    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the supervisors are awesome and work really hard to support their teams. The benefits are great and the pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    Higher management only thinks about the bottom line not the employees. Making goals just isn't good enough for them they always want more. They used to give bonuses for ranking at the top but they took that away.

    Advice to Management

    Give back the rewards. Your employees deserve to be rewarded when the are at the top

    Pros

    Very generous health insurance, 401K match, sick days. Vacation and personal days given. Discount, 50%, on wireless service and other items that are sold through your wireless account.

    Cons

    Starting to outsource jobs, either moving jobs to Verizon in the Philippines or outright transferring employees to other companies. Do a search for "Verizon Infosys" for more info.

    Advice to Management

    Beware of the negative public reaction to moving jobs to foreign countries.
