I have been working at Avaya full-time (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 (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - OK salary
    - Work from home
    - Good people, good technical resources
    - You can work with very big customers and some Avaya products are solid

    Cons

    - Constant layoffs, bad atmosphere, you can't go to work and not think this day it will be my turn to get fired.
    - No clear idea where the company is going, senior management will not communicate clear AT ALL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    clearly the ship is sinking right now.. please stop acting like the customers are the top priority because this is not true, all the tools you give to your employees are clearly not enough to make this happen. Communication from the people on the top is horrible. Invest in your employees.

    Summer Internship

    Former Employee - Software Engineer
    Former Employee - Software Engineer

    I worked at Avaya as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting work, got to work with interesting things that I would not have experienced from school. Manager was friendly and willing to help.

    Cons

    Total work for over the summer could have been completed in under a month. Very little ramp up to what I was doing; thrown into the shark pool.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your interns busy, otherwise you are just wasting your time.
