Current Employee - IT Manager in Silver Spring, MD
Current Employee - IT Manager in Silver Spring, MD

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

Pros

Good benefits and competetive or better salary especially the more years you have ... In IT for 25 years, there is room for advancing through different jobs such as programmer, project manager, release manager or program management but becoming a manager with reporting people is much harder - good work life balance most of the time unless you are a tester or developer

Cons

Lots of reorganizations i& budget cuts in IT lead to RIF's of good hard working people, contractors go first - atleast 2 RIF's per year... must be on important programs where funding and focus is placed...outsourcing is an issue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall good experience with management, more transparency is needed though
