Thread regarding Avaya layoffs

America's most-hated CEO Kevin Kennedy at number 4


CEO approval rating: 28%

Company: Avaya

Glassdoor company rating: 2.7 / 5.0

Tenure as CEO: 8 years

Lead by CEO Kevin Kennedy, Avaya provides products and services for business communications. Kennedy has a PhD in engineering and also serves President Barack Obama on the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee. Despite these credentials, he is not well-regarded by his employees.

Employees frequently complain of being squeezed by the company, often working long hours without the reward of an annual pay raise. One reviewer wrote, “No raises, promotions, or work-life balance.” Meanwhile, Kennedy’s total compensation went from $1.3 million in 2012 to $7.4 million in 2013, a 454% spike, more than any other chief executive in the tech industry that year.

at least we can tell now that performance at avaya .is recognized.. (even externally).

kk gets number 4 in leadership (in the worst category)

however it is too bad the numbers about his compensation don t go beyond 2013

check 2014/2015 where he reaches £US 13/15 millions range (similar to cisco ceo comp plan)...

Sounds about right. However, they forgot:

  • He's a short-a-- little prick with a temper to match.

  • He's completely unapproachable.

  • He, and the rest of the EC can't help themselves they dropping hints about how rich they are.
