I worked at Verizon Wireless as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Warren is a good location in NJ. Easy commute.
Decent facility. Has cafeteria. Parking garage.
People (non-management) are great to work with.
Young, energetic workforce.
Decent projects (Java shop & mobile development)
Verizon Wireless is doing fairly well as a company so no layoffs.

Cons

Required to work 10 hr days, minimum.
Verizon in general pays on the low side.
Management is incompetent. No clue how to run projects.
The answer to every problem with every project: Work more hours.
No space at facility. Some people without cubes.
Too many contractors, more of them than employees.
High turnover in contractors. No knowledge retention.
Management does not understand the meaning of work/life balance. No such thing.

Advice to Management

When hiring managers, look outside for fresh ideas. Do not only promote from within. By doing that things will never change and it will continue to be a sweat shop environment.

    Pros

    Veriozn Wireless have excellent benefits such as medical, dental and vision. Also the profit sharing is good and tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Takes a while for management to make changes submitted by front line reps. Change happens often which you are advised upfront. Sometimes good, sometimes bad.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to front line representatives.
