    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Integrity of leadership. Community involvement. Support of Veterans. Verizon Foundation supporting many charitable organizations. Environment that encourages employee contribution to the organization as well as their community. A true open door policy to leadership. Individual and team recognition. Total benefits package includes very competitive salary, tuition assistance, matching 401K contributions, healthcare. This was my experience and largely the reason I was there for almost 30 years (through multiple company acquisitions and mergers).

    Cons

    There are really very few negatives worth comment. However, like any company there are issues that have to be addressed periodically. Again as with any company no matter the size there is a small percentage of leadership that do not live up to the credo including integrity. There are staffing decisions that are not always based on the best qualified candidate and I think that would be the biggest issue that needs to addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make integrity number 1 in the credo and in practice. Work harder to ensure all levels of management truly live that credo.
