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

Pros

Avaya is a great place to get exposed to the business world - it has a huge customer based and a solid array of products - both software and hardware. Its a company in transformation and there is a lot to learn in the process.
Formidable leader in the Unified Communication space with lot of emphasis on research & technology.
Excellent work-life balance.

Cons

Lot of legacy software platforms (baggage) makes execution slow.
Too slow to move to the SaaS model - threatens its leadership position.
Thinly spread across the globe slows down execution. Meetings at 6am in the morning to accomodate various time-zones.
No stock options given.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the Avaya brand "cool".
Get a clear vision to go after the SaaS opportunity and execute with speed.
End of Life legacy products and transition to next generation products quickly.

    Pros

    Good salary, industry leader in many segments, strong history, people really care to do the right thing

    Cons

    Executive leadership seems a bit lost. Bonuses are few, far between and not very impressive. "Do more with less" is being taken to new heights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what to focus on and do it well, you don't have the resources to be everything to everybody.
