This was a difficult company to work for due to the fact that when I joined it had just merged with Nortel. This made for a difficult transition in determining the workplace culture

My 7 years tenure at Avaya Government Solutions was a blast. I had work tasks that challenged my ability to apply critical thinking in defining tactical and strategic solutions.

he wood-panelled tailgate of the 1972 Oldsmobile station wagon dangled open like a broken jaw, making a wobbly bench on which four kids could sit, eight legs swinging. Every Sunday morning, long before dawn, we’d get yanked out of bed to stuff the car’s way-back with stacks of twine-tied newspapers, clamber onto the tailgate, cut the twine with my mother’s sewing scissors, and ride around town, bouncing along on that bench, while my father shouted out orders from the driver’s seat. “Watch out for the dog!” he’d holler between draws on his pipe. “Inside the screen door!” “Mailbox!” As the car crept along, never stopping, we’d each grab a paper and dash in the dark across icy driveways or dew-drunk grass, crashing, seasonally, into unexpected snowmen. “Back porch!” “Money under the mat!” He kept a list, scrawled on the back of an envelope, taped to the dashboard: the Accounts. “They owe three weeks!” He did

Great company, collaborative team. Working in the DC area is the only negative. Expensive cost of living and the commute is long no matter how close you are to the office location.

My direct surpervisor is a great guy to work for. He has been very supportive. Company communications are passed along very well among everyone. Team work is the practice around here.

Good pay but long hours and a lot of travel. Past paced with constant changes; management was a revolving door with very limited leadership qualities or understanding of the business requirements. The company eventually went bankrupt.
Pros
Excellent Pay
Cons
Long hours

Company does not protect its employees or help them find other work within the company. Some managers ok. Our prime was a tool and did not know what he was doing.

Very much enjoyed the customer interface, design work and interaction with sales team. Typical day included customer meetings, both face to face and conference calls. Meetings would define customer challenges and design criteria. My responsibility included discovery, design, pricing and solution presentation. Loved the work. I took the retirement package but desire to return to the job.
Pros
Great sales team and products
Cons
Rumors of layoff and company instability

good people, good learning with technologies and security within the DOD environment. I don't believe this company is around anymore. I believe they were bought out by Cambridge.

It was no fun to work with the team since everyone is just working. The hardest of the job in my team was unfair from manager. Overall, it's just OK .

I enjoyed working with Avaya Federal Solutions team which was a subset business unit of the larger Avaya corporation. The work was challenging and fulfilling. Little by little the corporation took away 401k matching and accrued vacation days.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
No 401k matching

Exactly as stated in summary title. Management doesn't care about the employees. To be transparent, I worked for this company when it was known as Nortel Government Solutions. So perhaps the name change and whatever other changes came with it changed the culture as well. But when I left, I was unhappy with the zero consideration my employers had towards me expanding my family.

My typical day at work was gathering requirements, preparing requirement document and communicating with developers.

I learned how to create/update different requirement documents.


Management was helpful.


My co-workers were friendly.


The hardest part of the job was closing the gap between the users requirement and the developers understanding.


The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new applications.
