I worked at Avaya full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Company is under attack from Cisco and Microsoft as well as new technology firms putting telephony into the cloud. The private money firms that own the company have not been able to relaunch it as a public firm for many years and management has been forced to continue with personnel cutbacks to improve margins. New employees are subject to release and long time employees get to fill those vacancies.

Cons

Tough industry and a management team that has not delivered spells trouble and continued downsizing. Think hard before joining this firm.

    I have been working at Avaya full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and comp. Great co-workers who are dedicated. Great products and great company outlook if they can get sales up.

    Cons

    No pay raises or bonuses since in two years. The changes to the 401K match and the new vacation and floating holiday policy have a significant impact on employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Value the employees more through pay raises and bonuses.

    I have been working at Avaya full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Technology Leader. Tight link with customers who are, generally, very happy.

    Cons

    HR BS. They are constantly cutting away at employee benefits. They have artificial employee inclusion programs for highly rated staff, but each month the CEO gets us and tells us different reasons people have been fired. No kidding. He has an all hands meeting every month, and always finds an excuse to mention why he has fired someone either recently or in his past. And the HR organization follows the same caring culture.

    Advice to Management

    Employees first, please.
