Pros

Excellent pay and benefits. Good strong company in the Telecommunications Industry. Good brand name and recognition. Company with good financials and solid company.

Cons

In the last ten years the company has taken some big hits from cable companies and other competitors. Company was late to see the changes coming in telecommunications.

Advice to Management

Must be more proactive to current events and less reactive. Don't be caught again by the competition with your guard down.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Relatively stable workplace for employees. Not contractors.

    Cons

    Lots of circles of trust. People get promoted just becuse they're friends from previous lifes or at the personal level, same ethnic background, etc. Not because they do a good job.

    Advice to Management

    HR should force management To be very clear on how people are elected for promotions.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There is great opportunities for training. My management is supportive and tries to do the right thing for employees. Salary and compensation are fair.

    Cons

    Benefits are so-so. Verizon is turning into a consulting firm. The client demands on the project management organanization are intense. Be prepared to work on holidays such as Christmas Day, Thanksgiving, etc if this is a customer request.
