I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great benefits and people! Help with school

Cons

No personal work life balance. They expect you to always be on as a manager.

Advice to Management

People have families and its unfair to ask them to work all the time. If there is an asm that you feel can not perform, put them in another job or let them go.

  1. "Good culture, good diversity, but corporate cuulture"

    I worked at Verizon Wireless as an intern

    Pros

    Verizon (wireless and wireline) really focuses on their Creedo, which is essentially the set of company morals and values. There's also a strong focus on hiring people from diverse backgrounds, as they believe diversity helps innovation. Verizon Wireless is often on the cutting edge of technology.

    Cons

    Verizon Wireless is slightly less corporate than Verizon (Wireless has casual Fridays, for instance), but it's still very corporate. The dress code is business casual, and offices are comprised of sprawling seas of cubicles.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is decent, your base starting out is 25-30k plus commission, the monthly target is around 1300$ with opportunity to make more or less than that. Typical compensation for a sales consultant is 45-70k, averages are in the 50s. You get to stay ahead of the wireless technology trend. Ot is 1.5 times hourly, after 10 hours its double time. 401k plan with company match, small bonus end of year.

    Cons

    odd hours and rare weekends off. As a commissioned sales rep its in your best interest to work weekends. Environment and objectives constantly changing, market is saturated to heavy pressure no new data devices such as iPads and mobile broadbands. Its not just about selling phones, you are responsible for about 15 metrics. If your in your 20s its not a bad job and pays well for your age group, but making 60k in your 30s with these hours, not ideal. Lots of politics as in many companies.

    Advice to Management

    rules being broken/ bent is a byproduct of your aggressive initiatives, clearly explain the grey areas to your employees.
