    Pros

    Virtual Office - worked from home. Allowed me to be self-directed with very remote management. Able to set my own hours as long as the work was done.

    Very flexible with time off and family duties. Never ran into an issue with that at all.

    Cons

    Easy to get caught in projects out on a limb, and hard to transfer laterally within Avaya.

    Going through headcount trimming now that they acquired NES. A lot of cuts are into the bone and people are having a hard time doing their jobs.

    Even though I got praised for my performance, I never got a monetary award from those doing the praising, even though there was a system set up to do that. I gave several monetary awards to those whose work I appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you need to do to keep the business running. I'd like to say it would be nice if you could look for transitions for employees before you lay them off, but I understand it's part of business these days.
