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

    Pros

    Excellent learning opportunity for new college hires. Everyone was friendly and I was able to find multiple mentors to to enrich my experience.

    Cons

    Layoffs.... They started the college hiring a few years ago to refresh the workforce because they haven't hired in years. Being one of those college hires as they slowly layoff others on your team every quarter is an awkward experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote talent and do not play the Verizon game where everything takes years to do.

    Current Employee - Experience Specialist in Columbia, SC
    Current Employee - Experience Specialist in Columbia, SC

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good and usually overtime is not a problem, 50+ hours is double overtime so $40/hr is obtainable after a few years. Very up beat environment with goals to obtain and contests to win.

    Cons

    Hours are rough, there is no set schedule and if you have a family you may as well accept the fact that you will see them maybe 10-15 hours a week. To promote you have to be a yes person and do tasks that are useless to the everyday business practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on the business, not the games.
