    I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Best Employee Benefits. Twice the medical coverage I had as a county hospital employee.

    Cons

    None. The chairs were firm, yet I always felt more refreshed and rested after my shift, than before it.

    Advice to Management

    More Phone Tree Templates in writing, for Troubleshooting. In search, Open all web domains as text only or Google cache text only. Facebook is someone else, sometimes need to provide technical support numbers, to assist customer and keep respectable network support boundaries.

  2. Verizon - collaborative employees across all teams. Great Benefits. Great Leaders.

    I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Verizon will give you as much as you put into it. They provide plenty of opportunity for career and self growth. Teamwork and accountability will get you noticed within the company quickly.

    Cons

    A personal brand is preached and it becomes your identity within the company for obvious reasons. You can have a great imprint on the company in different area of sales, but if you don't play as "teachers pet" your results will not matter. I noticed plenty of great employees get passed up for promotions, just to see the individuals promoted fail within their new positions regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Promote, build, and guide those who show promise and results. Being a favorite does not always translate to success.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Great company, and great benefits. Family-oriented, good values. Large company, so there are always opportunities to move within the company and to grow.

    Cons

    It's a behemoth of a company. Moves slowly. NOTHING (unless you're in wireless) moves very fast. I'm on the Enterprise side of the house, so we often feel like the red-headed stepchild (to Wireless). Wireless does bring in most of the money, so I get it... but nothing moves fast here. It can be very beaurocratic. I'm hoping Verizon 2.0 changes. Also, there is a culture of cost savings (and RiFs) rather than a focus on...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on growth rather cost savings. You have to spend money to make money.
