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

Pros

Strong team to work with in my geography. Hard work yields results and recognition. Can do pretty much what you want to develop your career and experience. Good immediate leadership.

Cons

Frequent executive changes, product roadmap changes, product management changes. Back office processes need to be fixed, everyone should be working with the same goal in mind - customer satisfaction and getting things done. Services should worry about serving the customer and las about closing their tickets and incorrect records showing no support.

Advice to Management

Fix internal processes if you really want to move this company forward. Develop easily digestible product roadmap and stick to it.

    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.

    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
