    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The brand is the best part of working for Vz. Ton's of resources available. Pay was above industry average.

    Cons

    Vz is the hardest company to do business with that i've ever been associated. the # of systems that are not integrated due to the constant mergers makes it an impossible maze. My particular Regional Director was the biggest ASS i've ever seen, I can't believe he has not been involved in a harassment law suit.

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

    Pros

    Benefits but as you go into management they take more and more away from you and make you pay more every year. Froze pensions, up healthcare costs, so you merit raise every year didn't matter you would loose every year and took a pay cut because the benefits were higher every year

    Cons

    Always afraid if loosing your job, they threaten you all with your job "this job wont be here next year". They keep the people who suck and got rid of the good people who were making more money just to cut costs.

    Advice to Management

    Review the people you are going to lay off. Look at peoples yearly reviews and determine from there. Layoffs were suppose to be by performance not salary.
