Thread regarding Avaya layoffs

Massive Layoff as part of reorganization

As part of reorganization, lot of non revenue generating products will be gone along with the people working on development and testing.

Focus will only be on top 10 products. Avaya Aura testing will be completely outsourced.

Expect reorganization not only at the leadership level but at the ground level as well.

Promoting existing employee as CEO is the clear indication that CEO is just for the name sake and a puppet in the hands of investors. A visionary company would have hired an experience CEO.

The future will be worse than the chapter 11 days.

when you have more leaderships and managers than employees .... then sometimes; it looks a bit peculiar

i just hope they get their "golden parachute" ;

About their future ? :

doing nothing outside avaya; compared to nothing at avaya .... not sure they might notice the change

The Executive Council and Senior Leadership team is reduced to almost half of it's size. Will this firing spree come down to managers and engineers too?

Will they increase revenue by reducing people?

The EC members and leadership team, Are they fired for non performance reason?

any word on when fiolettsk.rus most likely to happen?

by | Post ID:

agreed on CES.

by | Post ID:

Kill CS1K now. Kill any Avaya product older than Aura 6.2. Kill that dam CES joke of a product.

Make our Agent Desktops look viable.

So many things on the wish list.

This is great news! Kill the products that aren't making any money and tying up resources and increasing costs. Point customers to better products and a cleaner, consolidated, roadmap. Sounds like Avaya is finally starting to figure out how to become profitable!

Avaya has been way too nice, supporting hundreds of legacy products because they didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings and make the tough product decisions.

Same in Ireland. People realise company is a lost cause. Latest management change only vindication of how much of a sinking ship we're in.

It is exactly same in India as well.

It gets very tedious in the UK when you see all the managers trying to fluff their feathers and make themselves look good. UK director is currently trying to stuff as many people as possible under him in the latest power struggles. We have suffered a few good colleagues leaving in the last year and the latest shuffle isn’t helping us. Lots of people just waiting around for redundancy now, me included!!

Nopes, He was eyeing for it but it has been decided to look outside Avaya for the head of cloud business. Gary is leaving for sure.

Less of leadership / managers and more of engineers and technical leadership is the need of Avaya. During the crisis it was the talented engineers who left Avaya rather than people managers.

It is the best time to change complete leadership and management right from top to bottom level.

Gary is not leaving. He will take over cloud business at Avaya.

by | Post ID:

Gary was another contender for the post of CEO. Jim was selected and so Gary resigned.

by | Post ID:

Too bad for Avaya if Garry B has been asked to leave. He sent a thank you note few days before but the email doesn't clearly said that he is leaving Avaya.

It is clear evidence that there was conflict between EC team and investors which resulted in this change.

by | Post ID:

Gary B has gone, it was revealed in one of the no jitter articles.

by | Post ID:

Where is Garry B?

by | Post ID:

Companies reputation is at stake now. The brand value has decreased. A strong experienced CEO was the need of Avaya to bring it back to the competition.

Great paints a wonderful picture, can it really get any worse?

C'mon, everyone knows there is no testing. Customers and partners are the guinea pigs. Quality control has been a problem ever since the transition to server based PBXs.
