Pros

Excellent pay and benefits. Good strong company in the Telecommunications Industry. Good brand name and recognition. Company with good financials and solid company.

Cons

In the last ten years the company has taken some big hits from cable companies and other competitors. Company was late to see the changes coming in telecommunications.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Must be more proactive to current events and less reactive. Don't be caught again by the competition with your guard down.

    Good company but downsize experienced employees to hire cheaper inexperienced help resulting in lower performances.

    Pros

    The pay is competitive if you don't mind doing the job of three people.

    Cons

    You are always taking on additional task to keep your job. Someone else is alway ready to replace you and they don't mind wearing you out without overtime or adequate compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Verizon has given little to no incentive for employees that work hard to stay with the company. Things have changed drastically since the MCI merger and not for the good. Strong employees are being downsized or leaving as there is no incentive to stay. Verzion has become a job instead of a career for most.

    As a fresher, its helped me develop a base to use to move forward in the industry-within Verizon or elsewhere.

    Pros

    Its a large company with diverse services and products. One can latch oneself onto the product development or management channels to get experience in a plethora of functions.

    Cons

    Its a large company so one tends to get lost in the crowd though the management does make an effort to highlight accomplishments. Company politics can be a pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a need to slightly streamline the way things work. It's always a good idea to listen to the people in the field and on the shop floor to know the realities. Efforts are made to make things better but we're not there yet.
