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

Pros

Career opportunities are available. Employees care about their jobs and delivering the best service possible to customers. Technology evolution makes it an interesting company to work for.

Cons

People get focused on delivering numbers and forget to address other issues that may not seem important but actually plays an indirect role in delivering the numbers that are so important.

Advice to Management

Everyone should be working together to ensure we maintain a successful company. Objectives assigned to departments are not the same. A lot of time may be spent trying to get others to "help" if there is no "benefit" perceived by the person since it does contribute to their objectives. At times it feels as if we are not working for the same company.

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

    Pros

    There are none anymore. We are treated disrespectfully and the the jobs are slowly being moved out of the country.

    Cons

    This used to be the best company in the world to work for, now it's all about lining the pockets of the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Look to the past for the key to success in the future.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive (but not enough to overcome the many cons)

    Cons

    Extremely bureaucratic, Mediocrity rules (anyone with a brain leaves asap) - you will learn nothing, Extremely political/back-stabbing type culture - this overshadows work, Miserable place overall.

    I left as soon as I could!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being complacent and think what will happen if the landscape changes (think WiMax and Google). You are only in the business because you are a duopoly protected by the US government that fleeces US consumers. VZ will die if ever forced to compete fairly.
