I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Awesome group of coworkers, interesting projects, everyone is telecommute and the hours flexible. Top of market salary. Lots of hardware to play with. Mutual trust and respect all over the place. Been here three years now and still liking it a lot.

Cons

It's a huge company, around 200k worldwide, so there's big-corp idiocy in places like IT and HR. If you get the wrong group, it's a bad place to work. And of course, epic politics; there's real money in play.

Advice to Management

Reopen the FIOS project: the country needs it and the profit is there to be had. Work harder to collaborate with other groups in the company.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Must join union. Room to progress within company. Offer plenty of education opportunities that they will pay for.

    Cons

    There were no part time positions. So for a person that would prefer to stay home part time with a child that is not an option.
