    Pros

    Outstanding & professional peer group & interdepartmental teams

    company-wide downsizing & no loyalty from senior management

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

    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.

    Pros

    Great Salary, Good benefits. This is one of the top communications companies in the world. Not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    Associate employees could go on strike every several years. Not a great feeling of job security. Potential to be transferred anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Give us the ability to do the jobs that we want to do and to go the path that we want to travel.

    Pros

    Immediate management team is awesome. Family centric, flexible and supportive. Benefits are pretty awesome as well: bonus structure, yearly raises, 401k match, year end stock bonus, etc.

    Cons

    VZ's direction is not known by anyone which doesn't do me and my family any good. I really like working here but with so much uncertainty, I'd be neglectful if I did not consider employment elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing
