A very doubtful future

Product Manager (Current Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I have been working at Avaya full-time for more than a year

ProsExcellent people who have a great deal of expertise and professional capability across all functional areas.
Base salary is competitive, though bonus payments, - tied to business results- are rarely qualified for.

ConsNo long term vision of what the company wants to be or achieve. Immediate focus is on achieving a string of profitable quarters in readiness for a IPO and very little else. Cost cutting in the form of staff layoffs is occurring at the end of every Quarter leaving less do do the same amount of work.
Significant turn-over at senior levels leading to lack of consistent direction.
Very hierarchical structure with little to no empowerment to make decisions at lower levels.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
