I have been working at Avaya full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very good engineering talent, and some great people to work with.
Salary is acceptable.

Cons

Company is clueless when it comes to actually developing a product the user will want.
Spend all your time emailing, and on calls since teams are spread all over the world.
Layoff's all the time. They just decimate the engineering staff every once in a while.
Horrible earnings that makes the companies longevity questionable.

Advice to Management

Perhaps management should try to develop products customers may actually want and like. Maybe the focus should be on building a profitable company and not acquiring unsuccessful ones.

    I worked at Avaya full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    people are dedicated and want to do a good job
    office environment is okay

    Cons

    very heavy workload
    management focused on chasing quarterly performance at the risk of hurting company's long term viability
    lack of IT investment/integration affects ability to perform tasks efficiently

    Advice to Management

    convince investors to allow time to develop a viable long term strategy; postpone dreams of an IPO
    invest in your people - they are your most valuable resource
    you cannot be "best in class" with employee to sales ratio if you do not invest in IT and other systems/processes to streamline workload.
