    Pros

    Great place to start to work since the name and brand recognition is widely known throughout the world. Work is relatively easy and lots of benefits given to employees such as great health package and trainings funds and exams.

    Cons

    Sadly the compensation for Verizon got way behind the times. At the time that I started in here, compensation is above its competitors, now after 4 y ears, its compensation was left behind in the times.

    Another problem with Verizon is managements complete utter disregard for the voice of its lower employees. Most of the time, a decision WILL be made without checking the opinions of the people involved. Another thing is the constant suck-up mentality with the upper management will get you anywhere while a straight arrow will leave you stagnant in your career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask first your staff / employees before making huge changes to the company or to the organization as a whole. Higher compensation for the times.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are good - life assurance, health insurance, 10% bonus, cycle2work.

    Cons

    As it's a big company, LOTS of people who have been there for years and have no intention of leaving. Using the company as a place to pass time. As there is no high employee throughput, the workplace stagnates. Senior Management in the US dictate policy without listening to even the lower management, company credo and self-publicity stuffed down your throat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the management level goes up, the level of competency seems to go down. If you create an architecture team, listen to them. Don't let marketing or your peers decide on software purchases by yourselves - take advice! Stop listening to the Domestic employees who don't want to leave legacy and progress the company.
