I worked at Avaya Government Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The people are great to work with. Corporate tends to leave the individual contracts alone to work with clients as needed in my experience.

Cons

There seems to be a focus on short term profit. Since buying Nortel they downsize at every opportunity. Avaya HQ interferes a lot with Avaya Government as they don't seem to understand how the government contracting world works. Benefits are lacking, they recently got rid of their student compensation plan. The pay is generally poor. All of this combined makes morale difficult. If not for the efforts of individual teams there would be no morale to speak of.

Advice to Management

Listen to your experienced subordinates.

    I worked at Avaya Government Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people who I had the pleasure of working with were genuinely good people at their core. HR addressed any/all concerns I had with urgency, sincerity and made me feel like a valued employee. My contributions were rewarded with frequent bonuses, awards and teleworking days.

    Cons

    Avaya Gov. has a parent company out of New Jersey, Avaya Inc. which doesn't understand the Federal model of our business and as such it often becomes difficult to plead our case why our client is so different, often difficult and why we have a need for specialized experienced employees that cost far more than they would prefer. They also have the habit of eliminating positions without cause once they feel their usefulness is no longer necessary instead of attempting to place them, thankfully Avaya Gov. HR intervenes the best they can. Just something to be aware of going
