I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great benefits package that exceeded expectations. Decent training before and during career.

Cons

Management seems very disfunctional and has unrealistic goals. Commission structure doesn't always benefit the reps

Advice to Management

Needs to understand that the majority of the market base is not going to match their perfect customer, and thus, need to create goals and standards to match.

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

    Pros

    It's great if you're fresh out of college, and need a job right away to hold you over until you sort things out. Do not expect to go from a retail store to a corporate office; it's almost unheard of, and takes forever.

    Cons

    Verizon is a very difficult company to advance in. You have to know the right people, and they have to be willing to push you along through the organization

    Advice to Management

    Lose the corporate persona, and be more genuine and supportive. If a person isn't fit for a sales role then try to find a role in the company that's better suited for him/her.
