Current Employee - Consultant in Detroit, MI
Current Employee - Consultant in Detroit, MI

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

Pros

It could be worse, you could be in a concentration camp.

Cons

Three years rnaked by Avaya as a top performer, never one bonus. Avaya always has reasons for not paying bonuses. In two years, with forced unpaid furlough of two weeks, I didn't even earn my base salary. The HR department was outsourced to India, so having anything done as an employee is impossible. Highly political organization with little room for advancement due to constant layoffs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Only work here if you have no other alternative, The firm is $7 billion in debt, it isn't IPO'ing anytime soon. The entire senior management staff needs the boot, then a sale to a hardware manufacturer.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps 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.
