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

Pros

Opportunity to learn/employ new technologies. Interesting/challenging work. Engaged first/second level managers and coworkers. In general, good inter-team cooperation. Worldwide, many very technically astute employees. Above average benefits.

Cons

Too much reliance on old-technology products, with new product development geared toward sustaining the golden goose. Management sometimes makes short-sighted decisions in quest to save a buck (e.g. fragmenting product development team to the extent that it is very difficult for globally dispersed teams to get anything done.).

Advice to Management

Reject product management bloated product feature sets that kill time-to-market. Continue townhall meetings to keep employees informed.

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

    Pros

    Virtual office for almost every job. Rewards are based on results and not on time spent working. Best in class technology and people practices, three weeks vacation from the start

    Cons

    Too many meetings, not enough time

    "Constantly changing, not in a good way, very short-term mentality, no ability to manage at the C level."
