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

Pros

Books are cooked as to not pay employees because the company did not make their financials but then they spend millions or a billion in Nortel's case to purchase other companies, this is wonderful for Avaya.

Cons

Vice presidents and above are dysfunctional and clueless.
Main objective is to layoff American workers and offshore jobs
Continually outsourcing of jobs
No bonus year after year
Radical cut to benefits
No salary increase year after year
Constant layoffs
Huge 6B debt from owners
No 401K match
No training
No money for tools
No money for office supplies

Advice to Management

Appreciate and listen your employees

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are pretty good. Had the opportunity to work with some great people that really care about doing a good job.

    Cons

    Resources are spread too thin. Many individuals have been asked to do the jobs of two or three people.

    Advice to Management

    Give some deep thought to what you can do to improve morale and make life better for your employees

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

    Pros

    Great technology for a phone company. Best in class Call Centers

    Cons

    Pretends to be very transparent. After the acquisition of Nortel, it was Red vs Blue internally. Management only focused on cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost all morale from the front line workers.
