    Pros

    Verizon Wireless has a very good benefits package and overall is competitive for compensation. I was a former Alltel Employee converted to a VZW employee during the buy out and I personally think that Alltels compensation was better.

    Cons

    Alot of micro management and too many employees working at one time in my store. When working sales Id rather have less employees so the sales opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to be better at giving positive feedback to employees. We all know when we do something thats not good because we hear about it from two assistant managers and the store manager but how about letting us know when we do something good.
