    I worked at Avaya (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Avaya has a great work culture, flexible work hours and a lot of freedom. Also, the starting package is pretty rewarding along with good food available in the canteen as well as a really good office location.

    Cons

    As an intern, the time invested by the mentors isn't much as they have a lot of work to do. A lot of free time is available and it would be really helpful if it's made good use of.

    Advice to Management

    I would request the management to focus more on the interns working there as they have no prior work experience and need to be guided all along the duration of their internship.
