Pros

Some of the best people you will ever work with.

Cons

Company constantly misses revenue expectations so people are always nervous. Too many lay-offs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a better sales team and ensure that your products are what the market wants not what you think is right!

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

    Pros

    people are dedicated and want to do a good job
    office environment is okay

    Cons

    very heavy workload
    management focused on chasing quarterly performance at the risk of hurting company's long term viability
    lack of IT investment/integration affects ability to perform tasks efficiently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    convince investors to allow time to develop a viable long term strategy; postpone dreams of an IPO
    invest in your people - they are your most valuable resource
    you cannot be "best in class" with employee to sales ratio if you do not invest in IT and other systems/processes to streamline workload.
