    Great career launch pad, Verizon name carries weight

    Apr 27, 2021 - Associate Manager - Business Development in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    • Many areas of opportunity to contribute and grow outside of your main role • Great benefits, 401k matching, flexible time off, ability to travel to visit teams • Extremely well developed diversity & inclusion efforts • The Verizon name carries real weight in the digital media, advertising and tech space. Putting in time really helps your resume/LinkedIn when looking for your next gig.

    Cons

    • Verizon Media went through years of acquisitions and reorgs that slowed progress and caused infernal confusion. Went through multiple new managers and upper management in 5 years. Company is just now coming off of the bumpy trend. • Recent selloffs of brands and shuttering legacy products impacted morale • Some of the most hard working people are here, but also some people are just here for a check. Definitely have to navigate individual work ethics.

    Terrible Place to work

    Sep 23, 2021 - Producer in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits + insurance is not terrible

    Cons

    The entire corporate structure needs to be updated. Managers are not trained and HR reps who are working to train them are overworked/have quit after 2 months. The company has a rigid leadership structure and middle managers + upper management has no idea where the company is headed.

    A whirlwind of chaos

    Aug 29, 2019 - Client Services Consultant in Hillsboro, OR
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great People work here, friendly and dedicated to their jobs. Pay is fair enough. Vacation hours are plentiful. Free food in the cafeteria. Mobile phone for employee and discounts on Verizon service for employee and immediate family.

    Cons

    No one knows who does what. Documentation is lacking for a lot of jobs. Upper management that is a holdover from the pre-buyout days tends to be competitive to the point of betrail. The culture is ridiculously left-leaning and as such tends to have a bias against males, and the diversity hires are not always the best choice for the job and often are a detriment to the team. Not enough hours in the work-day to complete all tasks, most nights are spent with a couple of hours in my home office working on a task of some sort.

    No hope...

    Aug 23, 2019 - Product Management in Sunnyvale, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pays somewhat competitively, especially if you come from Yahoo!

    Cons

    Keep losing traffic on its sites. Upper management has poor understanding of the business. No clear strategy to turn around. Verizon operates it like a financial management company.

    Females be warned!

    Aug 10, 2019 - Social Media in Playa Vista, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The only good thing I can say about this company is that you are given a lot perks in terms of free food and monthly events, there are also a few real, quality people the rest are unprofessional and petty.

    Cons

    One of the biggest downsides of working at Yahoo is that as a female your opinions are not respected. The managers are young and inexperienced men who do not equally value all team members. Instead of being an innovative and forward moving company, Yahoo is stuck in the past. They also pay women significantly less than men for having the same job title and experience. Upper management and management make you believe that they want you to success and grow and include women in the process but this is all for show and to get you to accept the role.

    Current Contractor

    No contractor conversion

    Apr 22, 2019 - Editor in Playa Vista, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Free lunch, good pay, there are some truly good people ... cons sadly outweigh the pros

    Cons

    - no conversion of contractors who are valuable members of the team. - no rewards for good work, the team is mostly NY based, if you are in the LA office you are often forgotten about - upper management picks favorites and if you are not one of them... good luck - lots of layoffs (multiple acquisitions in 2 years -- Oath, then Verizon) - no benefits or 401k if you are a contractor - no one really feels safe, lots of people are constantly looking for new jobs Some else wrote "after the acquisition, Yahoo became just another corporate cold environment" -- they are right
