I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits, 401k, tuition reimbursement and wants to be customer-focused.

Cons

Life / work balance, often silo'd in terms of organizational communications and KPIs, Union detracts from positive employee accountability and empowerment and can negatively impact the customer experience.

Advice to Management

Culture shift is absolutely critical to drive employee empowerment and accountability. This will never occur while the Union has such a strong foot-hold and negative influence on our front-line employees.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great 401k, better than average compensation, diverse workforce.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities to move within the company, quarterly RIfs, abundant offshoring, lack of direction that is constantly changing, nothing special as far as work environment/facilities.

    Advice to Management

    They need to consider training their management, yelling is not an effective technique to attract bright young talent. There seems to be a consistent message from executive level that does not translate to the middle management and execution. Too many managers are just trying to get to the next level instead of making improvements and meeting goals
