I worked at Verizon as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

The pay was fantastic, I loved working with my team, the deadlines were reasonable, I was never over worked. There was plenty of time to get the work done and have some fun.

Cons

Lots of people involved in projects, some red tape to deal with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the creative/technical departments do their jobs, trust them to finish the task without too much oversight and they will continue to thrive.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
