    I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most stores have very friendly staff and very good benefits.

    Cons

    not very much opportunity for advancement and growth. Not very much opportunity to increase sales. Unattainably high sales targets. Retail hours where evenings, weekends, and holidays are a MUST.

    Advice to Management

    readjust quotas and targets to make them attainable.

    Pros

    Good benefits package Strong salary, although if you’re a manager, expect only 3% max pay increases y/y. Bonuses are were you get a nice chunk of change, and can expect to receive most of the target. The real money to be made is at the director level and above with Long term incentive payouts. Colleagues are talented. People are the best part of the job. Generous severance payouts. Care about the community,... great in a crisis. Opportunity to move around in different roles. A great place to start your career and build momentum.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work. A TON. Everything is a fire drill. Expected to be on call 24/7. If you’re not answering email by 7am or at 9pm, it’s going to be a problem. While the pay is good, it’s not in comparison to the hours you work. The senior leaders make an exorbitant amount of money as compared to the middle management. Culture is a problem. They preach work life balance but very few have it. It’s a... challenging business, very bureaucratic, difficult to make things happen quickly. Burn out is real. Watch your back, and your attitude. If they want to find a way to “move you along”, they will. Trust your gut. If you feel attacked or like someone is pushing you out, you better start looking for a job. Promotions are difficult past middle management. You’ll be a COG in the wheel.

    Advice to Management

    The day I left and said my goodbyes, almost everyone said, “you’re so lucky to be leaving.” I think that says everything about the culture and why so many people jump to raise their hand when there’s a voluntary separation package or jump for Joy when they’re RIF’d. The employees are smart, caring and hard-working so build a culture that isn’t about executives and shareholders getting rich, but about how Verizon... can help achieve the goals of its employees.

    I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay, very good benefits. Locally there were still some good people & teams to work with/on.

    Cons

    Leadership has shifted their primary focus from being the industry leader AND an outstanding place to work with a rich culture to just padding the bottom line to appease shareholders. I know it sounds cliche, but for those of us who were there in the young, hungry times of the company, this is literally what has happened. The joy (and there was once a lot of joy) is largely gone.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledging the wireless market has changed drastically in the last 5-7 years & growth isn't what it once was, the employees should still be treated positively. Recognition had become patronizing & was only lip service, b/c generally, the 'leader' giving it wouldn't recognize you walking down the hall any more. Don't just give lip service to the idea of the 'little guy' being what makes the day to... day go. Believe it. Respect the 'little guy' as a person. There don't have to be big $$ bonuses all the time to keep people happy (although taking them from us a few years back & telling us it was actually for our good left a terrible taste in many , many mouths), just remember they're people too. A GENUINE smile & GENUINE appreciation would go a long, long way.
