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

Pros

Opportunity to learn/employ new technologies. Interesting/challenging work. Engaged first/second level managers and coworkers. In general, good inter-team cooperation. Worldwide, many very technically astute employees. Above average benefits.

Cons

Too much reliance on old-technology products, with new product development geared toward sustaining the golden goose. Management sometimes makes short-sighted decisions in quest to save a buck (e.g. fragmenting product development team to the extent that it is very difficult for globally dispersed teams to get anything done.).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reject product management bloated product feature sets that kill time-to-market. Continue townhall meetings to keep employees informed.
