I have been working at Avaya full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I've had the opportunity to work in a number of areas of the business and gain skillsets that make me more marketable.

Cons

For the last several years, the mentality of management has been that the employees are lucky to have jobs and so raises and bonuses are not necessary.

    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.
