    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, consistent hours, and dicounts.

    Cons

    Very corporate and have to put up with a lot of unnecessary corporate world issues. Management is inconsistent. Some managers are terrible without consequence. Some are rude and demeaning. But you get that everywhere. The call center is very unprofessional and filled with drama.

    Advice to Management

    Hire great managers. Listen to reviews and skip levels. Encourage the great ones and get rid of the bad ones. Stop letting them treat people like garbage and demote or fire them. Also the year end reviews are horrible. The system is confusing and does not make sense for all positions. You have to make up stuff to put in. Oh, and everyone is always scared they are gonna be hit whenever the next layoff comes around. It's like hunger games corporate edition.

    Pros

    Company match, average returns compared to market.

    Cons

    Start 401 early and save every dollar you can afford, because you will never reach retirement age. They have a well established history of terminating employees above 55.

    Advice to Management

    One day a state attorney general will investigate your age decimation practices. Terminating older full time employees only to hire two contingent workers to replace them.

    Pros

    Great benefits - pay is only the beginning! Additionally, great health, dental and optical programs, as well as generous vacation and sick leave, tuition assistance and annual bonuses beyond merit increases.

    Cons

    Sometimes confused information makes it across departmental lines, leaving customer-facing employees to have incomplete or incorrect information to provide to customers. Additionally, some members of management choose to allow issues to "slide," creating headaches for other employees down the line when customers are sent to escalated levels without need.

    Advice to Management

    Actively address concerns that are brought to you. If a group indicates that a lower group is "sluffing off" and sending more work up the ladder unnecessarily, investigate that vigorously. The morale of those who are bringing the concerns depends on it.

    Pros

    Great benefits, available training and tuition reimbursement. Many departments to explore.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is difficult. Moving up the ladder or expanding career is difficult. Almost every year there is reorganization. Must be willing to work in a ever-changing environment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't focus so much on growth that you lose sight of the important people and things that make VZ what it is. Go back to fundamentals. Although change is inevitable, too much isn't good either and costs money and time.

    Pros

    Great benefits, retirement plan, pay, vacation, events for the district every fourth quarter

    Cons

    In retail stores you work a lot sometimes more than 40hrs. Therefore, you are away from the family a lot. My advice its great for college graduates with not kids.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others how you would want to be treated
