    Pros

    Great benefits from day one. Top of the line pay.

    Cons

    HIGH STRESS JOB - with NEVER ENDING PRESSURE.....will eventually effect your overall health...although you may not realize of feel it....After all the $$ they invest hiring you, they spend the rest of your existance trying to find ways to fire you after your newness is gone. The idea of always having to prove yourself by coaching your subordinates and meeting/exceeding your ever changing out of reach monthly targets...and be advised your best is NEVER ENOUGH. Then you have cocky, ungrateful,sales reps who - you've helpped to succeed - who, new to the company, think they know more than someone with a decade long history with the company, who turn on you as retribution for any negative coaching you may have given by writing false accusations to your boss and puts your job in jeopardy as they don't believe in you, only someione they can promote and control.to make them look good to their boss. Typical Corporate ladder climbers. There are good people who do the right thing, as well. However, many are considered as bottom-feeders because they sell with integrity and honesty, while the foremention skirt those boundaries and causes untold customer escalations.....which is another thing. Verizon has never offered training to their managers regarding customer escalations.... they coach to it afrter the fact. But with as many whiny customers who demand compensation for issues they created themselves, and to deal with it fairly, only to have your District Manager or whoever turn around and undermine you by giving the customer whatever they wanted making you look and feel like a fool - decreasing that relationship with the customer and teaching them to do it again.....this is a daily example of the never ending repetious lifestyle...and by the way...Verizon comes first...Before family, before personal needs, and very unforgiving with tardiness due to weather conditions, as well.
