Approves of CEO

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 Management

Overall good experience with management, more transparency is needed though

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work, with hard working employees who truly wanted to do their job with excellence. Salary and bonus, with benefits was excellent. Plenty of room to grow and move up. No complaints.

    Cons

    Hectic schedule during the busy spring, summer months made work/life balance difficult. RIF (Verizon doesn't like the term layoffs.) dodging every November was stressful as well.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful in all your dealings.
