Our Culture

Our Culture

Avaya is a company of Futuremakers. Our clients rely on us to see into the future on how they will engage with customers, with employees, with partners. We rely on our employees to make that future happen through bold action, innovative thinking, customer focus and teamwork. We are a unique combination of heritage – over 100 years of innovation - and a start-up mentality. Our status as a private company has allowed Avaya to transition very quickly from a product company to a software/services outfit to a cloud-based solutions provider as the market has shifted.

 
We have deliberately nurtured a culture that will attract and engage Futuremakers. Ours is an environment full of ambiguity and change, where leaders face unfamiliar problems and shifting conditions every day. Working at Avaya means making bold decisions and taking smart risks. We rely on data and a rigorous inspection of facts. As a company that does daily battle with bigger competitors, we view agility and adaptability as a competitive advantage. Our “stack” has to work better than our competitors’ which means we must work seamlessly across different functions, from sales to engineering to services. We make decisions at the right level and own the outcomes. We believe the future is made through constructive confrontation, challenge and vigorous debate. We have run the marathon of transformation knowing that waiting at the finish line, after a celebration, is another race.
 
Our Futuremakers include:
Over 2,800 people directly involved in selling Avaya
Over 2,200 engineers engaged in product/solution development
