Pros

Best benefits around! Promote within 98% of the time. It's a hard place to work...but the pay and benefits are worth it.

Cons

For the entry level...Retail Hours.

Advice to Management

Be prepared to work your butt off...but it's worth it.

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very strong stable company with a bright future, that pays well and takes care of its employees

    Cons

    VZW moves managers around from department to department to give them experience with other teams, but looses great insight from having unqualified people in the positions they are in from a technical standpoint.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Warren is a good location in NJ. Easy commute. Decent facility. Has cafeteria. Parking garage. People (non-management) are great to work with. Young, energetic workforce. Decent projects (Java shop & mobile development) Verizon Wireless is doing fairly well as a company so no layoffs.

    Cons

    Required to work 10 hr days, minimum. Verizon in general pays on the low side. Management is incompetent. No clue how to run projects. The answer to every problem with every project: Work more hours. No space at facility. Some people without cubes. Too many contractors, more of them than employees. High turnover in contractors. No knowledge retention. Management does not understand the meaning of work/life balance. No such thing.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring managers, look outside for fresh ideas. Do not only promote from within. By doing that things will never change and it will continue to be a sweat shop environment.
