I have been working at Verizon full-time

Pros

Benefits are good and multiple locations are available to transfer to

Cons

Mid-level execs are never fired, only lower level employees are let go. Execs are always sucking up to their bosses and goes all the way from Managers to CIO. Too many abusive managers

Advice to Management

Go back to the GTE culture and teach managers how to be managers instead of acting like overbearing abusive fathers.

    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 worked at Verizon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were a number of very good people in middle management who made the work more enjoyable.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and red tape are rampant, with a large emphasis on saving money even when it is ill-advised or even irrelevant: For example, they would not provide basic office supplies, requiring me to buy them out of my own paychecks. They also would not provide training specific to the work being done, requiring me to do extensive research and double work to learn the ropes.
    As a result of this corporate attitude, there was little loyalty evident among the employees I encountered, both on my team and in other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are people, not "resources". Make an effort to empower them and they will give you loyalty and workmanship in return.
