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

    Pros

    Verizon was a very good company to me over my career. Many opportunities to grow and find the type of work that interests you. From sales, IT, legal, finance, and even start-ups.

    Cons

    Like all large corporations, sometimes they just can't make a decision and succumb to analysis paralysis.

    Advice to Management

    Allow directors and low-level VP's to take more risk. Empower not just the rank and file, but empower the leadership to know it's ok to take risks and make mistakes.

    Pros

    Verizon is pursuing is pretty advanced technologies, going in to some new areas like IoT. The pay is high, even relative to other tech companies. Good work/life balance, most of the time.

    Cons

    Directors and managers have a tendency to yell, but mostly at each other. Verizon is having trouble attracting senior talent. None of the extras you get in newer tech companies. Lots of bureaucracy -- So many policy training videos.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers. What's with all the yelling?

    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.
