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

Pros

Long term associates knowledge of the business
Strong Services business
Good Products though roadmaps unclear

Cons

Transient Senior Leadership - too focused on the next outside Exec who doesn't know the communications industry let alone the business - mucks up their patch and leaves 1-2 years later
Lack of trust in long term associates who have performed and can turn around the business
No incentives to stay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get back to basics - listen to customers, create desirable roadmaps linked to growth/profitability, reinvest in current/long term associates to turnaround our business

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great team members and immediate management. Great technology. Day to day job is fun and interesting.

    Cons

    Senior management has no loyalty downward. No one is appreciated. Compensation plan is designed to limit earning ability. Company never has employees interest in mind from a compensation standpoint. No raises in the US. Benefits keep getting worse. Mid-level managers and above all 'manage up'. No one cares about the day to day happenings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what really happens at the field level.

    Pros

    Good culture and surrounded by smart people. Employed the best of the breed technologies to develop the products and hence it was always a good learning experience.

    Cons

    Top management kept changing and lost focus on the projects that were started by the earlier management team and hence it was hard to compete with other companies int he market with reduced focus in execution
