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
Avaya filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a motion seeking entry of an order approving the Debtors’ 3Q-4Q 2017 Key Employee Incentive Program (KEIP). The motion explains, “The Debtors request entry of an order approving the Debtors’ 3Q-4Q 2017 Key... read more
Just read this in another thread: Hearing from Avaya partners that the suits by Oracle and Black Berry have slowed the Chap 11 significantly and may have pushed Chap 11 exit away, leading to Chapter 7. Hearing from many disgruntled partners that... read more
The Cisco and Genesys teams are checking, and creating/contributing to, the negativity on these message boards daily as a FUD/sales strategy. I know because I'm one of them. I feel bad for my ex-Avaya coworkers that are taking this stuff seriously... read more
I heard at the Santa Clara office that an agreement and alignment has been reached between the stakeholders and final proposal will be made by end of this month. And we shall come out of bankruptcy by July end.
Now these guys are quite after getting the salary hike. No more new rumors and suddenly it feels everything is just right at Avaya. What a World we Live in????
Has anyone received theirs yet?
What does everyone think about that E-mail that talked about Apathy????? Hey management agree to a new contract with a no layoff clause for the duration (3 years) and then we will show interest again... I say we because I am the best in my group and... read more
Do you think Avaya will emerge from Chapter 11 or do you think they will sink further and go Chapter 7? My money is on chapter 7 no matter how much Kool-aid they want us to drink, i can't see the creditors wanting anything to do with this nonsense... read more
As one of the networking unfortunates who did not get an offer from Extreme, I can only say that it's a pitty that the leadership of BOTH companies didn't have the freaking common sense to look beyond a person's job title and location before making... read more
Everyone should fight for their bonus and increment as what the executives asked for their bonus. Pity those that stay and still committed without getting theirs. Pathetic management, pathetic company.
How likely is that Oracle will be acquiring Avaya any time soon?
we haven't received the annualappraisal letters yet..... not sure why so much delay or Are we not getting it at all? Did someone asked their managers? My manager in pune said he is waiting for a go ahead from HR.
Has anyone been informed by managers if extreme is rolling out an offer - also has any one recieved an offer yet - what about home office is that a valid option
Remember that the Extreme APA stated that at least 50% of the people will be retained? Well that also means that up to 49% probably won't be. It's happening now - this week.
What should we expect? Salary hike or layoffs. We have not yet received anticipated salary hike letters in India. Why so much delay? This is not business as usual. Do you have any clue? Please update....
So Avaya networking was worth only $100M. Isn't it too bad? And there were no bidders at all. This clearly shows how poor was Avaya's networking business. And now I am pretty convinced that other products UC and CC of Avaya would follow the same. The... read more
Extreme wants the customers. They'll only keep the technology long enough to placate the fears of the current Avaya/Nortel install base. Some features may get migrated into XOS (Extreme Operation System), but the Avaya technology lines will die a... read more
It's really funny to watch all the butt-licks in Networking scrambling for a seat at the table. You know who you are. #HappytostayatAvaya
as conflict counselors. It's pretty obvious that the creditors aren't having any of the BS restructuring plan or the strong arm tactics Avaya is trying to use to force them into a bad deal. This lawfirm specializes in dealing with difficult... read more
It's official. The networking business is being sold to Extreme. Finally, we will be out from under the insanity known as Avaya. Good-bye to the corrupt, ineffective leadership that has driven Avaya into the ground. I can only hope that you are... read more
So now we have sales people from the WSJ and USA Today drumming up business by posting rumors without substance...... There is currently no filing listed at the prime clerk website by AT&T of this nature, except for them wanting to protect their... read more
Heard from solid sources about all hands call for networking employees - seems extreme ceo was also there - any updates from ppl who attended ?
Hot off the press it's a done deal 50% of the management team will he let go. This information is 100% accurate in India they will retain most of the managers so don't worry in India. USA and Canada will dispatch from Oklahoma. This plan will save... read more
Avaya will be in the chapter 7 soon....few days or months to goo......Another Nortel?
I saw a thread here earlier, but it seems to be missing now. Is this site administrated?
Would like to understand how Oracle has a interest in this ? http://www.reuters.com/article/bankruptcy-avaya-idUSL2N1IK2FI
Lot of Super Heroes (Top Performers) have left and are continually leaving Avaya. Why? Only because they now understand that its end of Avaya. Otherwise it is not easy to leave a progressive company when you have worked with all your heart and soul.
So do we have other bidders for Networking or extreme networks is the winner
Haven't you seen the wonderful 2nd quarter financial results? Results were stronger than the expectations. Now keep your mouth shut and remember Avaya will emerge stronger and better after Chapter 11. This is a slap on the face of the people who are... read more
That is the only way to characterize the interaction between the creditors and the idiots at Avaya. The creditors filed a document today that basically objects to Avaya paying out the supplemental pension out as retiree benefits to survivors. The... read more
So, we didn't do well enough to fund the 401K match, but we WERE able to pay those loser "leaders" $4 million in bonuses. Am I the only one that thinks this is total BS? What a bunch of pathetic, corrupt, self-serving bastards. I can't want to get as... read more
