I worked at Verizon

Pros

If you want telco its a big player and its always changing

Cons

No real synergy within the company employee base. Verizon hemorages money daily and just keeps applying bandaids to big wounds. No communications between tier managment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tighten up the reporting process and better understand where your loosing money in your hard line business. The marn may have to be cut off before it infects the whole body. (stop dumping money into usless technologies for a business thats fading like the land line business)

    Pros

    Commissions can be great, given your level of dedication.

    Cons

    Can run into dry spells depending on location of store and the economy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience with customers suggests that there should be a more direct way to communicate
    bad customer service issues with the corporate reps. Many problems with "dismissive" new clerks at
    "franchise" stores.

    Current Employee - QA PM in Colorado Springs, CO

    I have been working at Verizon

    Pros

    I needed to gain the technical side of project management and took a position as Quality Assurance End to End Test PM. I have learned more about the technical than I knew existed. Great teams and very good processes for adequate requirements testing. Streamlined and automated communication processes keep Verizon paperwork light compared to IBM.

    Cons

    Contractors are restricted by the 4160 rule, meaning you can only owrk your contract for a maximum of approximately 2 years, then you are let go. Pay is very very low comparatively and I would not have taken the job if I had not needed to fill out my business heavy resume with technical expertise. No conract to hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the 4160 rule, relaxtcontract to hire regulations, and pay your contractors what they are worth. Privide more WFH opportunities. Happy employess mean productive employees.
