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

    Pros

    Good company to work. Worked in store retail location so you have to work some nights,weekends and holidays but that is the retail business. Company has lots of benefits and they very affordable. Store atmosphere is very friendly among coworkers, everyone is like family. Most of the time work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Each store's management team and coworkers can determine how enjoyable it is work. The company makes a lot of changes in its software supporting systems.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change systems or processes just for the sake of change or for a new/different look. If a process/system works well there probably is not a need to change it.
