    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Verizon has a terrific range of solutions to offer the enterprise business market. As an employee, I benefit from strong brand recognition, although the consumer brand sometimes gets in the way of our reputation as a strong enterprise player. I find the compensation and benefits very competitive for the marketplace.

    Cons

    It's difficult to come from the outside, especially from outside of the telecom industry. There are many processes, acronyms and standards that are assumed by the existing staff.

    Pros

    Good Pay, benefits and I am non-union. Healthcare is very affordable, good matching 401k.

    Exposure to big network environments is challenging.

    Cons

    Always a crunch to provide the most for the money. Customer expectations are set very high and you are not always in the best position to fulfill them. Customer can become very frustrated and not nice to deal with.

    There are many antiquated process and systems, makes it difficult to compete tasks that should be simple. Like ordering pens, cables, or get a phone hooked up.

    Constant org changes.

    Advice to Management

    More technical people and less paper and process pusher. Empower employee's to help customers, don't make every process require VP approval. For example, I need VP approval for a 800 dollar expense report, or to get a cell phone replace. Just too much red tape, I hope it saves money.
