Former Employee - Software Developer in Warren, NJ

I worked at Verizon Wireless as a contractor (more than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A great company to work for, they provide top notch technology and are a industry leader. Pay is pretty good for an entry level position and can provide excellent benefits and work experience.

    Cons

    Advancement takes awhile and the hours can be stressful. The general public views you the invdivdual as Verizon and takes out all their frustrations on you. It would be a lot better if the hours weren't so long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at top performers, it seems like a good old boys club at times. If you don't foster the right relationships it can hamper your career progress within the company.
