Pros

Great benefits especially health care and 401k are very good.
Telecommuting - You have good flexibility to work from home.

Cons

This is very political place. Various teams fight for control and things go to very low level.
Career growth is luck factor here. Competence is much secondary. If you butter your boss for long time then he may have mercy on you to give you promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire all lower and middle management. They are just puppets being promoted.

    The pay is ok, but they expect you to work long hours, with multiple deliverables; all of which are "high" priority.

    Pros

    There used to be many pros to working at Verizon. However, now the only pros are if you are a non-management employee. Management is treated like slaves. One positive - 50% match to your 401K.

    Cons

    If you are management, they no longer pay into your pension. Management is constantly being laid off. Organizations have an ongoing quarterly objective to reduce their number of management employees by 10%. In the past five years, over 50,000 management employees have been laid off. It is amazing how they keep this information from going public. No one wants to get promoted, because they know it will only mean having no life and more stress. The company has changed dramatically over the past 10 years. They used to treat management with respect. Now they consistantly give management the short end of the stick because they are giving everything away to non-management/union employees. However, with the state of the economy, they are being offered packages to leave the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire! You are out of touch with your corporate objectives and your employees.
