Not for everyone

Telesales Representative (Current Employee)
Orangeburg, NY

I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time for less than a year

ProsAmazing benefits, seriously, like the best in the country. Room for growth....if you do well.

ConsYou are a number, they dont care about family issues or anything else. Very numbers centric company, if you don't hit quota no one can save you. Commission structure has changed 3 times in 10 months....always for the worse.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Been here for 7yrs... well... The more I grow with the company the more on the fence I become

ProsDefinitely provides decent work life balance (pending on your positon at least). In most IT positions you'll find it pretty reasonable (remote work, flexible days pending on work load).

ConsSomething about the salaries do leave something to be desired. I suppose if you start in an area with a higher cost of living you'll maximize your earning potential. Then if you transfer to an area with a lower cost of living you'd be pretty set. But forbid you start in a lower cost of living market (like Midwest) then transfer to somewhere like NYC. You need to make sure you negotiate the a cost of living adjustment or fair market salary. Or you'll be playing catch up for the rest of your career.

I was dissatisfied for quite some time and was in the top 5 of the sales reps for the first 2 years.

Telesales (Former Employee)
Orangeburg, NY

I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThey offer great benefits. For other departments, the bonuses and employee satisfaction are much higher.

ConsSince I started, they wound up cutting the commission in half and capping. The sales team is the most micro managed I've ever seen. Some managers are unprofessional. Very hard to move out of sales. Keep in mind this is ONLY the sales atmosphere I am speaking of.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe director should listen to the reps more to improve the morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork-life balance, Good benefits, secure jobs

ConsI saw a lot people doing nothing and since managers didn't understand tech jargons they didn't do anything either.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey are tech company, its culture should be more focus on that.
