    My Ideal Job

    Graphic Designer (Current Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsIn my particular dept, we're not micromanaged. Our managers trust us to handle our projects and manage our schedules as we need. This is a big morale boost. I love working in a leading edge industry, and Verizon is at the front. Verizon is very professionally run, on the ball, great people to work with. I love coming to work - I don't hate Mondays here!

    ConsVerizon/telecom industry... evolves at a faster pace than other industries, so it can be volutile, and at times worrisome. They have big and small layoffs almost monthly.

    Good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsBenefits are good and the area was nice. Upper management seemed disconnected from day to day activities. Overall good expericene

    ConsUpper Management detached from actual operations of the department. Not many opportunities for advancement within depaertment or into other areas of the organization. Limited opportunities for cross functional training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore open forums for employee feedback, company wide meetings a plus in order to get a pulse on the overall organization

    No growth unless you are good in politics

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat benefits especially health care and 401k are very good.
    Telecommuting - You have good flexibility to work from home.

    ConsThis is very political place. Various teams fight for control and things go to very low level.
    Career growth is luck factor here. Competence is much secondary. If you butter your boss for long time then he may have mercy on you to give you promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire all lower and middle management. They are just puppets being promoted.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
