    Pros

    Great Salary, Good benefits. This is one of the top communications companies in the world. Not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    Associate employees could go on strike every several years. Not a great feeling of job security. Potential to be transferred anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Give us the ability to do the jobs that we want to do and to go the path that we want to travel.

    Pros

    It's a very big company to work for with benifits, good pay and advancement if you wanted it. I had a great career at verizon and enjoyed working with most people there.

    Cons

    It's a very big company to work for, which can be frustrating at times. In my whole career i meet very few of the upper managment.

    Advice to Management

    go out in the field and meet the people that work for you. There are people in this company that are motivated by a positive word now and then.

    Pros

    Verizon Communications offers great salaries and benefits, including tuition assistance, for their union employees. They are one of the few union employers left in the United States. They offer great training so that their employees are always among the top in the industry in all levels of customer service.

    Cons

    There are few opportunities for associate advancement unless you hold a college degree and make the most of what Verizon has to offer.

    Advice to Management

    Management positions are difficult to move into if you are a current employee. With this being said, outside applications for managers are well received. You must be willing to adapt to change and to participate in the success of the overall organization.
