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

Pros

-- Open....as in the higher-ups are accessible and available to talk to.
-- Interesting work technically...working on internal application(s) that run on 2-tiers and have an
    electronics/telecom component(s).
-- Pretty campus....streams, trees, lawns, and crawdads in the streams and on the stream-banks...
    I enjoyed watching those little fellas walking or scrounging for food! :).
-- Supportive team and Manager.

Cons

None that I can think of.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were the real pros.

    Cons

    They don't practice what they preach. It's all about revenue and not about what's the right thing to do for the customer. Reps feel harassed and, even when you are doing a great job in one area, you are not going to be lauded unless you sell at least $70 worth of accessories to every single customer. It doesn't matter if it's your Grandma on welfare, or a struggling college student. ACCESSORIES have to be sold or you have to sit through a counseling session taking you off the floor, which takes away sales, which just snowballs in to more frustrations and lack of motivation.

    Advice to Management

    Get real people in these positions. Do what you said you were going to do every single year, and reduce the bureaucracy you always talk about at the kickoffs. Be real! See the world as it is in these hard economics times, and most importantly, Get over yourselves. You lose great people all the time, and promote people that barely know how to use a mouse, much less can help when you need assistance on a system issue or the like.
