Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time focusing on resolving reoccurring issues and barriers to productivity, rather than just attempting just push employees harder.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great Company great benefits great pay

    Cons

    Higher to many uneducated people and push them to sell sell sell while making the goals unattainable. Also rewarding the people who are unethical which have given the company a bad name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on top of people not showing up for work and not producing and also the people that are producing unethically.
