    I have been working at Verizon full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are nice, the work is interesting, and the culture is on par with most IT companies in the area.

    Cons

    Bonuses are tied to your organization's performance and the companies performance. Advanced services makes no effort to keep top performers when the contract that they work expires.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in the people can go along way in decreasing turnover and building an exceptional culture.

    "Excellent Union Strong Company"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Income potential is amazing bonus payouts top in the industry. Potential to move forward with the company boundless. Potential for younger new to the work place environment to learn more and a chance to make it your 1st and last employer is yours for the taking.

    Cons

    Not great for work life balance. The company has the right to move around your off days at their leisure. Not family friendly. Attendance policy unrealistic leaves no room for life events that may affect the average human being.

    No support for the high goals that are set is a sink or swim position. Highly competitive position that is more focused on the end result but no road map to get there. Union although strong in negotiations during the contract phase very little influence after to adapt to management changes, management has the upper hand until time for new contract.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that consultants work to live not live to work. Balance is key.
