There were a series of layoffs a few months ago including my manager. Our stock price has plummeted. Today, my theater's Executive VP was let go. Meanwhile, I've been coasting, lost between the cracks of restructuring with no manager to report to... — read more
For superiors, we never do enough and we never try hard enough... Sometimes I wonder what they even want from employees? I did my best and still got criticized for having to get more involved. Realizing there is nothing more I could do I started... — read more

I was part of the March 1 2022 RIF. I had a large pipeline of REAL opportunities. These clients/prospects have reached out to me to see if I have landed a competitor because they don't have anyone from Avaya to support them. Seriously. The RSL is a... — read more

STOP SILENCING US! If any of this is wrong why does Avaya fight to delete so many of these posts? The philosopher George Santayana wrote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Some- one else, forever known as Anonymous... — read more
I’m trying to summarize how many times a manager has broken his promises to us lately. This company makes a variety of promises so that employees keep their side of the deal by doing their job well. Now everyone knows that the company never... — read more
Avaya is very unique in the fact that they are PUBLICLY TRADED yet behave like a small Mom and Pop who only hires friends and family. They do not operate following or PRACTICE any of the guidelines that they are to follow to be approved on NASDAQ. We... — read more
Am I the only one who i disturbed by the lack of safeguards, process or process that allows a in-the-market traded organization to continue without leadership or board of director changes? I do not see any action when there should be action. I dont... — read more

i fortunately have one of the best managers. Very high integrity and good person. Unique that they fit in with leadership as leadership usually cultivates questionable cronies. Manager shared that because of two quarters in a row of missing earnings... — read more
Avaya has been assigned an F rating ('Digging In' status) by Yale School of Management (yalerussianbusinessretreat dot com) because they continue "working with at least 46 partners in Russia".
I hear some rumors circulating, but I don’t know how much of that is true. So many people are leaving here that I don’t know if layoffs make sense at all. Any info on possible cuts is welcome. I expect the worst, but I still hope for the best. The... — read more
By July the organization will likely be unrecognizable. It is the ultimate test for the BOD to actually address the REAL problem with the company that should be soaring due to market opportunity and current market dynamics. The problem is never the... — read more

While Avaya needs to retain solid talent now more than ever, it's just not worth anyone's time to wait for the last lifeboat off of the Titanic. They should have changed board leadership and C Suite a year ago...yet now the everyday employee is who... — read more
What bothers me the most is the disgusting way they are trying to devalue us. They are trying to convince us that we don’t know how to do our jobs so that we would leave on our own and they can hire contractors to replace us. I am constantly... — read more
The front line employees are the ones who perform daily miracles to keep the legacy base from jumping ship. Yet those very same people are who they want gone. They just want to dwindle headcount as much as possible to achieve the EPS target and... — read more
If you are a good leader who works your a-s off and tries to do the right thing they will get rid of you in a heartbeat.
Avaya has ZERO Human Resources or Culture Police to protect employees or the company from cultivating a toxic environment. They actually do the opposite....the PRETEND to have resources by stating in their Published Culture Handbook that employees... — read more
I have been working here for many years and it is sad what this place has become. They used to advocate loyalty but now the most loyal employees are treated the worst. Mediocre people who have almost no experience or enthusiasm for work are... — read more
I used to love working at Avaya but in the past five years or so it has become a completely soulless, sterile company that bends its will to corporate politics and nothing else. It's so obvious to anybody who's been here for longer than that that... — read more
They have zero ethics. They tend to get rid of loyal employees who are not too far off from retirement. They really need to be investigated & a class action lawsuit should be brought against them.
I must admit that all of these comments are so true. A lot of layoffs and terminations can be tied back to employees raising their hands regarding Ethics concerns.The management culture, the reality of the product mix (no cloud...they have been... — read more
My job here is just one big frustration. I never thought I would become a person who just works and doesn’t have time for anything outside of work, but that’s exactly what happened to me here. It's hardly felt until one is on the verge of burnout... — read more

Yes, Avaya gets cheaper labor but at what cost? That labor is cheap for a very good reason and they're replacing good employees with experience and knowledge that's essential to the functioning of this company. I don't even blame the people who're... — read more
Is this good news or should we be preparing for a storm?
I would take my severance money and use it as a starter for a small business. Nothing that has anything to do with what I do right now. I don't want to hold on to the past. I just want to move on and get away from a big company that treats its... — read more
With the stock erasing almost all gains for the year about $1 to go we are back to square one. Seriously we relaunched devconnect and a bit of cpaas as a Hail Mary at GITEX. Really absolutely no innovation that moves the market we all know what comes... — read more
Watching the news around Avaya spaces I see Nvidia is the real backer of the technology. So is Avaya innovating with its 200M+ R&D investment or just bringing 3rd party vendors to the table like Ring Central?
