    I have been working at Verizon full-time

    Pros

    Compensation. Job Security. Probably one of the better retail positions you can get. Lot's of room for advancement if you're a performer.

    Cons

    There isn't much of a work/life balance. Really long hours. High pressure sales environment that not every is built for.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership team at Verizon was one of the things I loved most about Verizon. My district manager put me on the fast track to management within 8 months of being employed. If you make them money, they'll take care of you.

    I worked at Verizon (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    verizon overall was a good company to work for providing good benefits and internal training programs.

    Cons

    Professional development is an area of weaknesses as leaders in leadership roles are lacking the necessary skills for development.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership training and professional development training are needed to deter employees from leaving.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent leadership, endless opportunities if properly motivated. If you work hard and are continue to look for opportunities the possibilities are endless

    Cons

    Low work-Life balance, not properly compensated for level of responsibility. The company is in a cost savings effort and it is difficult to get adequately compensated for your level of responsibility. If you promote within you cannot negotiate for a fair wage for the new position, if you take a large promotion you will be under paid for several years.

    Advice to Management

    Dont hamstring your employees and not pay them fair wages for their level of responsibility just because they are an internal hire.

    Pros

    Room to grow. Company promotes almost entirely from within which helps for a great career path. Challenging to grow reps careers and see them advance in their career.

    Cons

    Schedule is not set so you have to plan your life events in advance to keep a steady work life balance. Long hours 45+ and Solutions Managers do not get time and a half for over 40 hours.
