    "Nice benefits, but it's definitely a gateway job. Not a career."

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good money for anyone without a degree and great insurance.

    Cons

    Sales compensation is poor and expectations are way too high. High turn over rate. Retail hours. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the top 100 companies of 2012 and look into *why* they are the top rated. Compensate the little guys for promoting the growth in Verizon. Without Sales Reps, you'd be nothing. Figure out a system to keep employees. You pay thousands of dollars to train a new hire rather than finding some sort of employee retention program. Our day to day thought process revolves around the fact that we will ultimately end up getting fired... it has nothing to do with making money at this point.
