Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Look elsewhere."

What don't you like about working at Avaya?

"The upper management is too set in its ways. Even when there is a demonstrably better way of doing things, you are shot down immediately. Higher-ups have said that software development hasn't changed in 30 years. It's driving down quality and preventing this company from being all it can be."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I suggest less focus on turf wars, and more focus on the war to win customers. Axing money makers to preserve failures is not a long winning plan."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Channel is the key to success; base your responses on that."

What don't you like about working at Avaya?

"The future of Avaya is questionable. It went for public to private, pending IPO. The legacy of ATT and Lucent is history. R&D is not adequate. New products are missing and they just have enhanced products. The acquisition of Nortel is questionable."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Management needs to become an innovator. Stop fighting with your channels. Let the channels sell support rather than Avaya having this exclusive."
