Unwieldy bureaucracy, poor leadership, good compensation, outstanding coworkers.

Pros

One of the largest IT environments around means plenty of scope. VZ has enough capital to keep the environment reasonably modern. Downsizing through the 200xs meant that the people remaining when I left were generally outstanding.

Cons

Senior management displayed indifferent leadership skills. Pressure to keep costs down was rapidly hitting the point of trying to get blood from a stone. Work-life balance was kind of a joke.

Advice to Management

Conduct 360 reviews of all management staff to differentiate people who just give orders from actual leaders.

    Pros

    Was great when the company was MCI. Rewarded employees for good work.

    Cons

    They never wanted you to stop working. Unfair. Some people go shopping and do errands all day w one or two account s to project manage. Other s get bombarded w
     20 or more accounts to PM. Seem to reward the ones who do the least possible.

    Advice to Management

    None. Never helped to complain or offer suggestions.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, vacation time, work from home

    Cons

    Quarterly layoffs - every quarter. Many unnecessary levels of management. Processes are overbearing and many make no sense. Customer service is horrible. Many products do not work properly and delivery times on many products allows customers to go elsewhere with their business. In smaller groups, it's cut throat due to the continual threat of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    None. Obviously, you know what you are doing.
