I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Awesome group of coworkers, interesting projects, everyone is telecommute and the hours flexible. Top of market salary. Lots of hardware to play with. Mutual trust and respect all over the place. Been here three years now and still liking it a lot.

Cons

It's a huge company, around 200k worldwide, so there's big-corp idiocy in places like IT and HR. If you get the wrong group, it's a bad place to work. And of course, epic politics; there's real money in play.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reopen the FIOS project: the country needs it and the profit is there to be had. Work harder to collaborate with other groups in the company.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant Complex Delivery

    I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The benefits and compensation are excellent, opportunities to work remotely for some jobs, most people get along and are easy to work with, there is little politics at the working level

    Cons

    Constant lay offs, constant reorganizations, upper management does not understand how things work at the lower levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop constant RIF's; make cuts at once and be done; employees are under constant stress of being laid off. Stop the constant re-organizations

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
