    VERIZON WAS THE MOST POORLY MANAGED COMPANY; WORST WORK CLIMATE, WORST COMPENSATION

    Senior Brand Director (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsLarge Telecommunications Company with fast moving business agenda.

    ConsStaffed with mediocre "managers" and underqualified personnell. Culture is Anti Change. No EEO Controls of any kind. Employees overworked and grossly underpaid. "Stars" are buried rather than protected and advanced.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart over. Get rid of the dead weight. Hire confident, decisive, very smart managers. Put controls in place for EEO matters and have that report to the CEO. Customer service is terrible. Climate not conducive to innovation. TERRIBLE advertising and branding. No strategic forcus.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
