I have been working at Verizon as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Coworkers are a great group of people to work with

Cons

Budget conflicts made it so they sent a lot of contractors packing. I was supposed to be one of them. Then a week later I was magically reinstated. I would think they would give their own people more of a discount on services, but I get a higher discount from my previous employer on my cell bill then they offer FT employees. Doesn't apply to me since I'm a contractor, but just thought it was sad they don't have better perks for their employees.

Advice to Management

Loosen up the reigns a bit. Make this place a better company to work for by taking care of your employees. I believe they didn't even give the day after Christmas off last year as a paid holiday.
