Summer Internship

Former Employee - Software Engineer
Former Employee - Software Engineer

I worked at Avaya as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Interesting work, got to work with interesting things that I would not have experienced from school. Manager was friendly and willing to help.

Cons

Total work for over the summer could have been completed in under a month. Very little ramp up to what I was doing; thrown into the shark pool.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep your interns busy, otherwise you are just wasting your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the tough decisions to get he company to it's fighting weight and start moving forward. Set a clear direction and accelerate change, we can't survive if we continue to act like a company that is larger than we really are.
