    Pros

    The pay and benefits were good. and that's pretty much the only good thing i can say.

    Cons

    Because a majority of my coworker were in another state i ended up feeling completely isolated. There's no real training so even months in to this job there were basic things I didn't know about. It seems like this company has no idea what the concept of "work life balance" is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to put someone in a management position please give them a little training. My last few months were miserable because my new manager had no idea what he was doing.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large organization with large vendor relationships. Lots of locations.

    Cons

    Poor management at the top level. Frequent layoffs, outsourcing to overseas locations which is reducing customer service. The company is more focused on cost savings due than anything else due to rapid lowering customer prices. The wireless division is the only one that is not suffering from losses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to retain good engineers in the US.

    Old school management style with favoritism

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at Verizon full-time

    Pros

    Benefits in general for a large size company

    Cons

    Too much favoritism at the management level one of groups, you are being recognition for who you know and what you know. No benefits are worth for this kind of work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refrain old timers at the management level from making decision on their own.
