    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are great networking opportunities and they pay well, both salary wise AND commission. You get to feel like you're part of a huge team.

    Cons

    Hard to climb the corporate ladder, the jobs can be time consuming, and the positions are highly competitive with eachother.

    Advice to Management

    More incentives should be given besides just commission. Verizon can be expensive and makes it a hard sell over a brand like T-Mobile.

    Pros

    Verizon is always striving to get better by empowering its employees. Good visibility to leadership team helps bring ideas to the forefront

    Cons

    Ensure that not everything becomes a fire drill by managing prioritization of key initiatives better and more effectively. Also ensure we keep replenishing our bench strength

    Advice to Management

    Executing on forward looking strategy objectives is key

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The potential of a great carrier and salary is there! Your clients are right at your finger tips.

    Cons

    They push sales reps to sell, sell, SELL!! The quota to meet every month is ridiculous and nieve people walk out the door with crap they don't even need just so an employee can try to meet the mimum monthly requirement.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the quota so there's not that nagging stress on your people. It would definitely help the mood in your stores.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime, great pay and benefits, has free education opportunities, job security.

    Cons

    Work most of the overtime during spring to early fall, due to the nature of the job, you can't predict how your day will go.

    Advice to Management

    Working 4 days on and 3 days off with an hour lunch may help dynamic dispatch and boost productivity.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Top 5 benefits package for management employees
    Great tuition assistance and learning programs
    Lots of opportunities to connect with coworkers outside of work (professional associations, events, etc.)
    Focus on the customer

    Cons

    Not the most innovative atmosphere for product development
    Senior management sometimes lacks transparency

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership needs to listen more to middle management (Band 6/Band 5)--create more opportunities for 360 feedback and transparency rather than dictate from the top.

    Pros

    Can make a lot of money. Benefits are good and a lot of overtime potential for outside plant. Nice discount on products

    Company doesn't care about its employees and neither does its union. Don't get injured. The company will do everything in its power to get rid of you

    Take care of your people. There are a lot of loyal workers. They deserve better
