    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.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication

    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.
