Topics regarding layoffs at Avaya
Nothing from management but whispers "great new coming", "reorganisation coming", "increasing revenue" etc etc.... all crap! Real should be saying we haven't a clue what's going on or what will happen please don't resign and get better jobs.
I've been reading these threads for quite some time now and there is a lot of truth on this site, and of course a lot BS as well. What I can tell you from my time at Avaya, what used to be a great company, is no more. This company has been dismantled... read more

I need salary info for Avaya India - do you think that the numbers they show on Glassdoor are reliable?
Atlast I am leaving Avaya. I am very happy. In Pune I was working with the worst management and so called leadership team. Seriously, change the leadership at Pune if Avaya needs to increase the productivity of engineers. The best ones have already... read more

Kevin Kennedy was asked to resign or he choose to resign on his own???
It looks like Avaya will exit protection still carrying a significant debt - that is going to weigh heavily on the company and restrict its ability to use revenue to fund development. The best sales staff in the world would be hard pressed to make... read more

Avaya is even more worthless now than 2 years ago, so now HPE should bite since they don't have to bite off as much. I'm sure they will not assume any outstanding debt from Avaya. With all the executive mice jumping ship, they know they will be cut... read more
Do you have any updates here. It's my understanding that there were no layoffs at Avaya Government Solutions back in 2015 and 2016. I left on my own in 2015 and I cannot complain about anything - it was a good 24 month gig for me - I am hearing that... read more
Time to stop your incessant cackling. Hope you're enjoying the egg on all of your faces.
Has anyone got any idea about how this is going to be done?
I was laid off in april after 37 years, high evaluations, acheivers club, 3 patents etc. i am so shocked that this is still unresolved. Me thinks kevin doesnt want or care if resolved. Honestly this is not rocket science, its corporate business value... read more

Prospective future employers may question the judgement of someone who hangs on at Avaya through this period. If there is the possibility of a large severance package at the end, then you may be able to explain why you stuck around. But if you are in... read more
Certanly not 'work as usual' for a while now. People down the chain are finding it hard to meet customers' demand as 3rd parties decommit due to payment issues. We are on the high-risk band. Many atimes we are caught off guard and our planning fails... read more
Avaya killed the Norstar / BCM line which still has a lions share of the marketplace only to force them into an Avaya product or lose the business to competition. Same goes for the Nortel CS1000 and CallPilot. There are a ton of Meridian Mail and... read more
I just talk with a friend who works at Reuters and she confirmed that Shortel (with the help of bankers) will be buying Avaya's CC business. This should be come official early next week. Supposedly here are some synergies are expected but know major... read more
Its just as bad if not worse elsewhere. Tech as an employer is day by day becoming a risky place for a prolonged career. Just take a look at Cisco's layoff mesaage board. They have some of the same problems as we have (amplified though given the... read more
Sad to read the heartfelt comments but I too left as I saw the incompetence of the management team doing more damage. Avaya was great, with great solutions, but they didn't move on when they needed to. They also led by the worst management team I... read more
I got out in March 2017. I have nothing bad to say about Avaya. I worked on the Contact Center side. They should have kept the products making money and got rid of the ones that didn't, kind of makes sense to me. I was not laid off, but I was burnt... read more

Today, Avaya filed for yet another extension to the deadline for finalizing the C-11 plan with creditors. At this point, it should be obvious to anyone with 1/2 a brain that the creditors want to liquidate. Prolonging the inevitable by delay tactics... read more
Its not just Avaya. Revenues of major telecom companies have declined significantly in last few years. It's important for Avaya to diversify its business or merge with some infrastructure solutions company or service provider. I recently got chance... read more
In case anyone missed it, David Bonderman, the idiot who destroyed Avaya, was forced to resign from Uber's board, per WSJ. Seems he disparaged women, in response to a comment by, get this... Arianna Huffington. The comment was made during an "all-... read more
Liquidation is coming. Soon. Creditors are done negotiating. All the flowery, positive sounding rhetoric from Corporate is just nonsense so people will keep working. The "leaders" should at least have enough respect for all the loyal Avaya people to... read more
