EC considering split of UC and CC business for company auction. Will be interesting to see how this turns out.
I get it. Believe me. I was an Avaya tech once. You can't beat them so you either join them or find another job. Which is what I did. I was fed up with working with a bunch of folks who couldn't care less about the company, or the customers, or even... — read more
What's mind boggling to me is that we have men who have been with this company over 40 years and are being offered 2 years salary to retire and don't, these technicians like thinker said sit in dedicated accounts and collect a hefty paycheck and have... — read more
I gave interview for pune location. HR said I am selected but hiring is on hold. Is there something serious problem with the company. Should I choose to join Avaya or not?
Here is the rumor. Since we all know technicians do absolutely nothing all day the company is hiring an outside firm to go over company vehicle gps reports and location on company cell phones. Thus will enable the company legally to fire associates... — read more

Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. Just think why your beloved leader is leaving after all having such a good position already. He surely knows that disaster is on the way sooner or later. How do... — read more
We always have attrition, but what's been happening in the last several weeks if significantly above anything we've seen so far at our location. What could be the cause of it? The company is neither better nor worse than it has been in the past year... — read more
The union message for Avaya Cwa 1104 has not been charged since January 20th 2017. How is this possible, what kind of Union do we have. No wonder Avaya does number 2 all over us we are weak and ripe for the taking. Its not my style to call in sick, i... — read more

It has happened to me before to take a job and then find it was completely different deal from what I expected. I really don't want something like that to happen to me again. Any ideas on how to get a sense of work environment at a new place of work... — read more
Can we get competitive salary in other companies? Is it worth to stay at Avaya after hearing auction news? I don't know it is good or bad for Avaya but for employees these kind of changes has always been disaster.
So far nothing, at least nothing that I've heard off. Since it's nearly the end of the month, does that mean that rumor turned out to be exactly that - just a rumor? Or should I be worried about what might happen this week?
I'm done waiting for Avaya to lay me off or fire me (something else they've started doing more frequently.) I'm leaving this place and never intend to look back. i can't tell you what relief I felt when I finally made this decision. My advice to... — read more
Is Avaya really doing auction.? or it was hoax marketing gimmick to increase shares price.

Why Avaya Employees are not happy with their work? I see so much negativity across the floor at Pune office. Every other person I meet wants to get hold of any new opportunity outside Avaya as soon as possible. This is extremely bad culture.
