I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Career opportunities are available. Employees care about their jobs and delivering the best service possible to customers. Technology evolution makes it an interesting company to work for.

Cons

People get focused on delivering numbers and forget to address other issues that may not seem important but actually plays an indirect role in delivering the numbers that are so important.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Everyone should be working together to ensure we maintain a successful company. Objectives assigned to departments are not the same. A lot of time may be spent trying to get others to "help" if there is no "benefit" perceived by the person since it does contribute to their objectives. At times it feels as if we are not working for the same company.

    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.
