Current Employee - Sales Representative

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

Pros

Great environment and easy and fun work! Benefits are good and hourly wage is good as well!

Cons

Hard to find some but I guess commission could always be better

Current Employee - Optical Engineer

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

Pros

There are many growth opportunities, and your career path is truly what you make of it. During on boarding, as a new hire, everyone has been tremendously welcoming and open to answering questions.

Cons

It is difficult to know who is who, but this is the case for any big corporation.
