I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The salaries are okay, if you want personal growth you better learn it yourself

Cons

70% of IT Vice Presidents are Indian. Whole teams may have 1 American. Constantly having RIFS where the older Americans are let go and more new, young Indians are hired. There is no work balance, if they have something they want done, kiss your weekends or nights good-bye. There is little if any leadership. The VPs worry if you telecommute when they should be looking at strategic direction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You make your money here and lots of it, hire people born here.

    I have been working at Verizon for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. That's about it.

    Cons

    poor if any training at all is provided. Wireless division is a money maker and the only portion of the company the senior executives want to invest in. So, the landline customer suffers poor service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in training, equipment, and employee skill set more. Stop paying insane top executive bonuses and salaries for managers who are incapable of innovation and have no skills other than how to schmooze.
