    I have been working at Verizon full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits. US based company: so if you really impress your bosses, you'll be able to jump quickly. As you get promoted, your chances to do something different reduce.

    Cons

    Less Opportunities to learn and work on something of your choice. Language problem: Even though company rules strictly ask employees to use English as a means of communication, that is very rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please avoid micro managing by managers

    Pros

    Office culture, Good work life balance.

    Cons

    No promotions. Too much politics in VDSI. No vision for Business Analysts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business Analysts are not used and there is no growth plan for them. The top VDSI think developers are everything and business analysis is a support work.
