The costs were reasonable but everything was bare minimum and as a result more costs were incurred to keep a moderate coverage plan
Health insurance with 6-8k out of pocket expense
401K match never happens due to poor performance. I worked there over 4 years and maybe was matched twice. Insurance plans aren't that great.
Time off is great - if you are allowed to take it. The level of compensation is poor compared to other companies.
Avaya has always had a great benefits package--but, it has slimmed down in recent years--healthcare was previous paid 100, each year the deductibles are now getting bigger and bigger, but still very good benefits
Health Care is pretty good - not the best I've ever seen, but pretty good.
Healthcare plans are expensive with high deductibles.
Pro: - Discretionary time off instead of fixed paid vacation days is a good thing if you have a manager who does not fuss about DTO and understands your need for it. - 401K match to 3% if the company makes the quarterly EBITDA targets. Avaya is fair about the information given to employees. Con: - Long before Avaya went to chapter 11, the employee benefits have been cut steadily to keep the bottom line looking good. While one can understand why this was done it is a slippery slope and has not been good for employees. - The networking BU was sold the the employees who were retained by the buying company got much better benefits. This shows that Avaya is well below the market accepted level for employee benefits.
Overall, the benefits package is consistent with other companies in the industry.
