I have been working at Verizon full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pay and benefits are pretty decent, and they have a decent tuition reimbursement policy. Unfortunately, a decent benefits package is all there is to say about Verizon now.

Cons

Verizon's Finance Department is not a healthy environment to work for straight, white, males of European descent. Nor is it a mentally healthy environment for Asian women who do not wish to be compelled into 'traditionally subservient' roles. Verizon is no longer a company where one can makes a career, but is more the place where you build up a little experience and move on.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Verizon Management might want to at least try and make it appear that they are trying to live by the Chairman's 'code'. Someone should review some of the more 'interesting' promotions, transfers of people within the Finance Department, where "what you know" is trumped by who you know, and how often you hang out in the gym.

    Pros

    Bi-weekly check, match up to 6% of your 401k, 10%, 12% and 20% bonus depending on your band.

    Cons

    No room for growth for minorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have only worked for one Telecom company (14ys), so I am not sure I am qualified to say. It maybe like every other company only a few really get it. Its all about relationship; if you treat people good they will go to the end of the world for you.
