    I worked at Verizon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large organization with large vendor relationships. Lots of locations.

    Cons

    Poor management at the top level. Frequent layoffs, outsourcing to overseas locations which is reducing customer service. The company is more focused on cost savings due than anything else due to rapid lowering customer prices. The wireless division is the only one that is not suffering from losses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to retain good engineers in the US.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Big company. You have the ability to move around when they close down your office or relocate your job. You can hide and do nothing as long as you look busy.

    Cons

    Big company. Ant on an ant hill. Lots of passing the buck. Only a few people have the real information and they are harder to find then a needle in a haystack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wow...really? They didn't listen when I worked there...I'll save my breath.
