I have been working at Avaya full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

A lot to learn, supportive immediate management. Work load is high but it helps you learn managing tough situations.

Cons

No clarity on long term vision. Cost cutting and layoffs has dampened the spirit.
Future is extremely uncertain.

    I worked at Avaya full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people, good opportunity to climb corporate ladder. Get dropped in the deep end fast.

    Cons

    Management is a swinging door. Constantly changing vision statements. Can't keep top executives. No training or support for younger people. No tuition assistance. Very low moral there, a ton of attrition and ill feelings towards management. Bonuses are a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not knowledgeable enough to advise those in such high positions for the most part, but they must realize the potential of human capital and how short-termism will fail.

    A good company with good solutions but tough times and management instability have made it a very tough place to work.

    I have been working at Avaya full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Avaya has great solutions with some advantages in the marketplace and a loyal customer base. There are some really smart people at Avaya. You can learn a great deal and develop knowledge and skills that are valuable in the industry.

    Cons

    Too many management changes over too short a period have led to Avaya being a very tough place to work. Strategy and priorities are changing too often. Resources are too thin for the current scope of business and commitments. Avaya's private equity sponsors are managing Avaya for the short-term and compromising long term prospects.
