I worked at Avaya full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I worked with fantastic people that loved what they did and how they serve their customers.

Cons

The company took no concern with results or how you reached your targets, they were strictly concerns with where you were located and getting as much as possible out of you....no family/life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think of your people as an asset, not a liability.

  1. All in all, good benefits and work-life balance. Horrible management of the company and products.

    I worked at Avaya full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I liked most of the people I worked with, the flexibility of the work, and the salary and benefits. The work was fairly interesting and there were opportunities to pursue expanding your skill levels.

    Cons

    Because of the lack of good management of the company and product lines, Avaya has not remained competitive in the marketplace. They are flush with patents and the opportunity to do great research but have missed those opportunities in search of cash.They are run by a firm that is only concerned with cash and then selling the company for the cash and stripping it.

    Pros

    Good base salary, there were some great leaders but they are all gone

    Cons

    Those who survived the Nortel failure through political vs. business expertise are basically all that's left. The business is run on emotion and self promotion vs fact and fiscal responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not worth the time, they won't listen
