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

Pros

Verizon has a very strong sales culture and long history of performance excellence. You will not have trouble competing in the marketplace with the quality of service they provide. The tools I was provided were also top notch.

Cons

I worked at Verizon for 7 years and every year the compensation plans were changed but never for the better. They had a 300% cap on target commission, which capped earning potential.

Also, like many large corporations, there is a major disconnect from the front line sales associates and middle/upper management. In my particular market, they simply wanted "yes men" and discouraged voicing market trends/concerns.

Advice to Management

Capping commission at 300% creates a culture of "sand bagging" and limits the potential productivity of your sales associates. Why would you ever want a rep to stop selling because they reached their monthly max??

    Training, Career Advancement Opportunities in NJ.

    Cons

    The cons involve a degree of separation and segmentation from HQ when you come to work for the Region. The cultural attitudes are in stark contrast from the Corporate structure in NJ.
