    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get a Yearly bonus depending on how the company does. The company offers Flex time, Parental time, vacation and sick. They have the average company spiffs and have a cafe on site for food so you don't have to leave the building. The most enjoyable part of your job is the people you work with

    Cons

    You are micro managed all the time and the rules change for every customer. You are expected to to sell, trouble shoot, make calls to current customers and businesses, up sell everything, and please EVERY customer. It's almost impossible to get a good shift. You start at 2pm-11pm and scheduling is based on seniority. After 2 and a half years I finally got a 9am-6pm Tue-Sat shift (count on your weekends being gone for a few years). Management talks to you like you are a child and always tells you what you are doing wrong never any good things that you are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team and back them up when they are rite.
