I have been working at Verizon full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company has a great place in the market & is one of the biggest around. Lots of areas of the business to become involved with to fit your interests as an employee.

Cons

In IT, I see lots of jobs being outsourced & domestic employees who have been working for the company 30+ years being laid off. Makes me uncertain about long-term employment here.

    I worked at Verizon as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training is excellent and they still pay decent overtime.

    Cons

    Not enough direction and poorly managed. The union is in a weak position to help new employees. You are forced to join and pay dues.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the profits burning!


  2. "Ever changing "plan" on the Enterprise side"

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong wireless business, great value for shareholders. Looks good on a resume for those who value old school telco background. Apple self paced training opportunity.

    Cons

    Same unproductive leaders get shuffled every 9 months under the guise of a re-org...why not bring in a proven sales leader to turn the business around?

    Advice to Management

    Outside hires with proven track records of success for leadership positions in Enterprise.
