Employee Comments

    Former MTS/Software Engineer in Westminster, Colorado

    The worst thing about the benefits package was the constant change in it from year to year. Avaya also provided no help when the health plan administrator insisted on a treatment different than what the doctors were willing to do.

    Current Senior Project Manager in Denver, Colorado

    Salary is above average in the market but bonus % is very low. Last few years there has been no 401K matches and paid time off has been removed, to discretionary time off (where there is no guaranteed time off)

    Former Avaya Support Engineer in Highlands Ranch, Colorado

    company contributed to 401K based on financial criteria which was rarely met - so little or no company investment much of the time.

    Dicretionary Time Off (DTO) that's a new one. Hand in your 4 weeks of paid vacation to vacation as you need (w prior approval). 401K is worst-in-class. Average <1% matching. Health plan is average.

    Best thing is work from home, and worst thing is work from home...

    Current Senior Technical Manager in Basking Ridge, New Jersey

    What benefits package? They make it so they never have to pay out on bonus, never have to match 401K, never contribute to 401K, never a raise, never a promotion, etc. Pathetic company....unless you are a senior executive in which case you are rolling in all the above! Double standard but pretty much how most large corps run it today. Terrible morale as a result. Stay away!!!!!

    The annual pay is the best part

  • Aug 2, 2014
    Current Employee in Denver, Colorado

    Benefits continue to be whittled down (for rank and file). High deductible health, vacation now converted to designated time off, matching 401k funding cut and seldom paid...

    Current Software Development Co-op in Billerica, Massachusetts

    Interns do not have any significant benefits.

    Benefits package dwindling, 401 contribution minimized
