Pros

The commute was good and the paychecks were issued promptly. Other than that, there were no factors I would consider "pros".

Cons

Treating contractors (we are not even considered consultants) like dirt is hard wired into VZW's DNA. I've never seen such a corporate culture this dysfunctional. Productive staff were overloaded with more and more work while slackers were allowed to coast. Of course renewal decisions had no bearing on productivity. Managers rose to their positions by virtue of tenure and not merit. There is a very lean management structure which might work in an organization with competent staffers but not one staffed by hacks. Long term managers are known to berate and bully the rank and file with impunity. Even long term well connected contractors throw their weight around. They are attuned to the poor job market and are acting accordingly because they can.

Advice to Management

Fire all the ATT and OTC legacy middle managers and reboot the culture, purging it of ll the anal retentive territorial nonsense. Institute a robust PMO.

    "Good compensation but annoying micro-management and retail hours."

    Former Employee - Retail Sales Representative in San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Retail Sales Representative in San Diego, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The compensation is pretty good. If you work hard and you are a good sales representative you will be compensated. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Constantly micro managed for all kinds of little things. Lots of paperwork. Managers are concerned about so many different selling possibilities that they nit pick about the little things.

    Advice to Management

    If a sales representative is successful do not give them are a time about the little things. Treat your employees like adults.
