    I worked at Verizon Wireless

    Pros

    The commute was good and the paychecks were issued promptly. Other than that, there were no factors I would consider "pros".

    Cons

    Treating contractors (we are not even considered consultants) like dirt is hard wired into VZW's DNA. I've never seen such a corporate culture this dysfunctional. Productive staff were overloaded with more and more work while slackers were allowed to coast. Of course renewal decisions had no bearing on productivity. Managers rose to their positions by virtue of tenure and not merit. There is a very lean management structure which might work in an organization with competent staffers but not one staffed by hacks. Long term managers are known to berate and bully the rank and file with impunity. Even long term well connected contractors throw their weight around. They are attuned to the poor job market and are acting accordingly because they can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all the ATT and OTC legacy middle managers and reboot the culture, purging it of ll the anal retentive territorial nonsense. Institute a robust PMO.

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless

    Pros

    Benefits, vacation time and OK pay

    Cons

    No personal time, constant changing schedule, cannot use all the given vacation, no room for growth, no respect, working harder and harder every month and making less and less. Many evenings worked, favoritism, no work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking care of yourselves and take care of your employees who will in turn take care of you and the company. Also, man up when you think the company is out of line.
