    I have been working at Verizon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and pay seem really good vacation days start day 1. Pretty good amount of training if you have some type of skill with technology

    None so far. I just got hired so I'm stoked and it's been so long I had to leave a review because I've been reading them while going through this process hope it helps someone else out.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits such as PTO, Health Insurance, 6% match 401k, are all above average. Technology and the work environment is all very good. I enjoy my coworkers, and management team is overall good. Tuition reimbursement and training opportunities make professional development encouraged.

    Cons

    Verizon is a huge company and the corporate BS is at times strong, and there is sometimes a ton of red tape to maneuver. The environment can be quite stressful and things are constantly changing which can be challenging for some.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in employees, and consider more flexible policies. Listen to employee feedback.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -competitive pay
    -efficient bonus and performances metrics
    -great work/life balance for shift/non-exempt employees
    -supportive upper management
    -decent paid leave
    -tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    -BIG company with typical big company hurdles regardless of “lean” and “agile” mentalities
    -sometimes you can feel as a very small fish in a vast ocean above your 1st and 2nd level upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to use tuition money for reputable technical certification body’s and vendors. It’s annoying wanting to continue to sharpen your skill set when your limited on the third-party courses you take (has to be direct partners or recognized universities). No one want to gamble with certification reimbursement.
