    The benefits are still decent and my colleagues were fun to work with.

    The company has been cutting positions to the point that those who are left can't possibly handle the workload.

    Value your employees and stop rewarding yourselves for destroying the company.

    Pros

    Was able to work with SIP and VoIP technology. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    Avaya bought out Nortel Government Solutions, which was a much better organization to work for. The current owners of Avaya are trying to maximize margins at the expense of infrastructue in order to IPO the company. This has resulting in the loss of good, viable contracts which don't look sexy enough for Wall Street.

    Advice to Management

    Submit your resumes to other employers.
