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

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 Management

    Not worth the time, they won't listen


  2. Downward Spiral

    Pros

    The compensation is good. The products are good as well.

    Cons

    The culture has become much more cutthroat. It used to be that everyone put the best interest of the company before themselves. Sadly, since going private, it has become quite the opposite i.e. very territorial and political. Work life balance continues to degrade as people leave the company with little to no opportunity to replace them. Tons of opportunity to improve, unfortunately those opportunities are often squandered.
