    I worked at Verizon (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with outside of HQ and a lot of good people in HQ, Really strong pay and benefits, Exciting work

    Cons

    Random decision-making at times especially in terms of the finance and accounting organization, Organizational posturing can distract from optimal operation at HQ and, coupled with frequent leadership rotations, leads to decisions based less on merit than whose idea it was and who supports it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be Management, be Leadership. Ignore quick insights and decisions that make you or your immediate circle look good and instead focus on the overall business, the employees that enabled past success, and the customers that provide your work.

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    You can move laterally and gain experience.

    Cons

    Lacking customer focus. At the highest echelons, leadership needs to learn how to tell the difference between a good presenter and a leader.

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

    Pros

    Headquarters is a nice building with gym and cafe. Employees are friendly and you get noticed for exceptional work.

    Cons

    Difficult to get promoted, lots of change in upper management, and not always change for the better. Company focus seems to change yearly based on VPs whim.

    Advice to Management

    Its ok, but difficult to get promoted. Most Directors and above are hired from outside the company.

    I worked at Verizon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Management is made up of hard working guys with modest backgrounds that had to work their way up. Weekly event for employees and other events throughout the year. Stable nine to five work day.

    Cons

    Very large company so it's definitely hierarchical and can be hard for everyone to adapt to changes. The different divisions are often separate and do not communicate.

    Advice to Management

    Open up channels of communication between divisions, especially when multiple divisions must work together to see a product through its development.
