    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.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work timings,Exposure to critical projects early in career.very few good project with good teammates.No bench. Everyone is on a project.Good brand name associated with your Resume.If you work hard and your manager and subordinates are good and say in upper management then you grow at fast pace.

    Cons

    Company policies sucks. no reverse feedback mechanism.lot of favoritism by managers, autocracy by managers,indirectly forcing employees to work for more than 12 hrs,less Job security,Incompetent senior management in India, employees rated high for performance are not promoted but only employees who don't question the actions of supervisors are promoted. Utterly suicidal, consequences are already there to see, attrition rate is over 23%,People are just running away. Once you know the reality, u just want to run away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve management skills.Need transparency in management decisions. job security and a friendly approach from management, HR, security etc is what is needed. don't exploit employees.promotions and hikes should be based on performance of the employee.360 degree review is needed so that employee can also rate his/her managers and subordinates

    I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have been with Verizon India (aka) Verizon Data Services India and have also travelled down to US through them a few times. Best in process and HR-friendly team. Utmost importance to security sometimes may be construed negatively by employees as impediments but we ought to think it helps significantly in the long run.

    Cons

    A heaven can not have anything negative and no negatives is in fact the limitation. :) I love you, Verizon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys rock. I would try relocating to India and join my VDSI family back as soon as possible.
