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

    Quickly heading in Nortels footsteps

    Cons

    No bonus, no salary increase, furloughs again, closing offices all over the country, no office supplies (none), does this paint the picture of Avaya?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the customers you still have before you loose them all to Cisco. Your customers want service not self service and lip service.
