    Former Employee - Network Engineer in New York, NY

    I worked at Verizon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Full tuition coverage and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Big disconnect between lower and upper management. There is not much opportunity for growth. Getting promoted is all about who you know and not what you know. As a manager you may find yourself avoiding layoffs about once or twice a year while watching some union workers without a job function not having to even think about layoffs. They are also outdated with regards to pay and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bridge the gap of communication between lower and upper management and investigate the current process of how people get hired including the interview process.
