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

Pros

The company offers competitive salary and 401k.

Cons

Benefits are diminishing and downsizing is a constant. Insecure employment.

Advice to Management

Communicate the company's long range plans to employees. Encourage cross training to re-position employees for the future rather than RIFs.

    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.
