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

Pros

A lot to learn, supportive immediate management. Work load is high but it helps you learn managing tough situations.

Cons

No clarity on long term vision. Cost cutting and layoffs has dampened the spirit.
Future is extremely uncertain.

    Summer Internship

    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.

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

    Pros

    Good group of people, interesting technology, flexible work arrangements. Possible bright future if the company survives the current economic turmoil.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs, inconsistent message from leadership. uncertain future. Lack of investment in the core components of the company.

    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.
