Working for Verizon

Manager (Former Employee)
Irving, TX

ProsCompensation and benefits are good

ConsCan be a dictatorship environment. When asked for your oppinion what is really being asked is to agree with the perspective of Senior Management or legacy Verizon (this is how we have always done it), if not you will be on the fast track out the door.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow the directives from Senior Management and do not go against time proven ways of how Verizon has done business.
Don't trust anyone, even if they seem like your best friend, especially if they are legacy Verizon. They will often talk bad about a Senior Manager acting as a mole to get your oppinion and relay it back to the Senior Manager. It is best to keep a neutral stance.
All strategic objectives are set with plenty of padding. Senior Management do not miss objectives, there is always a way to adjust the reporting by shifting results from one area to another.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
