Pros

The advancement ability at VZW is all about where you want to go. There is a career path for nearly anything you would want to do. The career progression plan is well laid out and provides a solid knowledbe base for advancement. The company provides $8k annually for tuition program, 100% match on the first 6% we contribute to the fantastic 401k plan, we have backup care options, we have ample time off to manage for our needs. The employee phone program is a real plus, and what we pay for our health care premiums is awesome. We also have annual profit sharing, and an annual bonus we get based on our performance and the company performance. It can be up to 8% of my base pay for my position! There are so many positive things about this company and where I can go, it is hands down the best employer I have ever had. The performance based culture lets me define my future.

Cons

While I do have to work hard, come to work when I am scheduled, and stick to my lunch/break times when working at VZW, I do not think that those expectations are out of line.

Advice to Management

Stay involved, understand the front line CSR's and what they do day to day. Communicate clearly and insure the message is always consistant among the teams.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good. The culture seems relaxed, although VZ is trying to strongarm their way in.

    Cons

    Doing nothing is alot better and more stable. Trying to get ahead and do your job will just cause you grief, roadblocks and no rewards.
    Everyone seems to be in CYA mode, instead of working as a team to get the job done. Blaming others for their mistakes is often a better approach than admitting mistakes and working to resolve them

    Advice to Management

    Dont fire people based on their attempts to do the right thing.
