No opinion of CEO

I worked at Verizon full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Professional environment Verizon Business Product Portfolio is massive Solutions focus to high end enterprise customers Sales Engineers are real professionals Solution consultants as over-lay are a valuable sales support Sales Management Team is solid, real professional Good base pay, excellent commission plan Fantastic Benefits ( even on the non-Union Side of the company) 401k is the best !

Cons

Lousy Culture--long term employees are miserable Unrealistic Quotas Poor implementation of solutions Installation in-region by Union = Nightmare! could be done in half the time, but labor agreement is a hinderance Service management is a mess--due to outsourcing to Phillipines. Billing is a mess--resoltion also outsourced to Phillipines No commitment by management to fix customer problems--just want new revenue Poor Integration of Teremark New Sr. leadership (as of 2012) is too transactional focused. Former model was solution focused. Poor compensation for Professional Services ( Terremark services) On going layoffs are a standard way of running the business. Who gets chosen is as much a mystery as who doesn't.

Advice to Management

Get a Clue ! The key differentiator for VzB Enterprise is Terremark's Professional Services; consulting/security & Cloud but if commission plan remains lousy for these services, AE's will not sell it.

  1. Excellent place to learn HP ALM Quality Center and Telecom Products

    Former Contractor - Quality Assurance Project Manager in Colorado Springs, CO
    Former Contractor - Quality Assurance Project Manager in Colorado Springs, CO

    I worked at Verizon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got a real workout on HP ALM Quality Center and Telecom Product order flow when I was contracted by Infinite Computer Solutions to Verizon Business in Colorado Sprngs, CO. This included entering Requirements, Test Cases and Defects and performing of the proper linking of items in QC. There was lots of training on Telecom Product ordering process flow and HP ALM QC.

    Cons

    The hourly rate for the contract was on the low side and there was no free coffee.

    Advice to Management

    Offering free coffee to your employees might boost morale and productivity slightly.
