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

    Pros

    Very fair time-off policies as long as you read the guidelines properly. You never get the feeling of "why does he get all this time off" or "How come she gets to leave early" because it's easy to keep track of how much time you have available. Benefits are reasonably priced, and you get a bunch of affiliate discounts. Pay is very good even if you put in little effort, but if you do work hard the payoff is very noticeable. DOES A VERY GOOD JOB OF KEEPING EMPLOYEES INFORMED OF FUTURE CHANGES. Individual achievement and effort is noticed and rewarded.

    Cons

    Very little interaction with other employees aside from lunch/breaks. No 'downtime' between calls. like all sales jobs, high-pressure to exceed sales targets. Time off, while generous and fair, lacks flexibility for one-off cases. Because work-time is so busy, very little time to look into internal career advancement unless you're willing to put in time outside of work hours.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay - they have a lot of great programs to help employees with work life balance. Many different locations if you want to move/relocate.

    Cons

    Many changes going on lots of transformations aka layoffs. They want young people with masters degrees. Too many people in leadership roles only there to squeeze $$$ out of the company and don't truly care about their employees. Company going in too many directions.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't seem to develop and coach employees like they did in the old days. All depends on what dept you are in though. Too many high paid directors and managers and not enough real team work.

    Pros

    Not sure if there are any pros left to working at VZW...

    Cons

    70+ hour work weeks, no support from management, no training, insufficient staffing in IT

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees and give them some support. Also provide them with some kudos, giving out a $200 gift card for working an additional 30 hours to ensure the iPhone 6 launch went off without a hitch is just a slap in the face.

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

    Pros

    Insurance Aetna and bbc.Sing on bonus of 1000 but most commit to a year of employment. 50 percent of phone lines data and line charge. Cable discount. Pizza and other fatty food. Vending machines, coffee and more candy. Own computer not facing customers face to face.

    Cons

    Quotas no set to be reached. Pay is awful for the tri state area starting at 23,000 yearly. If there is a state of emergency and two feet of snow you gotta open till 12pm the next day. Nothing but fat food!!! Vending machines and poor souls that consume them. No thrive on having the workers grow. De acts will follow you every month. Fraud is big!!!!! And it will count against you. This job is awful!!!

    Advice to Management

    Better quota and better care of your employees. Not holding fraud against your workers. Snow is dangerous keep your employees safe not in a dangerous situation. Get the fat food of the building your killing your employees!!
