    I have been working at Verizon as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my particular dept, we're not micromanaged. Our managers trust us to handle our projects and manage our schedules as we need. This is a big morale boost. I love working in a leading edge industry, and Verizon is at the front. Verizon is very professionally run, on the ball, great people to work with. I love coming to work - I don't hate Mondays here!

    Cons

    Verizon/telecom industry... evolves at a faster pace than other industries, so it can be volutile, and at times worrisome. They have big and small layoffs almost monthly.

    Pros

    once you start your interview process they don't make you wait forever and they keep you informed every step of the way and carry rewarding benefits

    Cons

    No cons so far besides them being right in the heart of traffic, but that's as expected.

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

    Pros

    Integrity of leadership. Community involvement. Support of Veterans. Verizon Foundation supporting many charitable organizations. Environment that encourages employee contribution to the organization as well as their community. A true open door policy to leadership. Individual and team recognition. Total benefits package includes very competitive salary, tuition assistance, matching 401K contributions, healthcare. This was my experience and largely the reason I was there for almost 30 years (through multiple company acquisitions and mergers).

    Cons

    There are really very few negatives worth comment. However, like any company there are issues that have to be addressed periodically. Again as with any company no matter the size there is a small percentage of leadership that do not live up to the credo including integrity. There are staffing decisions that are not always based on the best qualified candidate and I think that would be the biggest issue that needs to addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make integrity number 1 in the credo and in practice. Work harder to ensure all levels of management truly live that credo.
