Got worse over time

Business Account Executive (Former Employee)

ProsVerizon has a very strong sales culture and long history of performance excellence. You will not have trouble competing in the marketplace with the quality of service they provide. The tools I was provided were also top notch.

ConsI worked at Verizon for 7 years and every year the compensation plans were changed but never for the better. They had a 300% cap on target commission, which capped earning potential.

Also, like many large corporations, there is a major disconnect from the front line sales associates and middle/upper management. In my particular market, they simply wanted "yes men" and discouraged voicing market trends/concerns.

Advice to Senior ManagementCapping commission at 300% creates a culture of "sand bagging" and limits the potential productivity of your sales associates. Why would you ever want a rep to stop selling because they reached their monthly max??

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
