Pros

Good compensation benefits & flexible work schedule. The managers were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the projects they were working to complete.

Cons

Dealing with labor union, the occasional working strike, and the occasional unproductive conference call. Otherwise there were very few that made working with Verizon unsatisfactory.

Advice to Management

At times the organizational level of small things like ID badges and communication amongst managers from other offices is a bit out of key. Otherwise in my experience the leadership I was witness to was very good.

    Pros

    A lot of talented people at the ground troop level. The glue holding it all together. Verizon has deep pockets which allows them the ability to survive on interest payments alone. Very good compensation package.

    Cons

    Unqualified leadership in roles gained by political connection vs. ability to lead. Looking out for number one instead of a holistic view of what they can do to benefit the company as a whole in solving for business issues and driving a successful organization where people enjoy coming to work. Little creativity, mostly just "get it done" mentality. Good compensation does not compare to a truly creative work environment that people are excited to be in.

    Advice to Management

    There's more to management than a big desk. A manager is not a leader. Before you can lead you have to be willing to serve. A true leader understands the impact they can have on an organization, both positive and negative.
