    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 a year

    Pros

    They really take care of their own. Benefits are great, pay is good.

    Cons

    "Results driven company" so your boss may be a great sales person, but a terrible manager of people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe promote intelligence rather cold blooded sellers.
