Former Employee - National Account Manager in Central Park, NJ

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

Pros

great pay if your good in sales, a lot of room for growth, you can make your own schedule, if you time manage properly you wiill not have to put in over 50 hrs a week, great benefits and incentives if you want it bad enough, work smart not hard and you will see your rewards

Cons

- very clicky
- if your not "in" the click then you will not survive the company and no room for growth
- very aggressive environment if your not use to commission sales and constant changes in KPIs
- some senior management will never change their style in management or evolve to better tactics (ex. lack of communication, "old school" values, god complex)
- some core values do not mean the same to those in powerful positions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

utilize positive coaching. maintain training skills needed as a manager to better communicate with your employees, do not play favorites and pass up a good hard working employee because of "your" inconveniences.

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is stability here. Employees are rarely fired or leave the company.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth with the company. many employees recommend family members for employment resulting in a "family company" many employees feel they are looked over for promotions and transfers because of this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the hiring process needs to be revamped
