    I worked at Verizon

    Pros

    Salaries and benefits are excellent compared to other places that I have worked. The building is very nice and the work area was quiet and peaceful. There are some very nice perks including a full Gym in the building.

    Cons

    There are quite a few cons, most of which I'm sure would be largely subjective depending on one's department, boss, nature of work, etc. The issue I would like to touch on is job security (or lack thereof). I moved to NJ from out of state to accept this position and was laid off within 8 months.

    Also, my work was very unfulfilling. It is very difficult to imagine how my job made any tangible benefit to the company which created an environment where I wasn't very emotionally invested in my work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be very helpful for you to treat employees as your most important asset, rather than a disposable resource

    Layoffs every quarter, sweatshop type atmosphere.

    Pros

    The money was OK, I suppose.

    Cons

    Always layoffs at the end of every quarter.. Do less with more. Train your replacement and we won't be needing you anymore!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your jobs here in the USA! Customers do not appreciate being handed off from an American engineer to someone who barely can comprehend the English language.
