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 Management

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.

    Company has no ability to deliver. All innovative software is complete marketing hype.

    Pros

    There are some very bright people working at Avaya. Unfortunately, they are all being used and when they figure out what is going on, they all leave.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Crooked organization.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a new CEO and executive team.

  2. rewarding career, concern about future

    Pros

    Exciting technologies, great growth potential. Very strong services business. significant market share in all portfolios. Viewed as an industry leader by customers, analysts and consultants.

    Cons

    lack true solutions based view of the industry, inability to truly understand holistic customer needs. Maniacal focus on EBITDA. company acts as if it's "profits before people"

    Advice to Management

    Evolve or get left behind. Don't forget your roots, but don't sacrifice the future to save today.
