    I worked at Avaya Government Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There were no pros that I can think of in terms of the company expect for its too loyal employees.

    Cons

    By far one of the worst companies that I have ever worked for. Leadership could care less of employees. HR was non-existent. At one point no one could call HR and had to email everything. We had ask for permission to purchase printer paper. Corporate would not pay for even coffee. No pay raises unless you threatened to leave the company. No 401k matching. As I said worst company I have ever worked for including the management.

    Good Work Life Balance, Potential to learn more about Avaya Product Line. Good Employee In-Processing Procedure. Good Starting Vacation and Sick time.

    Feels like you are just a number here. Company is extremely focused on profits and will conduct lay offs if contracts are lost. Health Care Benefits are extremely Expensive and coverage is minimal.

    Pros

    great team of skills and expertise in the ranks, people willing to help each other and share skills to make things happen.

    I worked at Avaya Government Solutions for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexibility of work and duty assignments

    Cons

    Poor communication regarding government contracts, and lots of uncertainty around contract renewal. Associates whose jobs were in the balance or negatively impacted by contract renewal terms or contract loss were often not informed until the last minute, which shows very little regard for the workforce or the rank and file.

    I worked at Avaya Government Solutions

    Pros

    I can't think of too many pros.

    Cons

    The contract I was on only went under Avaya for a couple of years. Fortunately the contract I was on was bought out by a better company. In that time I was with Avaya they took away as many benefits as possible for savings...no more bonuses or yearly raises. No matching 401K plans, Health Insurance plans were bad compared to what other companies offer. If there's a way to cut cost they will find it. They are all about profit, not employee satisfaction.
