    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

    Cons

    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 worked at Verizon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of smart people, and most of them hard working. You have to be to keep up. Some office politics, but that's impossible to avoid. Decent pay, good bennies. This division was for business accounts only.

    Cons

    More and more changes and adjustments 'til you don't know what's required or not ... but, that's Telecom; always has been. Some of the engineers have almost zero people skills, but, they can be there with the needed designs and graphs, so, you deal with it.

    Advice to Management

    Mgmt is pretty much okay ... let their bosses advise them; that's what they're paid for.

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay; opportunities to advance; good benefits.
    Executive Savings Plan and Contributary 401k

    Cons

    Lots of “C” change - no longer the “Job for Life” company!

    Advice to Management

    Don’t erase the “Bell Traditions”.; Downsizing rarely improves customer service in a very competitive environment.
