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

    Overall, the benefits with Verizon are very good. They differ between hourly and management. Hourly has better health/dental benefits, while management gets higher pay in most cases, with a better opportunity for an annual bonus. If you work hard and are flexible, you can get noticed and advance in the company. Verizon also has a very generous education assistance program, with many employees getting their degrees paid 100% by the company, including books.

    Cons

    It is a large company dealing with the difficult move from a regulated monopoly to a competitive entertainment and broadband provider on the telco side. It takes hits in the press and with friends/neighbors about its customer service, so it can be difficult to keep your pride. But the vast majority of employees are very hard-working, dedicated employees who are very committed to customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make investments in systems and employees as much as you are investing in fiber.

    Pros

    The pay used to be good, but now it's harder to hit your target commission and bonus commission structure.

    Cons

    You have to work weekends and holidays, as well as having a blackout period where you can't take vacation in the 4th quarter of the year. Selling enhanced features also was hard at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since upper management is making so much money, the sales reps should also be compensated in a higher fashion.
