I worked at Avaya full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The best things about working at Avaya were the people who typically had a can do attitude and the products and solutions were regularly the highest regarded in the industry.

Cons

Work life balance was not a concern for management, nor was career progression or professional development of employees. The other biggest dings on Avaya were that the leadership and corporate strategy which always seemed to be a step behind major competitors and the lack of investment in marketing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more proactive in career development and progression planning and stop recycling certain folks into leadership positions in other parts of the business.

    I have been working at Avaya full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. Good work life balance. No Stress.
    2. Compensation is market competitive given it operates in a stagnant industry
    3. The SVPs are industry stalwarts , but they have not been able to recreate the past magic.

    Cons

    1. Who you know in the company is more important than what you know.
    2. Senior Manager to Senior Director level is clueless and staying back because they cant find a job elsewhere.
    3. The India operations is incredibly low quality. The focus is on cost rather than quality.
    4. Non revenue making groups have bloated capacity - eg NMS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Improve per employee productivity.
    2. Fire all Nortel/Avaya Manager/Director/VP who have been in the company for more than 5 years. They are responsible for running this company aground. Please show accountability.

    Great people and technology, excellent customer base, reasonable flexibility for work at home options; a track record of successfully implementing complex solutions

    Cons

    Many changes due to management shifts and Private Equity ownership has created disruption for employees and customers which is negatively impacting loyalty to the brand
