    I worked at Verizon as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a Verizon Intern you are treated like an employee instead of an Intern.

    Paid Internship.

    Great feel of a corporate environment

    Cons

    8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday - Friday

    You're held accountable for all work that you do.

    Try not to ask too many questions about projects assigned to you.
