Information Technology Manager

IT Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Verizon full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLarge organization with large vendor relationships. Lots of locations.

ConsPoor management at the top level. Frequent layoffs, outsourcing to overseas locations which is reducing customer service. The company is more focused on cost savings due than anything else due to rapid lowering customer prices. The wireless division is the only one that is not suffering from losses.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out a way to retain good engineers in the US.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Old school management style with favoritism

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Alpharetta, GA (US)

I worked at Verizon full-time

ProsBenefits in general for a large size company

ConsToo much favoritism at the management level one of groups, you are being recognition for who you know and what you know. No benefits are worth for this kind of work environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementRefrain old timers at the management level from making decision on their own.

You better love Telecommunictions

Telephone Account Manager (Former Employee)
Alpharetta, GA (US)

I worked at Verizon full-time for more than a year

ProsBig company. You have the ability to move around when they close down your office or relocate your job. You can hide and do nothing as long as you look busy.

ConsBig company. Ant on an ant hill. Lots of passing the buck. Only a few people have the real information and they are harder to find then a needle in a haystack.

Advice to Senior ManagementWow...really? They didn't listen when I worked there...I'll save my breath.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
