    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time

    Pros

    Excellent place to gain experience on a wide range of technologies.
    Lots of fun projects.
    Great benefits.
    Clear path on the corporate ladder.

    Cons

    Workforce is incredibly imbalanced by contractors and excessive outsourcing- this has made business continuity unsustainable. That combined with an unrealistically overambitious business creates a stressful environment.

    Advice to Management

    Very few *successful* leadership styles involve aggressive yelling- if it's not working now it probably won't work anytime soon.

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you're smart and are able to program, you can stay here forever.

    Cons

    There is no reason to be a software developer here. There are a lot of good jobs in the area, and this isn't one of them.

    If you're good at you're job, you'll be overworked. If you're bad, you'll be kept on for six months to a year. If you're mediocre, you'll have the bad employees mooching off of you and the good employees upset and angry because you aren't as overworked as them. You're still overworked, but not as much.

    If you are mediocre or bad, try Verizon. Otherwise, move along.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management? If management was the type to read these comments, then they wouldn't have these problems.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary with great bonus at the time, excellent benefits and 401k options, discounts on company services depending on which BU you are in

    Cons

    Lots of cronyism, dishonesty and waste. Culture "Creedo" is a complete lie at most levels. No integrity from middle management. Lots of empire building and silo mentality. Going through a very rough time right now as they try to get rid of landline/FIOS and transition to wireless only, stay away for a few years until all the landline/FIOS is divested

    Advice to Management

    You always show your true colors by trying to ditch the unions! Profit, Profit, Profit!!! Your corporate greed is astounding.
