    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent earning potential and benefits. Matched 401k up to 6% and 50% off bill discount. Also a discount on fios. Made over 70k as a solutions specialist

    Cons

    Hours can be overwhelming at times but it's retail. With overtime 70k a year is doable but your personal and social life will suffer a little.

    Advice to Management

    Management in general is great but also pushy at times because of aggressive sales goals
