No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Many job roles do allow for at least partial work from home time. Verizon also allows some flexibility to work around personal needs. The need for over-time work can be a plus or minus.

Cons

The company is off-shoring jobs as much as possible so adds to what is definitely a high stress environment. Advancement is often based on networking ability.

Advice to Management

There is a very strong need to look at ability rather than connections.
