    Pros

    If you are in one of the departments that still focuses on innovation rather than cost cutting, you'll have he opportunity to work with leading edge technologies.

    Cons

    If you happen to be in a department that is shrinking, ie Customer Care, prepare for for a miserable experience... layoffs, cutbacks, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a very close look at who has been promoted to a management position, there are few in that role who are truly capable of handling the responsibility.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless

    Pros

    Salaries are very competitive and you can make a good living.
    Overall benefits..i.e. Medical/401k/stock/bonuses/tuition reimbursement are fantastic
    Some nice people to work with

    Cons

    You are not a person but another object within the company. There is no work/life balance even though they like to say there is. There is a lot of favortism and advancement is mostly based on who you know. The stress is too much because you take work home so you really never have time off. There is very little encouragement or praise. The environment is like being back in high school, too much gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees more and find out how things really work in retail. Learn to be more friendly with employees.
