Current Employee - Manager

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

Pros

Very nice, capable, and talented co-workers, senior managers, and directors. Good CEO that communicates with the company well. Relatively well paying.

Cons

Bonus structure has thresholds almost impossible to attain so bonuses are almost non-existent. Constantly rotating C-level positions causes the department I am in to lurch in different directions every 18 months (we have had 3 C-level VP's in the 4 yrs I have been with the company). Draconian cost cutting on expenses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire competent C-level VP's and stick with them. Hire VP's that treat employees well instead of acting like children throwing a tantrum when they don't get what they want.
