    Disappointing compared to how you would imagine a leading wireless company would operate!

    Pros

    Being a part of the top company in the industry. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is abundant and you cannot get anything done in a logical manner because of redtape. Not the place to work if you want to follow common sense.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the trenches and see how badly your management teams communicate. Top down ony works if the info is actually sent down the pipeline!

    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 Management

    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.
