    I worked at Avaya full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The teams are great. Lots of friendly, helpful people. Day-to-day work is awesome. A good balance of work to life as well. Excellent performance is rewarded.

    Cons

    There is poor leadership from top level executives. It doesn't seem like there is a clear plan. Companies are acquired and then slowly their products are discontinued. There have been many layoffs recently.

    Great people from the middle down. Dead from the middle up.

    Pros

    Great technology and flexibility in working from home.

    Cons

    All decisions for the last 3 years were made to make the quarterly numbers look as good as possible in support of an IPO, but that didn't happen. Now leadership has to figure out how to salvage the business after all the incompetence, neglect, and short sighted focus on selling a sinking ship to the public. Creative thinking only goes as far as another round of layoffs. Acquired technology is slowly killed off even when it's more advanced and evolved than the alternatives. There are more senior level employees that manage customer escalations than there are engineers to solve the issues and prevent the escalations. Avaya continues to trend down as Cisco contiues to climb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and don't take all the money with you.
