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.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
