I worked at Avaya full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Latitude in learning, contributing and lateral movement. Development and high-end engineering is granted autonomy to perform work as the employee sees fit, as long as the work gets done. Very strong support at director and VP levels.

Cons

$2.9B debt, due in 2017 and 2021. Lower engineering tiers are very structured during work hours. Currently in a down-sizing mode.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on long-term success instead of short-term revenues.

    I have been working at Avaya full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Talented, dedicated people willing to work added hours to complete project. Good client focus. Strong salaries comparative.

    Cons

    Constant change in leadership. Company line on why high attrition is sounding like a broken record. Benefits overall are weak, and with every year, benefits (401K, medical, vacation time (now discretionary time off) are worst in class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If leadership churn continues, CEO needs to take a hard look within. Instability at top cannot continue.
