    Pros

    Great bosses and work team

    Cons

    Unionized company. I lost my job due to lack of seniority. It doesn't matter if you are a consistent and good employee. Seniority wins everytime.

    Pros

    Great pay, awesome benefits, I have a great boss and co workers

    Cons

    Like any business, job, or career, there are perks and there are pains. The pains at my job vary from day to day and most don't last more than a week. Overall, I can't say anything too bad about Verizon, although there are times where the stockholders are all the upper management cares about, and in business terms, is the right way to go.

    Advice to Management

    Incorporate all employees into the same contract.

    Pros

    Total compensation and benefits package for salaried IT employees is competitive if not better than market.

    Cons

    Leadership is constantly looking for ways to save or make a quick dollar versus long term strategic decisions (past 5 years).

    Advice to Management

    Find something else to sell besides mobile services to enterprise businesses. Chasing the mobile entertainment market is a short term money maker. Everyone else is doing it. I hope you can manage to leap forward ahead of the competition and deliver a quality product to market worth the prices you charge.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good people, most everyone. Was there to work and never had any major issues with anyone.

    Cons

    Its a call center, so there are lots of numbers to be met. Work load can be overwhelming and spectrum of knowledge. Needed is wide. Pretty stressful.

    Advice to Management

    There should me more parties and everyone should get cake for their birthdays. Facities could be improved upon.

    Pros

    Great benefits package, 4% matching 401K, yearly bonuses based on company performance.

    Cons

    It is difficult to keep up with the continual process and software changes. Day to day, things change and often putting the cart before the horse. Lack of upward mobility and opportunities as Verizon attempts to redefine itself. As cutbacks and layoffs continue, more and more work and added responsibilities are added to each employee.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your employees more and spend time getting to know their pain points so that this information may be shared with upper management.
