Being a part of Avaya’s Global Management Development Program has been an amazing experience! It’s great to know that you are being groomed for a leadership position within a large organization and that the work you’re doing now has a direct impact on your career.

The GMDP has already had a profound impact on the commencement of my career. Because it is a two year accelerated management preparation program, I am now on the fast track for my career growth. It is providing me with the opportunity to have structured training, work in smaller developmental groups with my peers to practice various types of leadership and management skills, provides executive exposure, and after one year I will have the opportunity to rotate into another function related to my career path, which will provide more developmental opportunities and more exposure to other areas of the company for a greater business understanding. I have gained a lot of exposure to meaningful and challenging work at Avaya. It is a great place to grow my career.

The Global Management Development Program has given me the opportunity to take leadership in hands-on business impactful projects, while being in a controlled learning environment. The rotational aspect of the program has allowed me to develop a cross-functional network across Avaya. Through this network, I’ve been able to implement creative strategies in my role as an Associate Territory Account Manager like recruiting business partners to help build a pipeline. I’ve also enjoyed being a part of the first GMDP class and helping shape the program. Finally, I look forward to going to California this summer and meeting all of my fellow GMDPs from across North America!
