    Pros

    If you are lucky enough to be in a union job, they provide adequate protect from whatever is the senior leadership's passing fancy.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, minimum 60+ hour work week required of non-union employees. The company is valued at about half that which the current owners paid for it, extreme cost cutting is rampant which has destroyed any culture that may have once existed. There is no career path. Avaya is currently a stepping stone for senior leaders. They get in, do their time then get out as fast as possible. Avaya is currently a hot potato that no one wants to be left holding once it finally dies.

    There is a difference between being lean and neglecting your customers while abusing your employees.

    Pros

    Compensation is very well against its peers.

    Cons

    Poor Sr Management, Poor Middle Management. The company works everyday to figure out its direction. There is a lot of buddy buddy promotions handed out to surround yourself with yes people. The company is going nowhere fast spending capital on M&A and not intergrating it into the operation to gain the savings. This is a little Nortel and will see its fall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the talent you hire. Keep an open mind on issue and understand that you may not know it all and its ok. Surround yourself with folks that will push and challenge you. Be willing to think outside of the box. People dont just want the money you need to provide a working enviroment where people feel like they are wanted and needed. Too many Chiefs and no Indians left to do the work.
