Topics regarding layoffs at Avaya
In all layoff rumors I could relate some truth as number may be different but news was true. It feels like everyone will face it one day. Its just the queue and one can be ahead of others that will be in days.
Nonetheless, and personally speaking, the only announcement that mattered to me this week was what Nidal said on his call yesterday: he is staying! I couldn't care less about what happens to KJK, Dave, and the other goons running this sinking ship. I... read more

Reports coming from multiple sources that Avaya has entered and agreement with Xirus to sell off the Data division. Also hearing IP Office platform has been sold. Not sure when this will be announced.
With the looming debt owed in 2017 and the revenues declining, i don't see Avaya pulling out of this nose dive. That said there's a lot of customers that will be very worried about Avaya's health. Does that mean someone will buy a piece or the whole... read more
Everyone should expect more and more layoffs. Find me one company that has so many changes in upper management - starting with senior VPs and C-level folks - this prevents initiatives/strategies from materializing, one person starts things and soon... read more

I was laid off this week. Have them 10 years and the might give me 4 weeks. 10 years of loyalty ends in 2 minute conversation. I pray this company implodes. It's going to like the titanic. So many people working on dead products never get laid off... read more
Avaya is looking to get rid of 2,000 - 2,500 people. Everyone with a minimum 2 years service will be asked to leave with a few weeks salary. This is definitely a sinking ship. Sad part is Kevin Kennedy, Jim Chirico, and others are still sucking... read more
A lot of US workers were laid off this week. Anyone have any numbers or more information? Have any other locations been affected? Of course bad executive decisions seem to lead to "cost-saving measures"...i.e. Layoffs. When will companies learn that... read more
Avaya has been laying off big numbers at the Thornton RnD location ... round one was in Sept and round two is going on now ... some groups reduced by 50%
Avaya might as well shut down all operations in 2014 - things are not developing well for us and our workers are overworked and underpaid. I am not even sure why we work here at all. I think we'll have downsizing in both 2014 and 2015 and you'll see... read more
