is downsizing

Pros

Company is under attack from Cisco and Microsoft as well as new technology firms putting telephony into the cloud. The private money firms that own the company have not been able to relaunch it as a public firm for many years and management has been forced to continue with personnel cutbacks to improve margins. New employees are subject to release and long time employees get to fill those vacancies.

Cons

Tough industry and a management team that has not delivered spells trouble and continued downsizing. Think hard before joining this firm.

    Pros

    Books are cooked as to not pay employees because the company did not make their financials but then they spend millions or a billion in Nortel's case to purchase other companies, this is wonderful for Avaya.

    Cons

    Vice presidents and above are dysfunctional and clueless.
    Main objective is to layoff American workers and offshore jobs
    Continually outsourcing of jobs
    No bonus year after year
    Radical cut to benefits
    No salary increase year after year
    Constant layoffs
    Huge 6B debt from owners
    No 401K match
    No training
    No money for tools
    No money for office supplies
