    Pros

    If you have an open mind to change this is a company for you. With technology changing daily Verizon seems to always be ahead of the game. The benefits and 401k are great! My favorite part is the ability to grow within the company. Verizon encourages women in leadership and also has tuition assistance. The company recognizes its employees and gives you the tools you need to suceed! If you want to be a part of a company that focuses on its values, employees and is #1 I'm network reliability, this is it!

    Cons

    I would say if you are not competitive or open minded to adapt to constant change then maybe sales is not the job for you. Good news is there are tons of fields you can be in with this company. Demanding metrics along with quota can be a challenge but as long as you put in 110 percent you will be successful. The retail side can be challenging to some.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on recognizing the employees and giving us the tools along with leadership programs to grow within the company! #proudtobevzw
