an amazing benefits package.

    Cons

    The only downside of working here was that they are located in Vancouver and unfortunately I needed to be in Seattle. They do not offer bonuses for the execution side of the business but more for the strategic employees.

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

    Pros

    I've worked at Audigy Group for over 2 years. During that time, I've been fortunate to work with some truly great people. One of the trends you will see in all reviews for Audigy Group is the quality of the people that call the company home. Its true -- I've made friendships here that will last a lifetime. These are smart people who are genuinely interested in learning and doing their absolute best. I work in the marketing department and have over 20 years of experience in marketing. One of my personal joys is teaching others and sharing what I know and by and large my coworkers are always anxious to learn new things. My supervisor (she would hate that word) recognized this early on and she has given me the opportunity to do that as much as I like, which is awesome. Maybe I've just been fortunate to get face time with senior management but I've always found them to be reasonable, good people. I've never been shut down when presenting my views on either my job or my opinion of the company, in fact just the opposite has been true. I realize not everyone has these same opportunities, but take a chance and voice concerns you have to them -- you might be surprised at their willingness to hear you out. The last point that comes to mind for the "Pros" category to me would be trust. I feel trusted to do my job. This is huge for me because I hate being micromanaged, and I'm not.

    Cons

    I don't have the work-life balance issues of some of the other folks who have posted reviews, but my role within the company is very different than most. I do lament that sometimes our collective focus is set on keeping up with the daily demands of the job and not as much on innovating for the future. But I've worked in lots of places where that has been the case. It is a fine balance to be kept. There have been numerous comments about recognition. Sometimes the contributions of people on smaller teams goes unnoticed but this is a fairly large company and I don't think its an intentional thing. Promotions here are based not off just job execution but also adherence to leadership philosophies that the company teaches. I guess I'd describe it as a meritocracy+ in that, yeah you have to do a good job but you also need to demonstrate certain qualities in the way you lead others. I feel this might be a little subjective, but its not outrageous or anything. Either you accept this or don't but it is what it is. You also may need to cheerlead for yourself a bit. Last "Con" is its in Vancouver and I live in Beaverton! That's right, i drive over an hour one way to work each day. But i guess you could flip that around and call it a "Pro" because i still do it anyway.

    I have been working at Audigy Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Before working for Audigy Group I worked a series of jobs. That is what they felt like. I've worked at Audigy Group for three years and I feel like I've found a career. I am constantly challenged, which has helped me grow significantly. The company promotes from within whenever possible, and is growing quickly which means a lot of potential opportunity to those who earn it. Helping small businesses become successful is incredibly inspirational. We are helping the little guys succeed. This business is driven by team work, collaboration and personal growth. The company's goal is to help both clients and employees achieve their goals. The people and team environment makes every day a good one. I look forward to going to work in the morning.

    Cons

    Audigy Group isn't for everybody. We live by the motto - success starts outside of your comfort zone. We work really hard, but there's more of a balance than the other reviewers imply. This isn't a place for somebody who wants an easy, simple job. Everyday is different and a new challenge.
