I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Compensation and benefits are good

Cons

Can be a dictatorship environment. When asked for your oppinion what is really being asked is to agree with the perspective of Senior Management or legacy Verizon (this is how we have always done it), if not you will be on the fast track out the door.

Advice to Management

Follow the directives from Senior Management and do not go against time proven ways of how Verizon has done business.
Don't trust anyone, even if they seem like your best friend, especially if they are legacy Verizon. They will often talk bad about a Senior Manager acting as a mole to get your oppinion and relay it back to the Senior Manager. It is best to keep a neutral stance.
All strategic objectives are set with plenty of padding. Senior Management do not miss objectives, there is always a way to adjust the reporting by shifting results from one area to another.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, and pay. You will not find a representative job paying this much.

    Cons

    No promotions, poor management. Sneaky work environment. Cut throat individuals. Liars, Liars

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Do not say to follow the book and then harass people when they are not making their sales or force them to do things unethical.
