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

Manager I (Former Employee) Southfield, MI

ProsOne 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.

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
