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

    Pros

    ABSOLUTELY none! Unrealistic quotas and shrinking marketshare. Fact--- Company is already technically already bankrupt.

    Cons

    Field sales wakeup alone everyday with unrealistic quotas with the worst industry channel.. All channel managers are directed to do all these bogus activities that DO NOT equate to selling and more towards making Channel leadership look good when presenting upwards. Synergy between channel and sales team is nonexistent yet channel leadership keeps presenting upwards all these bogus activities and programs as successful endeavors.

    Advice to Management

    Measure actual channel NEW business sales and hold your channel leadership and CAMs accountable for sales and not bogus activities leading to nothing.

    I have been working at Avaya full-time

    Pros

    Process driven
    Umpteen learning opportunities and new products
    relaxed work atmosphere.

    Cons

    )- Inefficient managers who doesnt understand people management and why people is important.
    - All is well and great except except when it comes to salary and promotion eventhough you have demonstarted excellence, Everything is at the discretion .of manager.
    - Not a people driven company anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Please appoint sensible managers who are not just qualified.They fail miserably when tackling difficult situations. Realize who has the true potential and retain top talent . Relative rating system is becoming more political and solely at the discretion of managers who isnt able to justify.
