If You're highly ambitious, you can advanced within the company

You can develop a false sense of security

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop over-hiring contractors and laying them off after 30 months, just to start over with a new inexperienced contractor.

    I have been working at Verizon

    Pros

    Verizon has a terrific range of solutions to offer the enterprise business market. As an employee, I benefit from strong brand recognition, although the consumer brand sometimes gets in the way of our reputation as a strong enterprise player. I find the compensation and benefits very competitive for the marketplace.

    Cons

    It's difficult to come from the outside, especially from outside of the telecom industry. There are many processes, acronyms and standards that are assumed by the existing staff.
