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

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

    Pathetic work culture,if u suckup to your supervisor, u will grow very fast

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    ProsFlexible 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.

    ConsCompany 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 Senior ManagementImprove 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Heaven in India and US

    Architect (Former Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    ProsI 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.

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
