    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good environment, vacation, Health insurance, benefits, profit bonus sharing

    Cons

    Too much work for some and not for others. Promotions and growth does not depend on your hard work but it depend on your team and management and contacts.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to consider multiple options before rating their employees but not one sided or few leads.

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

    Pros

    All the alone time. As a tech you had a lot of time to get personal things done during the day. Oh and all of the overtime pay!

    Cons

    Too much micro management from the middle managers. Also a bit of a bloated middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of unions and 50% of middle management. No need for arbitrary set of productivity in how many lines a tech puts in a day.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The flexibility of working remotely was wonderful, that alone was worth working for Verizon. There are some very knowledgeable people that are great to work with.

    Cons

    The constant layoffs are disruptive and demoralizing. There is no "plan" on how the work of 3 or more people will be accomplished by a single person without addressing the "process and resource issues", the result of the constant "restructuring". There is very little opportunity for promotion.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong on education and the latest technology.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs. Two or more each year. Lot of the IT work is being outsource overseas. I was laid off after 20+ years.

    Advice to Management

    If you stop all the layoffs you would be surprise how the company bottom line would grow. Yea you can say you doing well, but I believe if you slow it down some, things would be even better.

    Pros

    I found the benefits to be quite good, and very often my colleagues were nice, interesting people. Arlington, VA location was convenient for commuting.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the people in power are often not the most fair-minded, businesslike, or fundamentally nice people. Constant threat of job loss creates a difficult environment. IT was so process-oriented that nothing ever was accomplished or, if something was completed, it was a sub-standard product.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize the quality of results as well as quantity. This will involve hiring quality people and, yes, paying them market rates. Remove the road-blocking and/or unpleasant supervisors to non-supervisory roles.
