    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Head office support, good place to learn from the industry the best.

    Cons

    Terrible support on the local office, very limited opportunity for staffs outside of the US. Lack of knowledge and experience of the local management team, the A end B end setup is totally a disaster.

    Advice to Management

    Keep you head down and pay attention to the people you have in the local office and provide support, instead of stretching your head up to the head office to see what they are cooking and potentially waiting for the chance to move up...

    I worked at Verizon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues to work with, very intelligent. The training offered is also very informative. You also have the ability to work in other countries if you choose to

    Cons

    The culture and morale is very negative and there is a continual revolving door of people being hired and then let go

    Advice to Management

    I cannot really comment on giving any advice to management because they are not immune from being let go as well.

    Pros

    No micro management. Life work balance

    Cons

    As a sales executive there was no strategy to execute on. Products were often not competitive in the marketplace

    Advice to Management

    Top leadership needs to create a defined and concrete sales strategy and not leave it up to individual sales executives in each territory globally.
