    Pros

    I like my direct coworkers. I can stop thinking about work once I leave work. Not as difficult as previous outside sales positions.

    Cons

    Cant live in east bay area on this kind of pay. For retail they apparently offer top pay yet I can not afford to rent a place on my own in this area off of this pay. Its always a fight to get a break (awarded by law in CA) or go to lunch on time. I cant stand a retail schedule in general. Its hard to get any consistency or have a life with these hours.

    Pros

    There's a nice social status working with Verizon. The benefits are good and the company has a good corporate structure.

    Cons

    These are more specific to the Pleasanton location, but the management within this office is very bad. The work, structure, schedules, and overall vision is very scattered. There are constant changes to schedules weekly, there is backstabbing from management talking about employees, which makes a lot of the employees uncomfortable. Management in this location are not receptive to employee suggestions for making it better. This location has a lot of turnover and feels like a training location. The morale at this location is very low and a big part of that is due to the management in this location.

    Advice to Management

    Many of the locations and the corporate office have a very positive vibe. This location is not run very well and seems to be getting worse. Walking into this location, a person can feel the negative vibe as the manager of this location just does not get it. The company as a whole is great, but this location needs to make adjustments.
