    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    For the most part as a regional manager I have the autonomy to run my business as I see fit. The pay is unrivaled and the benefits are very good.

    Cons

    No company is perfect. At times there's too much red tape but I don't think that's uncommon for large companies.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay and work environment were top notch, as were the technologies used.

    Cons

    Contractors are readily let go, there is no reward or incentive for outstanding performance.

    Advice to Management

    Contractors need reassurances that their performance is acceptable.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Where else can you work from home full time with an awesome salary & great benefits? 20+ years here Having started in NY Telephone and working through the NYNEX, Bell Atlantic & Verizon days as well as striking out on my own for a while, I've found that Verizon is the place I want to be. I've had good & bad managers over the years (some very bad), but my current group is truly fantastic to work with/for. I feel like a valued member of the team... but even with that I still do not feel safe from the CONS listed below......

    Cons

    The ever present threat of layoffs has made looking over your shoulder and worrying about job security has made it very difficult to have peace of mind. It's clear that the folks laid off are not always "the bad ones"... many times it simply comes down to dollars and cents. In 2015 so far, I'm aware of 8-10 current & former coworkers laid off from different departments.... one with 20+ years of service another with 30+

    Advice to Management

    stop the layoffs. It's draining talent & morale while making the rest of us quite anxious

    I have been working at Verizon (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Verizon for 20 Years as a union worker. Learned a great profession. Learned to install and repair landline service to home and businesses. Good company until NYNEX purchased Bell Atlantic.

    Cons

    Management is more interested in the outcome of the numbers. Micro-management of its workers has created a hostile environment, US verse THEM. No progressive discipline with 30 working day suspension the norm. Upper management over priced and ruthless. Don't want union workers anymore which built the company to what it is today. SHAMEFUL Treat your customer as a valued asset. Roll out FIOS in NJ per the statewide franchise agreement. Keep your promise to your legal obligations. Can't trust any manager or upper management. They will lie to you but tell them to trust them then do anything they want to meet their needs not their employees. Couldn't want to retire and get away from them. Life is good now. Just feel real sorry for those who still work there.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth with those who built the great company that can produce a billion dollars a month in profits. Respect and care about your works as human beings not as a cog in a machine. Work with the UNION not fighting them at every turn or cover.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good pay and benefits provided due to years of collective bargaining with CWA.

    Cons

    Verizon is constantly trying to reduce the number of employees that it has to provide these benefits to while forcing the remaining employees to pick up the slack.

    Advice to Management

    honor your employees and stop making excuses on why you " need" to reduce their headcount and revoke their benefits despite being Very profitable due to their hard work and dedication.
