I worked at Verizon full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay, excellent benefits. Work from home.

Cons

Cutbacks cutbacks cutbacks.

Clear all IT development is going to India. India techs are awful and make job unenjoyable. Hours are horrible now due to having to coordinate with team in India.

Impossible work loads.

Constant layoffs. Just laid off 40% of IT. Even laid off India team members.

Despite constantly saying otherwise, the red tape is getting thicker by the day.

This isn't wireless and they bleed money. 100% focus on dividends over people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get current with how dev is done. Realize Outsourcing to India is going to bury you long term. Stop making all strategy about quarterly stock profits and start figuring out how to make this a solid company long term.
