Thread regarding Avaya layoffs

April layoffs at Avaya?

Is it true? Several people at the office seem convinced we'll be seeing more layoffs next month. I'm not sure where they got that info, so it'd be nice to know if they're right or just spreading unsubstantiated rumors.

I'd really appreciate any info on this...

Oh dear!!! This is no surprise and yes this is coming in April. Now, consider yourself in Avaya shoes and think what you gonna do, if your business revenue is declining, your employees are getting fat pay checks for doing nothing, you have huge amounts of debt loitering as compared to your revenue, you have already filed Chap 11 once...

So, ideally you are left with few options:

1) reduce office locations

2) reduce workforce/layoffs

3) file for chapter 11 or 7 again

4) reduce your expenses

5) reduce salaries

6) work really hard on products with fresh zeal like startups do

Honestly, Avaya has tried all except gor the last bullet because the empoyees and executive are not intrested in that. So, the easiest option above is option 2. And Bang.... Please my sincere request to you all is to move away from here even if you are getting same or lesser salary. I am movinh out next month for a salary a bit leeser than what I am drawing but I am happy.

Avaya has layoffs because it's revenue is declining, each quarter they must reduce head count just to meet payroll. This is nothing new and all employees should know this by now. The big question is how low can revenue go (it's below 3billion now) before the doors are closed for good.

Blessed Lord,

You already know before I speak what I am going to say. Nothing I say is a surprise to You and yet You yearn for my voice daily. I love You, God, because You love me as Your own child. I bring you a huge burden today, Lord. My company is downsizing because they are losing money. O gracious Lord, my department was told about potential lay-offs. I plead with You now, Father. Please keep my position safe. I am scared for my future, Lord. I pray for Your peace that truly passes all understanding. Give me an ease of mind as I continue to work at my job. Lord, if I am laid off, it is because You have allowed it and I pray that You would have another open door ready for me to walk through. You are King, Father, and I trust in Your will this day. Amen

Avaya is a great company if i need help progreaming a fone i call denver. I feel blesst to be working for a great compeany. Why ate people jealous of techknicianes like me with 24 years of employment and wanting me to leave on a buyout. I like my job and love avaya. I can work at my own pace and take lunch and coffee breaks and sigarette breaks too. I can probably prorgramm a partners date and time better than a collleage kid with Sisco certification. I work in the east and have been told i need to hsve someone retire or im out. I dont wanna leave here. Where are layoffs happening for reel?? Anyone know. Pleaze post in this foreum thank uoy!

Since you were able to use the word 'unsubstantiated' correctly in a sentence, i believe your job is safe, at-least for the foreseeable future. I am no Dr. Strange but such complex use of the English vernacular is hitherto unheard of in Avaya.

Be that as it may, under the extenuating circumstance that you do happen to be freed from the fetters of employment by a rather cruel folly of fate, you would then be able to substantiate the rumor that began this entire barrage. Wouldn't that be ironic !!!

How can there be a lay off when they are bringing back distribution technicians again to pull wire out of boxes.

So it has started again. Just like all previous instances at the end of every quarter, people have started spreading the rumours of lay offs.

Don't believe. Avaya is a very robust company making tons of profits. It's in leadership quadrant according to latest Gartner analysis...

Ye.. make me CEO.
