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

Pros

The salaries are okay, if you want personal growth you better learn it yourself

Cons

70% of IT Vice Presidents are Indian. Whole teams may have 1 American. Constantly having RIFS where the older Americans are let go and more new, young Indians are hired. There is no work balance, if they have something they want done, kiss your weekends or nights good-bye. There is little if any leadership. The VPs worry if you telecommute when they should be looking at strategic direction.

Advice to Management

You make your money here and lots of it, hire people born here.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits & salary are great & you get to work with great people.

    Cons

    The company always has a flavor of the month to pick on. The schedule leaves you very little time to spend with family. Although, so far we aren't working weekends which I appreciate.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The benefits were great & the opportunity for growth is why I liked this company.

    Cons

    The company is all about revenue so if you're not a seller it wouldn't work out because you have a quota.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be on the same page as far as observations go, and build a better rapport with the consultants.
