A summer worth remembering

Former Employee - Intern in Basking Ridge, NJ
Former Employee - Intern in Basking Ridge, NJ

I worked at Verizon

Pros

Friendly atmosphere, many worthwhile events, and valuable training sessions. Hourly pay is also very good (approx $17 per hour). Interns can begin contributing to a 401k with the company. The company intends to breed interns into full time employees. Definately worth working at the headquarters as opposed to one of Verizon's small offices as the majority of its senior leadership is positioned in Basking Ridge.

Cons

Technical support issues with passwords/logon screens is highly frustrating. Little supervision of employees often leads to wandering minds. Need to better explain the steps that need to be taken to transition to a full time employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to provide interns with a timeline from advancing from intern to full time employee upon graduation.

    I have been working at Verizon

    Pros

    * Relaxed work environment (in my dept)
    * Great people
    * Solid benefits / 401k match / Tuition reimbursement / bonus

    Cons

    * Promos seem to be thing of the past
    * Lots of downsizing
    * Customer service not what it used to be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promoting people is important especially when they are doing 2 or 3 times the work due to all of the consolidation.

    Verizon, a well paying company, but very cold company.

    Pros

    Verizon has great benefits, and is all over the US, so in company transfers are nice. Ability to make good money is not impossible, just challenging.

    Cons

    You are not valued. You are a number not a person. Work comes before family. Say goodbye to a personal life. Everything about the business is constantly changing, hard to keep up. Upper management is not personable and only cares about the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive to help out your business and listen to the employees and their suggestions
