I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Salary is amoung the best
Good working environment
excellent employees to work with

Cons

Middle management doesn't always share the same ideas as upper management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers should not issue blanket edicts or punish all employees for some who do not follow the rules. They should manage their employees not just manage the work.

    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.
