I have been working at Avaya

Pros

Exciting new products and a vision of connectedness that they support; a highly committed and enthusiastic work force who are eager to share their expertise.

Cons

Depending where you are in the company, work-life balance seems to be lacking in the culture; that does seem to vary from business unit to business unit, though.

Advice to Management

A few key hires would help you accelerate time to market

    Pros

    Good compensation. Depending on location/manager possibility to work remotely. Great people (but keep leaving). Growth opportunities - vertically & horizontally.

    Cons

    Constant cuts - now people work for four. Long hours (12 is a norm) are expected. Sr. Mgr and up - weekends are expected. A lot of talk about work-life-balance that just a talk. A lot of people are leaving. Worsening morale. Furloughs. No bonuses. Not a lot of team building activities due to budget cuts. No training - self learn with very short learning curve expected. A lot of activities moved to India- with low quality work that needs to be micro-managed and checked and re-checked while there is a perception that "now you have more time to work on other things". Bought Nortel business and put a lot of it's leadership into current roles - really?? Very top-heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Choose leaders carefully. Cut from the top. If furlough - at least at summer. Realize that productivity improvements can't go forever - people are burning. Can expect the same amount of output with the same quality with so much less people. Acquisitions - re-evaluate assumptions and acquire more carefully.
