    I have been working at Verizon Telematics (More than a year)

    Pros

    Verizon Telematics is in an excellent position to capitalize on two key opportunities – Internet of Things (IoT) and connected vehicles. The new leadership team is capable and forward-thinking, with significant experience from Verizon Wireless and other top-tier organizations, and is making the right investments in employee leadership training, product management and development methodologies.

    Verizon’s backing is helping with anything from sourcing to marketing, product design and advertising, so the products I have been working on have improved noticeably over the last year. It has been very rewarding to see designs I have developed featured on national television.

    The products are interesting. I like that this isn’t just a website or collection of mobile apps. There is a lot to cover when innovating here – device design improvements based on new wireless network technology, packaging, new mobile app features that tie to the information the devices collect from the cars, product distribution, and decisions on what to build next.
    The people are smart and get things done quickly; this seems to be attracting other new people who are smart and get things done quickly. There is opportunity to interact with the highest levels at Verizon, which has been great from a personal development and learning standpoint.

    Cons

    The company is in transition. Verizon made the acquisition to turn sound product concepts into sustainable, profitable solutions across three defined lines of business. A transition of this magnitude doesn’t come easily. A recent reorganization was – in my opinion - necessary to align the right resources with the right initiatives. This is now mostly behind us, with the new effort now on recruiting and hiring new resources with the latest development, design and management skills.

    On a related note, new teams are forming and learning to work together. This has created some conflict and created prioritization and implementation issues – even at higher levels. The teams are learning from this, though, and more progress has been made recently.

    There is a lot to learn. This is a fast-moving space, with many moving parts. I have had to put in extra hours to learn all of the system components – and still have a lot to discover. Not a place for someone who just wants to put in minimum effort and head home.

    Advice to Management

    This is new, uncharted territory, so there are many initiatives competing for attention, but it is extremely important to focus on a manageable number of the highest-priority items to succeed.

    Overall, the vision is in place and is improving as it is refined. Keep working to define and correctly prioritize the most important items, and the organization will keep moving in a good direction.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Verizon Telematics in February 2017.

    Interview

    This has been the most professional, well-managed, and enjoyable interview experience I've had in many years. From the easy of submitting my online profile, to the communication with recruiter, to the experience with the hiring manager -- I was/am very impressed.

    After submitting online profile, I heard from and spoke with recruiter over the phone. The following four-ish weeks consisted of a handful of phone conversations with hiring manager and other people on the team as well as one on-site interview. The entire time I was continually updated on the status, next steps, and anticipated timeline.
