    Some of the best people you will ever work with.

    Cons

    Company constantly misses revenue expectations so people are always nervous. Too many lay-offs.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better sales team and ensure that your products are what the market wants not what you think is right!

    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.
