Thread regarding Avaya layoffs

Layoffs/Ethics/Culture HELP

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 saying it's 6 mos away for the last 3 years) and most critically the Ethics process. There so is a women who is like a trained psychologist who is directed to "scope" out any complaints by gaining trust of an employee. As soon as the employee shares, she tells them that there is nothing she can do, that everything the employer shared is fair game and not confidential, that a decision was made not to pursue the concerns, yet what she based the decision on is confidential and she can't share it with the employee. She also kind of gives a threat to the employee if the employee mentions the interaction with anyone (yet she is allowed to share with whomever she sees fit). And, despite the employee handbook that encourages employees to speak up without fear of retaliation about ANY concerns, she claims she is only there to rule out that your concern is not a Civil Rights Violation. That she has no responsibility for any employee bullying, harassment, false claims, targeting or retaliation. Then she disappears. Oh. And she is certain to threaten you that she knows everyone and if you mention to anyone that you spoke to her it will get back to her. For a publicly traded company it is almost criminal.

Remarkably accurate and widespread.
Oh Avaya, how can you continue to allow this disease to spread?

I’ve experienced this too - to call a department ethics and compliance compared to what they do is like false advertising.

This is part of the culture at Avaya. She is a character who is part of the Zero Sum strategy -- always find a way to claim employee is wrong (just as they do with customers). Same as with their Cloud sales people -- just tell every account team, across the board, that they don't have the right contacts at the client, tell them they don't know what they are doing and disguise leadership failure by "zero sum" (which means....one person is right --leadership, and that in turn means everyone else is wrong). The wizard-behind-the-curtain so called "ethics" lady is just the enforcer to ensure Avaya keeps it's position and always keeps the employee down.
