    Pros

    Verizon wireless has great benefits and is a large company with a lot of annual income, so don't have to worry too much at this time of being taken over by a different company.

    Cons

    Ask any current/former employee. The job is way more stressful than it should be. Extreme pressure to perform from upper management with goals that are not consistently attainable. Most people who achieve these goals usually cheat to get them, and then end up getting fired for their dishonesty. But in the meantime because of their success in achieving the goals, management raises them, making it impossible for the honest employee to attain them. Do not go into Verizon Wireless if you want to work somewhere for the rest of your life, every person I have know that worked there that wasn't already in very high upper level management (Director of higher) has either been fired or been forced out of their job. They do not care about their employees, and care less and less every year about people and only about the dollar. Plus, in 8 years at VZW, never once had a Holiday party, or anything to build team moral. You would get to attend the kickoff, which usually was a couple hours away after your shift, then had to drive back because they will now not put their employees up for the night. Great company and product who treats employees like a sweat shop.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees have a life outside of work.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Lately, none. Pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    Been here a long time and it used to be a different environment. As a general rule Wireless is far better than Wireline, but since the move to basking ridge, the wireline in infiltrating wireless and bringing it down to their level.

    Advice to Management

    why bother...you won't listen.
