Pretty decent

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Verizon full-time

ProsGood pay, Strong Brand and a wide range of solutions to sell

ConsLeadership, Very complex and confusing internal systems and process ( Verizon has grown tremendously through acquisitions, so it's understandable. There are so many disparate teams, systems and processes that it's a nightmare navigating it.

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify Verzion Enterprise Solutions. Make it easier for employees to actually do their jobs, instead of wasting time in navigating internal structures and systems.

Good Company To Work With As An Employee

Analyst (Current Employee)
Chennai

I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood work life balance.
Better social responsibility.
Environment friendly.
Better work environment.

ConsDue to ineffecient management, few people are getting high amount of work load.
You shouldn't expect proper hike unless you work as a developer who is putting effort for more than 10 hours a day minimum.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease understand what's being done by your subordinates instead of just seeking the status.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
