    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn fantastic sales skills. Good place to understand the "corporate entity" and learning to work for the "man". Pay is good, and if you are good at understanding compensation structures, you can make 60-80k/yr Fun toys, and generally intelligent employees.

    Cons

    Where to start. Compensation of employees is completely inverse to performance metrics. you are now forced to sell customers on features and programs that cost them hundreds of more dollars just to get paid your commission. If you don't you are not paid and your metrics suffer, if your metrics are bad (even if you are very profitable to the company) you get fired. Sales are micromanaged and constantly coached. Expectations on accessory sales per phone require you to be pushy and aggressive. Your schedule is inhumane and intolerable. It felt like a rat race, I can say I was one of the best. Multiple Presidents Cabinet awards, exotic trips, and yet somehow, it still was not good enough for this corporation. My anxiety was always high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The pressure from your metrics is causing your front line to crumble. By the time I left, no one had any team pride or brand identity. If its money you want, build a structure that truly motivates your customers to WANT to buy more because the VALUE is obvious. Instead, we resorted to confusing our customers into paying more with edge, nickle and diming them with revenue generating features they don't need. If you really want your customers to pay more, stop the gimmicks, stop the manipulation and create ACTUAL VALUE that the client can see and understand without a salesperson finding the "right solution" with confusing price plans.

    Please fix the compensation system. It is so horribly confusing that myself and one other person in my state understood how we actually were paid. It made sense back in 2007- mid year 2011, but after account level pricing, the number of moving parts, and exceptions to rules on the commission system makes it cryptic. Employees don't know how they get paid. Therefore, they are not motivated by the commission system making it worthless to the majority of your retail employees.
