Pros

Great benefits package with enough choices to be able to tailor to individual needs. Lots of chance for personal growth; similar for professional growth within limitations. I have been with the company and its legacy companies since the late 1980s and have seen massive changes in the industry during that time. For the most part the changes have been good and necessary, but not all of them.

Cons

Not always the amount of communication between management and employees that I would like but that seems to be the norm these days. At times, the company seems to be too highly focused on growth instead of quality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't get caught up in the "we have to always do better than last year" syndrome. Let your status in the industry and among the general public speak for itself.

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, wonderful benefits, and a decent amount of good people to work amongst. In all honestly Verizon is a fantastic company to be a part of. You don't work a full week, the schedules are easy to follow, and the work is simple. The management is easy going and the products are something you can have faith in. The most amazing part is the 100% benefits in health and a 401k. They take good care of their employees and they compensate well for those that can accomplish the job they need to. I would highly reccomend this employer to anyone.

    Cons

    Time off is not easy to achieve. Seniority limits a lot of decisions. Communication amongst the company is not something that they are good at. Advertising department and promotions are awful. It's not easy to get a major problem fixed for a customer at any given time. The ordering and customer service system is incomplete and the IT department doesn't work fast enough for the sales reps to get their job done. Promotions are never clear, and the customer always has a problem with the company. Some of us reps believe that the upper upper class management has no care for the actual consumer, the one that ultimately pays the bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the customer. Get a new ad agency. Listen to your sales representatives, for they have the best customer feed back. But really, your ads for FiOS suck. Real bad.

    Pros

    It's a major phone / internet company with locations all over the country and world.

    Cons

    It's a very large company and is quite easy to get overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget to think about the workforce when making decisions for the company and not just about the shareholders.
