    I worked at Verizon

    Pros

    depends on management- I love my job when I worked here but had friends who had horrible managers and hated their jobs and left quickly

    Cons

    RIF of Directors just months before retirement-wow
    constant fear of layoffs - every few months
    ***Recruiters don't acknowledge referrals, as a recruiter for Fortune 500 nationwide companies, this is huge for company morale but apparently Verizon isn't concerned about morale or employee referrals. As recruiters don't even acknowledge referrals when they are emailed them...****
    Stripped flexible schedules due to executives coming to the Tulsa location

    Current Employee - Management in Oxnard, CA

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

    Pros

    Good pay and above average benefits. Most people are friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of work/life balance attribute to high absenteeism across the company. Employees are treated like a number rather than a valued employee. Things are evolving slowly for the better, but due to the size of the company and a large union staff, changes come at a snail's pace. In addition, proper credit is not being given for the work you do. It's all about how much your boss likes you, not your ability to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide added benefits to your employees if you want them to sacrifice their time with friends and family to work additional overtime. Benefits include onsite gym, childcare, cafeteria, and laundry/dry clean facilities.
