Negative work environment, management isolated from workers and indifferent to work load, and always looking to cut benefits/compensation.
Pros: Good place to work in early 2000's
Cons: Most negative work environment I ever encountered
Avaya once was a great place to work, but since the private acquisition by SilverLake Partners, it's gone downhill in a big way.
No focus on employee career development, continually looking to reduce benefits, compensation. During 2007-2009 management took every opportunity to cutoff 401-k contributions and raise premiums on healthcare benefits. No bonuses or pay raises for most employees for many years.
Even as 2013/2014 saw the U.S. economy rebounding, Avaya was still in reduction mode--"shrinking to success."
I would NOT recommend Avaya as a place for anyone to consider working at, at least for any length of time--loyalty is a one-way road there, and it ISN'T from the company to it's employees.
