Current Employee - Manager in Bellevue, WA

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

Pros

Exciting cutting edge business. Great people who rally together to work towards a common goal. Management is supportive. Career opportunities and growth exist for those in non-management role base on individual contribution. Love being able to work for a business that has meaning and oeople value the service when they need it the most.

Cons

Difficult to find a work life balance, but you can say that about most companies. Opportunities are limited once you're in management and job postings are just a formality.

    Good company to work for considering wireless, but not Telecom as a whole.

    Cutting edge technology, large capital investments to stay on the bleeding edge. Mostly highly-skilled workers that keep you on your toes.

    Disorganized management and groups. Lack of processes. Slow to remove outdated equipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline processes, standardize workflows, consolidate tools.

    Current Employee - Business Account Executive

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, progressive company with room for career growth. Competitive salary and bonus structure. Change is constant, which makes for a dynamic work environment.

    Cons

    Very long training cycle. Training is 4 weeks (travel required), and this is difficult for anyone with a family, animals etc. Business reps battle retail for business leads and activations (no dual compensation for activations).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include a dual compensation for business leads from retail. Not a split commission - business reps should be fully compensated and retail should receive a bonus. Business reps are required to support the customer after the sale, including the NPS score. Retail is not equipped to handle businesses, but they try not to send leads because they will lose the sale.
