Sr. Scala Spark Developer (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MISeptember 23, 2016
they gave me a project that I desired. As a contractor, I couldn't have asked more. The girls there are hot and easy to be picked up. Saturdays are usually holidays and you can come in nude as they have strict 'NO' dress code on that day.

24 x 7 high call volume small call center
Security Analyst (Current Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXSeptember 23, 2016
Every day is a new day, never know what type of call or fax or email your your going to recieve. Bomb threats, hostage barricades, to 911 traces then next call could be 80 year old customer upset over a hang up call. Hardest part is the 60 days rotation. Going to days then graveyard and working weekends and holidays. With 20+ years with the company.
Pros
great pay
Cons
24 x 7 schedule with small crew

A GREAT place to work!
Process Manager (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXSeptember 22, 2016
I was part of the Architecture, Standards and Planning division of Verizon during the merge of GTE and Bell Atlantic. I looked forward to going to work every day and supporting the Executives in all needed processes. Time Management, Supply ordering, RFP/SOW tracking, implementation of incentive programs, investigated employee issues and resolved. Worked as an HR arm and conducted entrance and exit interviews. Involved in all processes surrounding adding employees and contracted consultants. Worked closely with approved Vendors/Suppliers.
Pros
Diverse setting - worked with various cultures
Cons
none

Excellent compensation for driven individuals, requires thick skin
Solutions Manager (Current Employee) –  North CarolinaSeptember 22, 2016
Verizon as a company is an awesome employer with great benefits and compensation. You must be driven to meet high expectations and work tirelessly during peak seasons. Its hard to maintain balance with family or social life due to unpredictable schedules and the customers can be quite rude at times so you must have a thick skin. Overall the company has been good to me financially, not so much mentally.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Work/life balance; working tirelessly to please disgruntled customers

Downsizing Business Portion and Offshoring Operations
Service Delivery Manager (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXSeptember 22, 2016
Pay was a little above average, but the amount of work expected was utterly ridiculous. No standardization of reports or policies. Every account was handled differently. The majority of the issues came from upper management.
Pros
Remote Position
Cons
Policies and Procedures were not standardized.

Very demanding,minimum training,benefits and pay great
Central Office Technician (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VASeptember 22, 2016
If your looking for great benefits and descent pay working for Verizon is great. If your looking for work and home balance this would not be ideal. Verizon is union based, therfore everything is mainly run on seniority so working all holidays, no choice on vacation days and no choice on working hours is a giving if your not a senior employee. This is a 24/7 employment,which means you will be subject to multiple shifts, no consideration for family life. You also would be subject to driving distances for your job location. There are 3 to 4 year contracts with company and union, so there are possible strikes. You don't have to join the union but in Maryland and Washington DC you still have to pay union dues.
Pros
Benefits, pay wages
Cons
Minimal family life, work location distance, minimum training

LEAD Solutions Manager (Current Employee) –  Portland, ORSeptember 22, 2016
To move up in Verizon Corporate you need to be willing to push yourself to be better than your peers while also helping to develop them to be successful. Often times, the job role is not as rewarding as it could be, but the compensation is great in comparison to other jobs in the same spectrum.
Pros
High reward environment, technology, great compensation compared to levels in other companies.
Cons
High Stress, non-consistent work hours, difficult work life balance.
