    Pros

    Great culture and environment. Seems that everyone is committed to the success of individuals and the business across teams, with a supportive environment. Provides ability to move to other points in the business or receive promotions into any area of the company. Overall employees seem positive and optimistic. Fast paced, with more than ample recognition and reward for efforts. Clearly defined goals and objectives provide employees with a high level of ability to make and act on independent decisions.

    Cons

    Turbulence in the industry and economy make this a challenging place to work. Uncertainty with the future affects morale to a degree.

    Advice to Management

    Continue employee communications and focus on building the business.

    Pros

    Its just a good company. The pay is fair and balanced and the benefits can not be beat! This is the best employer I have had so far and I intend to continue working for them for as long as I can.

    Cons

    The union and their regulations are a little tricky to get used to, but once you are over that its all down hill from there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep us informed and knowledgeable about the companies direction. So far you're doing an excellent job! Cut back on the unnecessary proceedures that bog down on efficiency and start limiting what the union gets away with and there will be no limit to Avaya's success!
