Pros

Very high exposure to cutting edge projects, benefits are good. One of the few companies to give bonuses during the recession. Also receive profit sharing and long term incentives which is a nice second bonus if you're lucky to have gotten one. People are great to work with.

Cons

If you work for a manager that was either laid off or transffered from Verizon landline BE CAUTIOUS. Landline managers a bunch of idiot micro managers. Landline managers should stay out of wireless because the cultures clash and they just do not belong. Landline managers don't know squat about wireless technologies. Its so sad to see landline managers trying to act like they know what they are doing but everyone sees through the fakeness.

Advice to Management

IF you're from telco, do yourself a favor and learn about the wireless technologies. Stop micro managing your people to the point where you don't like the font being used in a specific presentation. Learn the wireless culture or else your employees will start to hate you.

    Pros

    The benefits are exceptional! Verizon provides tuition assistance, backup childcare, medical, dental, vision, etc.

    Cons

    Reps are undercompensated and underappreciated. The preasure trickles down from management to reps to produce unrealistic results. There is no work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    To remain consistant. Have faith in the training that your reps receive and try not to micromanage so much. Possibly offer a more consistant schedule.

    Pros

    You get a discount on your phone service, training is good. People are nice to work with, the stores are clean and keep nice.

    Cons

    there are no pros, the money is terrible, the hours are terrible, the managers ares too young, they dont care about work/life balance and the main reason for face to face business is to deal with complaining customers

    Advice to Management

    Higher older managers who can be professional and responsible, stop promoting people for who they know and not what they know or how they perform.
