Pros

Good pay, good company, great benefits, room for advancement (prior to the economy challenges of today)

Cons

retail hours (horrible & changing), management style is poor & problems are never addressed head on, selling with integrity is supposed to be the core of who VZW is but the demands that are pressured on the sales reps makes it almost impossible to sell with integrity & meet company objectives & goals. so in order to sell with integrity, you will not most likely hit your numbers to get paid. frustrating!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

walk a mile in the reps shoes- for one month to see how ridiculous the demands that management put on employees. If we did everything asked of us, a sales transaction would take 45 minutes each. No possible way to handle the traffic in store and not angry managers/coworkers/customers.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Latest Technology to work with. Good budget available to spend on tools, software and hardware. Opportunities to test the latest technilogy with major vendors. 50% employee discount on Cell phone plans and Features.

    Cons

    No Career Growth Opportunities. Employees are protective of theior knowledge and won't share information. Very resistant to changes. Management doesn't communicate the changes clearly. Heard about many cases of employee dissatisfaction relaetd to goal setting, performanace reviews and merit increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Career Growth Opportunities should be presented and explained to the employees clearly. Make sure employees are sharing their knowledge and encourage team work.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package and pay. Ability to move in lower level positions but very difficult to move up the ladder.

    Cons

    A young company that has imported its culture from its parent company. Slow moving and not very bright management hold back success of this organizational unit within what is otherwise a good company. Outside experience is ignored almost completely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change or be doomed to have your job functions shipped off when the company realizes just how much money is being spent in your organization.
