    I have been working at Verizon full-time

    Pros

    If you can find a niche area in VZW and are more interested in long term job security with less interest in personal growth and are OK with low morale then it is a good place for you.

    Cons

    Verizon (Non-VZW) is negative growth company slowly inching to marginal growth. The culture of the the IT org still has strong ties to 'Dilbert' environmental conditions that they are not shaking.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the largest IT environments around means plenty of scope. VZ has enough capital to keep the environment reasonably modern. Downsizing through the 200xs meant that the people remaining when I left were generally outstanding.

    Cons

    Senior management displayed indifferent leadership skills. Pressure to keep costs down was rapidly hitting the point of trying to get blood from a stone. Work-life balance was kind of a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct 360 reviews of all management staff to differentiate people who just give orders from actual leaders.
