I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There were many benefits to working for Verizon. The pay was very good at times, depending what quotas were and the traffic for that month. Nothing was guaranteed except for the weak hourly pay.

Cons

Quotas were usually high and not all reps would meet them. Goals would change month to month, sometimes would be very different.

Advice to Management

Keep goals more consistent, offer more rewards for employees who do well at their job and not just the people with the most activations for the month. The best sales reps are not always the best managers. I worked with many really good employees who would make better managers than half of the people in charge, but they didn't get the most sales.
