    Former Employee - Manager in Ashburn, VA

    I worked at Verizon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    great pay, challenging, great group and teams below Sr Management. I maintain contact with many coworkers years after Verizon. Also - the learning experience both technically and culturally is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Long hours, hard or impossible to advance unless you have friends higher up. They will have big layoffs, but not reduce the workload, so the lucky ones that keep their jobs, get the work of 4 people piled on an already full workload

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to cut cost by reducing employees, understand you need to cut services as well. When you have a team, and you rif 75%, dont expect the same quantity and quality of work from the remaining team members.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Hampton, VA

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

    Pros

    This is the best company I have ever worked for, hands down.
    The environment is great, the staff is passionate and the pay was double industry standard.

    Cons

    If you have a family or school or anything else going on, you won't be able to do this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more flexible with families. A sick child and a very brief period of inability to adhere to schedule is no reason to let a veteran with excellent sales numbers go.
