    I worked at Verizon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good, you have access to excellent training opportunities, employees are dedicated, and there are advancement opportunities available.

    Cons

    The advancement opportunities are available to East Coast based employees, typical connection based advancement, and directors are more concerned with their empires than how to effectively run their areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate the Directors rather than RIF entire departments. Rely less on outsourcing, as their loyalties are not with the customer, but with the outsourced.

    I worked at Verizon

    Pros

    The company paid very well. They did believe in and practice diversity.

    Cons

    However the company did not really appreciate it's blue collar workforce. If you weren't management you were screw.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was a dog fight and usually the candidate that kissed the butt or consistently ratted out his brothers or bought the right gifts got the promotion.
