Pros

Verizon is a Fast Paced, Technology Savvy, Latest in Technology advances company.
Management force is well educated, althought some old managers are still at work with odd ideas. Good benefits, great management school for yourself

Cons

Totally stockholder driven (Stock return and performance is #1 priority, Employees comes second or third).
Lateral moves limited to location. Promotions extremely difficult after Mid management.

    Current Employee - Engineering Manager in New York, NY

    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.
