    Pros

    Outstanding & professional peer group & interdepartmental teams

    Cons

    company-wide downsizing & no loyalty from senior management

    Advice to Management

    Retain your long-term employees. They are better trained, more experienced & more loyal than you think.

    Pros

    The pay is great considering the work. For the most part, you are entrusted to do your work without the constant involvement of management.

    Cons

    The work schedule has begun to have a lot of flux. With children in school and daycare, it's difficult to be so flexible.

    Pros

    It's a very big company to work for with benifits, good pay and advancement if you wanted it. I had a great career at verizon and enjoyed working with most people there.

    Cons

    It's a very big company to work for, which can be frustrating at times. In my whole career i meet very few of the upper managment.

    Advice to Management

    go out in the field and meet the people that work for you. There are people in this company that are motivated by a positive word now and then.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits but not if the company had it's way. This is union negotiated and a fading pro.

    Cons

    This is a company you must watch your back with. Dot the i's and cross the T's, document EVERYTHING, CYA!!!, job security, CWA union or lack of, forced overtime. Big greedy company, all pocket and no heart.

    Advice to Management

    They like to rift and relocate management and associates without notice. No job security.
