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

Pros

Salary and short term incentives are some of the best in the industry. Benefits are good. Work hours may or may not be demanding depending on the job and project. They encourage a diverse work force. They also encourage working in various job roles to gain a breath of experiences. It can be rather easy to move around on the wireless side of the company but in telecom side it takes a lot more work. As management has changed over the years, it is becoming easier to move between jobs and company units. There is a lot of autonomy in my work group.

Cons

Upper management doesnt spend enough time with the working levels. The leadership is weak in that sense. It makes the working teams not feel like their management understands or acknowledges their good work or their challenges. Most people are not sure how to advance in the company or what it takes to move beyond management. Some organizations are more focused on the results than the people. Not all cross functional teams are transparent making some work difficult to complete in a reasonable time. A lot of processes lead to long lead times to deliver a product or service.

Advice to Management

Spend more time with the working level teams. Develop more networking opportunities for eager employees regardless of age or tenure.

    Overall a great experience over last few years it seemed they were looking for ways to remove tenured older workers.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was excellent and benefits were outstanding. The jobs were challenging and rewarding for most part. Initial training was excellent and thoroughly prepared you for job.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition for job well done. Good old boy network prevalent in area management and promotion opportunities. Lack of follow up and meeting of promises by upper management at times. A subtle discrimination against older experienced employees.

    Advice to Management

    Look more closely at some of you area leadership and have more skip level and listen to what the front lines are truly saying. Be aware of the value of experience in tenured workers.
