Company's change in direction
Call Center Supervisor (Former Employee), Highlands Ranch, CODecember 10, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: continued out sourcing has made it an unstable place to work
Was once a great company to work for but do to out sourcing and change in company direction has become a dead end company to work for. With no training and little room for advancement has become a place to be from and for going to.

System Support Specialist (Former Employee), Highlands Ranch, COSeptember 9, 2013
Pros: the company compensated and offered great benefits to their employees.
Cons: the company lowered head count to reduce expenses, rather than pursue organic growth of the business.
I would take 20 to 30 customer calls during a shift. I would handle a variety of requests and help other associates handle their calls, when they came across a request they did not know the answer or methods available, to complete the request.

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee), Westminster, ColoradoAugust 19, 2013
You never know what a new day will bring. The work is interesting, management manages up, but not down. It's all politics and it gets in the way of productivity and quality.

Challenging and exciting
Services Account Manager III (Current Employee), Greater Chicago Area, ILJuly 9, 2013
Pros: comp plan accelarators
Cons: hours
Avaya continues to deliver exciting new products and services to market in support of Unified Communications and Collaboration and Contact Center. The environment is exciting and electric and provides new challenges in terms of professional growth, customer problem solving and the ability to navigate the competitive field.

The hardest part of working – more... at Avaya is staying ahead of competitors who have more feet embedded within accounts. Overcoming the "Avaya as dial-tone" means being sharper about being able to describe the Avaya value proposition and position Avaya at the correct customer levels. Success depends highly upon the creativity of the employees and the ability to think outside of the box.

The most enjoyable part of the job is opening a customer's eyes to not only what is possible with communications but what is available today from Avaya. Support for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is a critical conversation that every employee needs to have with every customer. Video is also key to success and the ability to penetrate deeper and wider into customer environments. – less
