I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than a year

Pros

Compensation was good, but came at a price.

Cons

Working for Verizon Wireless was one of the worst experiences I have had in my professional life. There is no direction, and no guidance, and you are held accountable for everything that is given to you, even though you are not told how to do your job. The management will try to pile on as much work as you and your team are able to handle, and then add more, and then will hold you accountable if the work is not done on time. There is also preferential treatment. If you are an employee you will always be treated better, and will get the better projects. Also, if you are a Muslim, you will be treated badly. You will be treated better if you are Caucasian. One more the thing, the hours are extremely long, so do not hope to maintain a personal life. My best advice is do not work there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should be replaced by people who understand proper processes. They are horrible people, who will stab you in the back given a chance.

    Pros

    Very structured willingness to help if you need it. This is a company where they dont fire you you fire yourself. The reason I say this is you can mess up and they still will coach you and develop you.I really miss this company ...I was laid off and not able to relocate...

    Cons

    None this was a good job
