Current Employee - Member of Technical Staff in Tampa, FL

I have been working at Verizon full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The company has a great place in the market & is one of the biggest around. Lots of areas of the business to become involved with to fit your interests as an employee.

Cons

In IT, I see lots of jobs being outsourced & domestic employees who have been working for the company 30+ years being laid off. Makes me uncertain about long-term employment here.

    Current Employee - Consumer Sales in Dallas, TX

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

    Pros

    Benefits were excellent, pay was fair. This was solely due to a Union environment. Sales position with no very little checks on quality customer service. Also, extremely unethical sales techniques being overlooked buy middle management due to their sales reps results directly impacting their pay.

    Cons

    Very liitle advancement opportunity, constant layoffs. Micromanagement on steroids. Bathroom breaks monitored. Working under a microscope is an understatement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement better quality assurance to make sure ethical sales are being enforced instead of using these type of reps for a couple years to make "numbers" before firing them for unethical behaviors.

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

    Pros

    Salary, bonus, some very clever people still working at Verizon.

    Cons

    Every deliverable seems to be in 2 weeks, regardless of the project. Business requirements are written/defined as the project is already in develpment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your homework. Understand the project, requirements. Then set a plan. Culture rewards buzz words preaching people.
