    Pros

    Very capable company with vast resources
    Has a credible history of customer sevice and community service
    Lots of great people
    Depending on your business unit- very good benefits

    Cons

    Management pays lip service to ethics and empowerment but basically treats employees like dogs
    Getting tech support, HR support and other support is almost impossible
    Penny wise-pound foolish

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees- Just don't pay lip service
    Look at how great companies treat their employees and realize that you can make a place great to work without having to spend a lot of money

    Pros

    Pay is competitive (but not enough to overcome the many cons)

    Cons

    Extremely bureaucratic, Mediocrity rules (anyone with a brain leaves asap) - you will learn nothing, Extremely political/back-stabbing type culture - this overshadows work, Miserable place overall.

    I left as soon as I could!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being complacent and think what will happen if the landscape changes (think WiMax and Google). You are only in the business because you are a duopoly protected by the US government that fleeces US consumers. VZ will die if ever forced to compete fairly.
