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

    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity for advancement and good pay. If working weekends doesn't bother you then it's a great job. An employee usually has an opportunity to become an Asst. Manager after a year with good numbers and good reputation.

    Cons

    Long hours and unless you request off you will be working every Saturday and every other Sunday. It's a con but also necessary if you want to make decent money.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    nice work environment and flexible work hours. Management decissions are very transparent and passed though appropriate channels. Has a fitness center in downstairs and good gym. Very friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Depends on the team you work in. Some teams are managed properly and other teams are a disaster. It will be difficult to strike a work life balance in certain teams.
