I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 8 years)
I can't think of a single company in any line of business that can say they are as superior to their competition as Verizon is to the other cell carriers- trust me, I've worked for almost all of them! Better network doesn't even begin to describe it! As a salesperson, I don't lose business based on the competition. The only deals we seem to lose are based on companies not having the time or money to switch. They all want to. The pay is better than any of the other carriers I've worked for. The benefits are better, too. All in all, it's a darn near perfect place to work, except......
Bureaucracy and red tape are how we do things at Verizon. If that doesn't bother you, then do everything you can to get a job here. It drives me absolutely bat-shtuff crazy!! The constant politics is ridiculous, too. 10 years ago, under the first CEO (Denny Striegl) we were a real entrepreneurial company. But now...we're the epitome of "big company" culture. If that doesn't bother you either...then do everything you can to get a job here!!
Advice to Management
They wouldn't listen if I had any real advice, so I'll just say keep up the GREAT work!! And keep paying us like you are!!
