    Pros

    Good people at the mid- and lower levels trying do the right thing.

    Cons

    Executives are a bunch of horse's patoots and the customers know it. Kennedy's all hands employee calls are a joke...bragging about how he "accidentally" spent $25,000 on a cashmere robe for his wife...this from a guy whose company nickels and dimes his employees. Anyhow, the antiquated internal systems waste huge amounts of time and are killing the staff. With all the lay-offs its just getting worse. Living off of run-rate stuff won't last much longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire. And don't take all the money with you. And stop hiring executives and giving them 6 months to mastermind a "turn-around", then firing them when they can't do it and giving them a bucket of money to leave.

    I have been working at Avaya full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Getting to work with cutting edge technology, very flexible on telecommuting, great people - very knowledgable and very helpful, great training opportunities, large company so if you're laid off you can easily find another group to work for, decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Pay/bonus tied to company performance but company performance is perennially sub-par so...no bonuses and 1.5% raises are the norm. Favorite cost cutting measure seems to be laying people off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are the key to success. It doesn't matter how great the product is if the people necessary to engineer it, service it and sell it have either been laid off or are waiting their turn. We have great products and great people - give us some reason to be excited about Avaya again.
