I worked at Avaya full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits, salary and bonus plan. The people are the biggest differentiator as the operate as a tight knit family and treat their people well. Good technology but lags in NPI and disruptive innovation. Great flexibility on telecommuting!

Cons

An industry disrupted causing leadership turn over and layoffs

    Pros

    What a wonderful collaborative environment. I am thankful I had the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization and how tragic and criminal it is that this company is being destroyed from the top down.

    Cons

    Management does not care one bit for employees. They have reduced benefits to the point where they are non-existent. They have sold off as many real estate locations as they could, closed multiple whole offices, outsourced as much as possible, forced people to go on extended overseas trips to train their replacements, even leasing out the R&D center without informing employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should be in jail.

    I worked at Avaya as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was offered a lot of leeway in choosing my project and implementing it. I was given a mentor to work with who really was great. Some internship events where we met senior management, etc.

    Cons

    They let a large number of people go while I was there, many of whom had been there for years. I don't think they'll be hiring in the Labs anytime soon. It also broke the continuity, since my supervisor left in the middle, pretty abruptly. Intern events were pretty stilted and not terribly interesting.
