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

    Pros

    Fellow employees were awesome to work with. Enjoyed the technology. Was able to work from home.

    Cons

    Immediate management was out-of-touch with their team. Seemed to just go through the motions; follow metrics without taking time to engage in details. When it came time for a head-count layoff, I was simply read to from a pre-written email. No empathy. No connection.
