      Sep 7, 2021 - Senior Manager

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people and a few left that came from the original spin from AT&T to Lucent to Avaya.

      Cons

      Long hours with no bonuses and very rare salary increases make it very hard to stay motivated. Probably best not to view this as a long term opportunity.

      Aug 10, 2021 - Named Account Manager II in Saint Louis, MO

      Pros

      Becoming an industry-leading cloud company practically overnight. Recognizable brand, as more than 90% of the Fortune 100 are Avaya customers. Decent pay, flexible environment.

      Cons

      Internal processes will be the death of the company. Senior leadership is extremely disconnected from the field. Marketing changes names of products in portfolio too often, making it difficult to build any brand around the product.
