    I worked at Avaya Government Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have had a great experience working for this company, It has a broad range of duties to explore and capitalize on in contributing to progress.

    Cons

    I have to say that my time was limited as to how I could show my value and accomplishment to the company, because it was contract work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My biggest issue was the remote communication, which in part may have made the advancements for me more difficult.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fairfax, VA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA

    I worked at Avaya Government Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people who I had the pleasure of working with were genuinely good people at their core. HR addressed any/all concerns I had with urgency, sincerity and made me feel like a valued employee. My contributions were rewarded with frequent bonuses, awards and teleworking days.

    Cons

    Avaya Gov. has a parent company out of New Jersey, Avaya Inc. which doesn't understand the Federal model of our business and as such it often becomes difficult to plead our case why our client is so different, often difficult and why we have a need for specialized experienced employees that cost far more than they would prefer. They also have the habit of eliminating positions without cause once they feel their usefulness is no longer necessary instead of attempting to place them, thankfully Avaya Gov. HR intervenes the best they can. Just something to be aware of going

    I worked at Avaya Government Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Excellent Team Leads and technical staff
    - Very good business development executives

    Cons

    - Weakening trust in senior/executive management structure
    - Program Managers are over-tasked by too much corporate administriva (i.e., recruiting, HR, security, A/P) that conflicts with client contractual priorities
    - Weakening executive management support for services-side business development versus the product/maintenance-side of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See above 'Cons'
