    Pros

    Verizon Wireless is a big company and working there definitely will give you a lot of experience dealing with corporate systems, policies and procedures. We work with people from completely different backgrounds to achieve company goals.

    Cons

    Management only cares about their bonuses and incentives, nobody cares about the person. Although Verizon is a communication company however, communication within the company is horrible to say the least. With communication I mean simple things like requesting a meeting with HR that would take 3 weeks to schedule! Stuff like that, and the point is that your management is not keen to enhance this communication issue and make it better...

    Advice to Management

    Enhance communication with front line employees who are the real face of the company because they are who the customers see and deal with.
    Middle management needs to be requalified and retested for their abilities and skills.
    Give company employees the preference first when opening a new position for hire rather than running to outside recruiters first.
