I have been working at Verizon Wireless as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Generally a great place to work. Money is decent, benefits are pretty good (or will be once I go full time). It also seems like a lot of the people I work with really care about their work. I've found people to have integrity about their job, as in they seem to take ownership of what they do. Also it does seem like the company cares about its employees. I love working for the best in the industry and feel a sense of pride around that.

Cons

Very corporate environment - no t-shirts and slippers here. Also it's usually pretty quiet, which gets boring. Would love if it was more lively and startup-like. There's some talk of being more like a tech company, so hopefully that happens soon. Also, though I have usually worked with good people, there are (as in any place) underperformers. From what I hear, people usually don't get fired - it would be good to weed out the poor performers who drag down the team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Speed up the transition to a startup-like environment. An non-customer facing employee sitting in a cube has no need to be dressed up all the time.

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

    Pros

    Challenging and rewarding work.
    Excellent Benefits, and compensation.
    Great working environment, most of the people here are engaging and are problem solvers and enjoyable to work with.
    Loads of training and educational advantages to help advance your career.

    In this day and age when so many are jobless, I consider myself very fortunate to have been hired on with this company.
    I started out as a contractor in 2010 and by the end of 2011 became full time and am loving it.
    The team that I work with are a diverse group and offer a wealth of knowledge and are helpful and eager to help others to succeed.

    Cons

    Only con for me right now is I want to live closer to the office.
    Hope to remedy that soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the excellent work and continue to foster great leadership!
