    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun team environment, great benefits, opportunities for advancement after one year.

    Cons

    Too much pressure for me personally. In my case it was a sales position so that goes with the territory, just not my cup of tea.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work from home, autonomy, decent technology

    Cons

    Tremendous work load that's left for contractors, while the rest of the team does nothing. Low morale, unrealistic expectations unless you can meet the 80 hour workload, unstable product managers that want product and don't care for your personal sacrifices.

    Advice to Management

    Why would anyone want to build your product while you watch other work and ultimately watch you steal success and share nothing???

    I worked at Verizon Wireless (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, loads of training that is mostly taken seriously. You get to help people from the inside of a huge impersonal system.

    Cons

    You are a number, a single cog in a huge machine. Did a family member die? I got three days off to grieve. .. three days, then you better file an FMLA or they WILL fire you. They have ways of 'tightening the screws' like constantly keeping you on a written or 'final' warning.. I worked for 9 years and was on a 'final written warning' for 6 of those. It's a tool used by management to remind you that you are expendable, and it sucks.

    Advice to Management

    The best managers were the ones that knew how to play the game without letting it impact their teams. My favorite boss took the heat for everything, but he instilled loyalty by always being reasonable and honest.
