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

    Pros

    Salary was slightly above standard. Lots of long term employees. Best benefits I ever had.

    Cons

    Executive management didn't care the slightest bit about the average worker. The CFO ridiculed various teams during his quarterly presentations to the entire finance group . Didn't support any sort of flexible work arrangements. Lots of initiatives were planned and abandoned. Others were implemented with out planning. Very limited advancement.
