    Pros

    I worked at the VZW HQ office in Basking Ridge. It was very professional, but not too stuffy. Business Casual and more casual on Fridays Fun summer music and snacks events. . Excellent cafeteria. Healthful foods and tastings available. Contractors were mostly treated like employees (one-on-one meetings, leaving early) and were flexible.

    Cons

    Being a contractor there, you couldn't go to the gym or take advantage of any of the health screenings, including mammograms. Most likely, this was for insurance reasons.

    Advice to Management

    While contractors aren't employees, it would be nice to have training in additional to our job responsibilities.

    The structure of the corporation is to departmentalized and pins regions against each other to promote sales. This leads to a high stress environment always working towards beating a region instead of building up the company.
