    Pros

    Avaya is engaging with customers and other service providers in a collaborative fashion these days. They are introducing many apps that can be proprietary or adaptive to whatever solution you already have installed.

    Cons

    The company is shrinking due to its new business model.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure you are making smart business decisions when it comes to personnel holding security clearances. The Federal market typically requires US citizenship and often requires a security clearance.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, good technology which should not be hard to sell. Benefits in line with the average companies in the industry. Allows, supports and encourages the virtual worker environment

    Cons

    Very Conservative behavior when it comes to offer development and risk taking in order to stay ahead of the race. Compensation is not good. Benefits are ok, not great.

    Advice to Management

    Make the offer teams take more risks and think outside the box

    Pros

    I believe that Avaya has great products and are trying to do the right things to improve business operations.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there are too many short term thinkers around that prevent long term sustainable solutions from flourishing. Hard workers seem to be the ones that have a hard time getting promotions and I believe we are severely top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about your cash out opportunities, have your team back instead of the prevalent
