    I worked at Verizon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Time off and benefits are great! I felt like the company took care of you as a person.

    Cons

    It was hard to find meaning in the position I was in. As a consultant, your deliverables were to clients, who often-times didn't act on your recommendations. To Verizon, they were only interested in the hours you billed. For me, that makes it difficult to find meaning in your day to day work.

    Pros

    Forward thinking. Work hard and you'll reap the rewards....

    Cons

    Long hours as an executive but highly compensated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There isn't any negative advice since the harder you work; you do have a chance for promotion. Hours are long but expected as an executive in almost any company. I loved the company but had Illness in the family took a job with Frontier. I really wanted to stay with Verizon. Great Company.

    I have been working at Verizon as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The reason to work in Verizon Company because the values of the company increasing day after day. In addition. time -off policies and the personal growth are great.

    Cons

    By working at Verizon, the work -life is pretty much balanced. Also compensation is fare according to budget and it could have been better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A main reason might be the perceived need to establish both the budget and the deadline well before the scope of the project is fully understood
