    Pros

    Promotion, benefits, great team. Work life balance.

    Cons

    Shipping jobs out of the country. Closing departments after those departments helped build the business by gaining and keeping customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. They have their minds made up. They don't car what the low level employees think.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working there it was very active, plenty of chances to rise up in the ranks, and the employees were great to work with. The pay and benefits were competitive and improve with experience and more.

    Cons

    Some of the difficulties at the time were being thrown in situations that required a bit more technical expertise in a high customer to employee ratio. However flawed it may have been, they realized the importance of stabilizing customer service alongside their technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and great customer services keeps a company golden.
