    I have been working at Verizon full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. Good pay+bonus+fancy stuffs if you are manager or higher.
    2. Laptops, headphones, and all accessories like pen, notepad, Gym, Stapler, Courier Covers, tea, snacks are provided
    3. Shuttle and cab facilities are helpful
    4. Ok if you are a fresher or have low experience like 1 or 2 yrs

    Cons

    1.Stale projects and arrogant management
    2.Developer got to report to 5+ TLs, and 3+ managers at the same time.
    3.Even a simple leave requests will result in escalation if you don't get approval from all of your leads and managers.
    4.Work life balance will be laughed at and terribly screwed.
    5.Will squeeze the juice out of you and will be fired silently and immediately if your managers don't like you. 6.Wonderful politics because of downsizing and cost cuts.
    7.rare/no onsite opportunities
    8.Employee suicide rates are high and have witnessed news being curbed from leaking out to media by management.
    9.Disdainful culture.
    10. Employees will be valued based on their pay scale. The less the pay, the more desirable the profile. Anybody with 10+years of exp and 15+lakhs of package - US Management screws them first and pushes them out of the system immediately. Have witnessed 2 such occurances
    11. Employees loyalty will be laughed at. Definitely not the place to stick around if you are getting older

    Pros

    Office culture, Good work life balance.

    Cons

    No promotions. Too much politics in VDSI. No vision for Business Analysts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business Analysts are not used and there is no growth plan for them. The top VDSI think developers are everything and business analysis is a support work.

    Pros

    Heavy Package. If they see you important they will raise your salary like anything.

    Cons

    you will be out of the market once you join. They use very old technologies, they dont even think of anything new. They will suck all blood out of you. The worst part they will make you think as a marketing executive to come up with new ideas to increase profit which normally upper management does. the time you enter the office, it will be chat support right from the start, it will be irritating and you cant even think anything new. Atlast you will feel very tired end-of-day, if you turn back and see what you did, there will be nothing.

    Pros

    Good work life balance.
    Better social responsibility.
    Environment friendly.
    Better work environment.

    Cons

    Due to ineffecient management, few people are getting high amount of work load.
    You shouldn't expect proper hike unless you work as a developer who is putting effort for more than 10 hours a day minimum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please understand what's being done by your subordinates instead of just seeking the status.
