    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A challenging position. I had to become a SME on various phone systems and orchestrate installation, set-up and education of the end users in a specified amount of time. Classroom and job site training was dependant on the users trusting my expertise.

    Cons

    Because there were so many different phone systems available and such diverse businesses to teach, I had to learn both in a limited amount of time. Each training experience was always different so no standard template of teaching was available.

    Advice to Management

    As I was management, my advise would be to visit the business before installation of the systems and learn how the phone system would best benefit the business. Wear apropriate attire for the business environment and provide easy to understand material on the functions and uses of the system to be used.
