Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Verizon (More than 10 years)

Pros

Beautiful facilities, state of the art technology, excellent internal employee web sites, great benefits.

Cons

Verizon's IT organization will not hire any Americans in either a contract position or employee position. I was an IT manager and no first hand how discriminating the company is in the IT area. Every contractor comes in from one of the highly controversial vendor companies, Infosys, and all of them require H1B visas. All the director level and above management are Indians. They openly mistreat women and any one who is not of a certain sect.

Advice to Management

Look seriously into what is going on in IT. Their unethical behavior is costing you money and increasing your expense ratio.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big company. You have the ability to move around when they close down your office or relocate your job. You can hide and do nothing as long as you look busy.

    Cons

    Big company. Ant on an ant hill. Lots of passing the buck. Only a few people have the real information and they are harder to find then a needle in a haystack.

    Advice to Management

    Wow...really? They didn't listen when I worked there...I'll save my breath.
