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

    Pros

    There is job security. Work can be interesting. You can move around the company if you're motivated and want to learn.

    Cons

    Salary. It really hurts when you hear about how much money your company makes but they don't pass any of the profits on through wages. They pay lower than industry standards, at least for engineering, and for the last few years they've lowered the amount paid out for the company profit sharing portion of salaries. Also, they've upped the work load dramatically. The only reason I stay is because of the conditions of the current job market. They know the same fear is true for many employees and Verizon is leveraging this as much as possible. Lately they've been a very greedy company.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying attention to the yearly employee surveys. Oh, and when we all get together at company events, don't play Verizon motivational videos unless they're really good.
