    I worked at Verizon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is decent. Pretty good benefits and perks are offered. The cafeteria sand Starbucks are great. I liked the traveling aspect.

    Cons

    Everything else!
    Management does not take their role seriously. They do not promote within the department. Vacation time could be better. The dedication you show by the amount of hours you put in... goes completely unnoticed and without recognition. There's no support whatsoever and no teamwork at all.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved in the way the department functions and ensure that managers are actually doing their work instead of constantly watching YouTube videos at their desks.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent salary and benefits. Management on some level means to do well and an effort is made to walk the talk about being fair.

    Cons

    Weak leadership at the VP level down and very under-handed. They like to play games with an individual's career if the ring isn't kissed and you don't play their games. Promotions are based on relevant substance, it's like high school to some extent. Be careful, be very, very careful if you choose this company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the HR complaints that are raised. It paints a picture you need to recognize.
