Depressing. Morale is Negative

Client Executive (Current Employee)
Ashburn, VA

I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPay and compensation are good.

ConsAll levels of management are incompetent, to put it bluntly.

Advice to Senior ManagementStopping shaking the salesforce up all the darn time! This new sales alignment is a joke and you have killed my compensation for 2014.
I do not need six different managers asking me the same question over and over.
My manager is a micromanager and clueless to boot. Three calls a week to review funnel. Managing out of SFDC. STOP IT! Let me do my job and get out of my way!
Verizon continues to RIF good, key people and offshore to Manila which is just pissing our clients off to no end.
The morale here is shot. Process paralysis is killing this organization. Front line sales, like myself, have no pull in the company and no way of getting through the nightmare of processes.
If you're new to Verizon and in sales, get ready to essentially be left on your own to figure out how to get anything done around here.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Regressive place to work at

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Ashburn, VA

I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe only reason to work here would be the salary and the ability to change positions without leaving the company.

ConsThe work culture is awful, the ways of working are regressive, the leadership is not the best, poor planning, feels like a typical telco company of the 70s.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the culture to attract young and bright talent.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Decent pay, heavy politics

Manager (Former Employee)
Ashburn, VA

I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 10 years

Prosgreat pay, challenging, great group and teams below Sr Management. I maintain contact with many coworkers years after Verizon. Also - the learning experience both technically and culturally is a huge plus.

ConsLong hours, hard or impossible to advance unless you have friends higher up. They will have big layoffs, but not reduce the workload, so the lucky ones that keep their jobs, get the work of 4 people piled on an already full workload

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to cut cost by reducing employees, understand you need to cut services as well. When you have a team, and you rif 75%, dont expect the same quantity and quality of work from the remaining team members.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Most disorganized, dysfunctional place I've ever worked

Managing Principal (Former Employee)
Ashburn, VA

I worked at Verizon full-time for more than a year

ProsCompensation was good. The location was great.

ConsVerizon reorganizes every 3 months (or more) and people are moved into roles that they aren't interested in and for which they have no qualifications. It doesn't seem to matter at Verizon - you will stay employed and may have absolutely nothing to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out who is doing what and stick to it for more than 3 months!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
