    You will never get board. Nice people, great medical and dental. Also tuition reimbursement. Pay is good, especially if you have a good territory.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time

    Pros

    Fast-moving company with new initiatives that should position us more favorably in the upcoming years.

    Cons

    Too many moving parts and not enough resources to effectively get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the abilities of your teams and get them the help they need. Doing more with less works for the short-term. Long-term it leads to burnout and lack of quality in our work.
