    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Avaya for more than a year

    Pros

    Awesome and supportive work colleagues. Some interesting technologies. Flexible working arrangements. A good place to learn communications and contact center technologies.

    Cons

    Distinct lack of vision from Headquarters. Headquarters thinks the the world thinks and works like Americans do. Distinct lack of product alignment and evolution. Product Houses can not respond quick enough to genuine customer requests. Not nimble enough for the modern client environment. Expect major redundancies every 18-24 months. No Stability in local or regional senior management it has changed every 18 months. Constant erosion of client base in ANZ. Internal systems are a nightmare to navigate and deal with. Internal politics are ridiculous. A ridiculous number of contact center technologies. Demo environments are a joke. Commision systems are incomprehensible.
