Former Employee - Sales Support

I worked at Avaya full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Pay ranges for the jobs is great
Ability to be an individual contributor and have a "manager" title
co-workers and your immediate team normally make the job enjoyable and rewarding
Products and services cutting edge and make one proud
Information easy to access - internal portal
Immediate manager cared about me and my success
Allowed for remote working - I never had to go to an office

Cons

During business downturns they just let good skilled people go - never help them find other positions in the company. HR seems only geared to hiring and firing nothing in between
Top management told us when we went private we were going to invest for the future, not sure that has held up that way - seem to short sighted.
Still pretty siloed among different groups - not much cross sharing of information and skills
Hard to move around inside the company
Need to move their technology to the average worker
Seemed to always find a way to not pay bonuses at the level promised

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to keep good people when their job is cut...helps morale of those left behind
Be open about the truth when big changes occur helps everyone to understand and move on
