    I have been working at Verizon Wireless

    Pros

    Verizon is a great company if you have a family and need benefits. The education expense is refunded/ or advanced up to $8500. Great place to knock out multiple degrees..

    Cons

    Remember not to get caught up in drinking too much of the Verizon Kool-Aid. Always remember that Verizon is a corporation. Profit first, you last. If your able to consistently hit or exceed your monthly quota, then your in heaven. If you are not then your life will be a living hell!!!! Trust me!!! Verizon will find a away to get rid of you. You will have to learn very quickly to swim with the sharks or get eaten.!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming others and take responsibility for your performance. In sports teams fire under performing coaches, not replace players. Stop protecting these cowards at the expense of real men and women that value hard work.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless

    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.
