    Pros

    surrounded by great people, they are very bright, they have vast domain experience, products are generally well thought out

    Cons

    management turnover is high, HR is dedicated to winnowing benefits and people, our new R&D facility looks to a return to wack-a-mole cubes

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

    Pros

    Some individual contributors and a few managers care about the quality of the products and are able do do a good job.

    Cons

    Most of the people seem to be very low performers, a bit like a retirement home.
    The owners of the company seem to be shaping it for resale, not success.

    Advice to Management

    If you are good, unfortunately you should look for another company. I don't think that there are enough people that care about the product to succeed.
