    Building is getting a bit dated, but they try to keep it up to spec as best they can. Can be a challenge trying to keep up with ever changing technologies

    Pros

    Work from home, cell phone,

    Cons

    Honestly, I can’t wait until after the pandemic to leave. This company’s management is equivalent to a grade 12 thesis project. Every leader at Avaya should be looked into and their Amex should be audited, starting from the top. No one knows about Avaya, the company has no marketing no brand awareness, partners hate us. No one enjoys working here and everyone here is here because they’re waiting to retire and can’t leave because of pension. It is the most toxic environment I’ve ever been in. Avaya is not a leader in telephone and management has no idea what they’re doing.
