Pros: healthcare, vacation, sti
Cons: work life balance, slow advanvement unless willing to relocate
Overall, Verizon has been a good company to work for and I have built most of my career and skills working for them. Leaders are very engaged, and they truly promote from within. The only real down side to Verizon is that there is no work life balance. If you want a good work life balance, you won't make an income that can support a family.
