    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    exciting times in technology, great portfolio of solutions and services to sell, direction feels right from the top, platform approach, simplification, customer experience focus, six sigma introduction.

    Cons

    ....somewhere between the vision from the top of the mountain.... down to the soldiers that are ready, willing and anxious to go forth and execute....there is a giant clog in the pipe. Very difficult to get things done, there is no "culture"....morale is horrible. Organization feels like it lacks alignment in order to achieve the established goals. Multiple internal groups with competing agendas.

    Advice to Management

    The direction we are heading is exciting, there needs to be more focus and visibility on following the communication and the tool sets from the top of the mountain, down to the soldiers and back to the top again. Cut out the political/ internal barriers that waste time and take energy away that could be spent better focused on customer experience.

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

    Pros

    The salary is good. The benefits are good. Job is good, and the people I work with are great. Flexible working environment.

    Cons

    The management team seem to hate the American part of their workforce. Constant RIFs. As soon as one is done, another is in the works. Outsourcing to India where the workforce seems totally clueless.

    Advice to Management

    I think that everyone would forgo raises so they could keep their jobs. Why do you not see the value of people who've been doing their jobs for 20+ years? You should be retaining every one of us who knows how things work.
