I have been working at Verizon full-time for 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

    Pros

    Slackers do well because you're not a threat to the powers that be.

    Cons

    Attempting to pursue a career will get you snuffed out by greedy self serving Directors who's agenda is solely to climb the corporate latter. They have no desire to see you excel. Many have sacrificed their youth only to find themselves no better off than when they started. They will only outsource your job as soon as feasible. However they fall asleep each night counting their money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management's role is to play the 'bad guy'. They have no real authority.

    No opinion of CEO
