    Current Employee - Engineering Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (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.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are the only pros.

    Cons

    Terrible culture. Micro-managing. Zero advancement. Biased treatment. Written policies interpreted in what ever way benefits management the most at that point in time. Employees do not get credit for their work. Ethics issues are swept under the rug. Employees are kept in constant fear that they will be RIFd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs an overhaul.
