I have been working at Verizon Wireless as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Outstanding physical facilities, beautiful campus, excellent dining hall, fantastic co-workers (running out of adjectives!), a great place to be and to work.

Cons

Glacial pace of advancement opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The fear of increasing headcount should not be blinding the company to its day to day needs. Hiring contractor after contractor to fill the same role due to ongoing work is less cost effective, decreases morale, and loses talent gratuitously.

Recommends
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits but nothing great for a company of its size.
    If you have a cushy job you can leave on time 99% of time. Good for working moms.

    Cons

    Un or under educated crowd. Some managers are uneducated even at the director. Unsophistication shows everywhere. Not much respect for employees regardless of their tenure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying a good salary so you can attract sophisticated management from other companies.
