    I have been working at Avaya full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good working culture
    Work life balance, work from home is easy and convenient
    Employee friendly tax and salary structure
    Professional treatment and fair opportunity, barring few rusted minds who came from Lucent and do nothing

    Cons

    Working late nights and synch up with US teams
    Frequent layoffs - no job guarantee
    Company is making losses year after year, affecting the overall progress and growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retaining talent should be the focus rather than ignoring them by laying off.
    Restructuring, reorganization, strategy and planning should not be a monthly exercise - it shows lack of planning

    I have been working at Avaya full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent people who have a great deal of expertise and professional capability across all functional areas.
    Base salary is competitive, though bonus payments, - tied to business results- are rarely qualified for.

    Cons

    No long term vision of what the company wants to be or achieve. Immediate focus is on achieving a string of profitable quarters in readiness for a IPO and very little else. Cost cutting in the form of staff layoffs is occurring at the end of every Quarter leaving less do do the same amount of work.
    Significant turn-over at senior levels leading to lack of consistent direction.
    Very hierarchical structure with little to no empowerment to make decisions at lower levels.
