I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Compensation is inline with industry average

Cons

- Pressure to boost short-term earnings at the expense of long-term value creation
- Constant reduction in force keeps employee moral low
- No promotion opportunities do to the constant layoffs and keeping things status quo

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Direct focus to your employee's. A happy workforce will drive shareholder value and innovation. An employee isn't going to innovate or give it 100% if they fear they will be let go in a few months due to reduction in force.

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

    Pros

    UNION JOB. Good pay & benefits.

    Cons

    Everything except the pay & benefits !
    From the very day you complete the 3 month company paid training, the management harasses the employees & attempts every way possible to get you fired. The technology's that Verizon gives the workers to do their jobs with are outdated & insufficient. The workers are expected to do their jobs at a particular speed, yet the company provides tools insufficient to do so which leads to unnecessary high amounts of stress to both the employee & customers alike ! Constant threats of disciplinary action are made to the employees by the local management leading to unnecessary amounts of stress which leads to large numbers of employees using their allotment of vacation time to deal with their stress caused illnesses !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop using their "Hitler" form of management & start treating the many hard working employees with the same respect that they would want to be treated !!
