Pros

401k match is 6% dollar for dollar. Performance match also goes into 401k and it is max 3% but usually half that. Still very good. Annual bonus, around 10% of your salary.

Cons

Senior employees who have not worked in any other company at all and been there since they started their IT career somehow think they know everything and they are indispensable. Some of them are out of touch with technology and have put themselves into 'cruising' mode. As if they are in a retirement community and noone can take them out. And actually and probably this migth be true for some.

Advice to Management

Enable change. Trust workers. Hold the offenders accountable. Stop collective punishment of all workers in the form of overburdoning them with thick red tape to the degree that they can no longer get anything done. Just @##@$ing stop this! Wake up. Go after the offenders. Let track records give productive people a faster lane to net get stuck in the red tape that was a knee jerk reaction to some idiots action.

    Pros

    Overall good pay and benefits, good opportunities for add'l training. Large company so some opporturnities for lateral moves within wireline and wireless (but very limited between the two).

    Cons

    Can be very political, despite the outward communications to customers and marketplace, VZ is still essentially 3 totally distinct and seperate companies (i.e. Telecom, Business and Wireless) and there is minimal cohesiveness or integrated consolidated offers to the marketplace. Morale is an issue after several years of 15K+ layoffs annually, almost all on the wireline side. Minimal opportunities for upward advancement, it's more a matter of survival.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about 1 company - integrate Telecom, Business and Wireless and present one company face to the marketplace. AT&T has done this for past few years.....customers continue to ask us about integrated offers, contracts, etc., and we are running out of excuses after several years.
