I worked at Verizon

Pros

The pay and benefits at Verizon are the best in the industry.

Cons

There is very limited opportunity for growth in many non-management positions. Even if you use the educational benefits and get all the degrees and certificates available, unfortunately, in order to put those skills to work, you will likely be forced to seek employment elsewhere. Many employees promoted to management positions have only demonstrated the ability to do their previous job well and have not demonstrated the ability to lead. Consequently, many employees holding management positions do not understand how job satisfaction directly affects employee performance and attendance, which in turn directly affects customer satisfaction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure that employees are treated as valuable assets. When employees fill out satisfaction surveys, listen and act.

    Pros

    above avg base pay- still in top 100 fortune companies for benefits

    Cons

    None if your union. Union based associates with unreasonable and costly contracts do hamper what the company is able to give mgt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to bust the expensive regulatory tax on Pots service and sale it for 12 bucks a month. Keep pouring capital in Fios

    Pros

    Challenging projects, good people, latest technologies.

    Cons

    Too many fire drills and last minute "most have" projects that don't provide the company the roi they promise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan and prepare for projects better... we are always working in fire drill mode.
