No opinion of CEO

I worked at Avaya full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It is difficult to list any pros due to what is happening to the company now and since it became privately owned. Other than what I stated, they have great products.

Cons

Management only care about their careers. Do as I say not as I do culture. Pushing work off to other groups was the mantra of my managers when we were supposed to do the work for the client. Deceiving number crunchers by work that was never done. This was my manager not the company in whole.

Advice to Management

You should listen to the data regarding the yearky reviews.
