I have been working at Verizon

Pros

Verizon IT has some really good projects going on - it is Challenging work. Verizon also has excellent benefits with yearly bonuses and 401K match.

Cons

IT employees have a challenging task of working with teams in India early in the morning and work with onshore team till late in the day - so they end up working Long hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider More employees telecommute.

    I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They are a major player in the Telecommunications market

    Cons

    The culture there is antiquated. There is a "union" mindset in everything they do. No real concern for getting the job done, more concerned with not being liable for screwups!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on the formal education of your technical people.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    More or less OK salaries

    Cons

    They expect you to work 24x7, no training and travel for onshore eployees, carreer path doesn't exsist, most of IT upper/mid management of particular origins.
    There is no planning - upper management gives "Go-Live" date no matter of resources availability/training/current load
