No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The salary is good. The benefits is good. The vacation time is good.

Cons

Hostal environment, very tense, very uncomfortable, unappreciated, no compromised, low morale, not knowing whats going to happen next, do what I say or die company.

Advice to Management

Stop treating your employees like emotionless robots and try acting like human beings.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've had success; learned a lot; and patiently waiting for a better opportunity within the company.

    Cons

    The merger of GTE & Bell Atlantic really changed the company...it's not a company of taking care of their employees, anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees...all of your employees, not just those at the top. You may find that better intel comes from the roots of the company, rather than the flower.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Verizon as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck periodically.

    Cons

    Focus is on short-term ROI.
    No long-term strategy, or if there is one, it's not communicated. Even so, what communication there is is top-down.
    Two classes of workers:
    1. Old timers from GTE days hanging on for retirement.
    2. Contractors used up and discarded.
    Diversity? I'm all for diversity, but this is like stepping into India.

    Advice to Management

    Continue treating your workforce as a commodity and reap the consequences.
