    Pros

    Great benefits and competitive salary

    Cons

    Many business units are in a transition phase as Verizon makes its way from a wire-line telephone base to new technologies. This may be difficult for some considering you may be maintaining legacy technology, managing acquisitions and moving forward to new business opportunities at the same time.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, good corporate culture, hard to get promoted inside or to get new opportunities

    Cons

    Now it seems like a telemarketing company, pushing to close sales behaves more like a time share ready for the quick buck company than a serious corporation.
    Very unrealistic goals and trying to complete on service delivery with Amazon good luck with that.

    Advice to Management

    Return to professional attitude ,look further ahead than the next quarter. Still a lot to win as a leader in telecommunications without loosing your principals and a lot to loose without them.

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

    Pros

    Working in Verizon can be very good. It provides the opportunity to work in many different areas of technology and project typically last about 2-3 years.

    Cons

    Can be a bit Corporate. They are trying hard to be seen in the market as a tech company even recently with a hire from Apple to market this. However, at the end it comes down to they need to change the culture of Engineers are where to invest to do this.

    Advice to Management

    Even with the new push to Verizon as a Tech Company the culture of Engineers are important is failing. Capital over Expense Dollars is prohibiting this from happening.

    Pros

    Nice people, excellent benefits, beautiful campus. I was lucky to work with a great team and management that tried to give us perks to keep teams motivated.

    Cons

    Constant downsizing. Your job is on the line every year. Projects are started and many never completed due to the politics of upper management. Technology organizations value the technical worker more than administrative staff so many teams don't know how to get office supplies or software and equipment needed to do their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on delivering a solid product instead of the politics of keeping high profile projects in your organization or being the team with the most visibility.
