Will this company be around in a few years?

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Westminster, CO

I have been working at Avaya full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVery good engineering talent, and some great people to work with.
Salary is acceptable.

ConsCompany is clueless when it comes to actually developing a product the user will want.
Spend all your time emailing, and on calls since teams are spread all over the world.
Layoff's all the time. They just decimate the engineering staff every once in a while.
Horrible earnings that makes the companies longevity questionable.

Advice to Senior ManagementPerhaps management should try to develop products customers may actually want and like. Maybe the focus should be on building a profitable company and not acquiring unsuccessful ones.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
