    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    3g and 4g Coverage. Most companies say they have the coverage until you review their maps and then ask where their towers are. ? Big difference when they think 7 miles for a tower is accurate for getting full usable signal. Smart Phones down to Basic Phones. Covers the user spectrum . Tables to WiFi devices. Data is everywhere. Home wireless services improved and usable if you travel.

    Cons

    They never say they are the cheapest, Because you pay for the upkeep of towers and services.
    Limited at times to the warranty of the device from the device manufacture forcing for Insurance to have to be purchased at times.
    Departments are not seemless with knowledge. Cross training should be done . Until you get to specific departments. Data should only be responsible for data, billing for billing etc. Customer Service should not be a LARGE dept of unequal knowledge to try to assist customers.

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation was good, but came at a price.

    Cons

    Working for Verizon Wireless was one of the worst experiences I have had in my professional life. There is no direction, and no guidance, and you are held accountable for everything that is given to you, even though you are not told how to do your job. The management will try to pile on as much work as you and your team are able to handle, and then add more, and then will hold you accountable if the work is not done on time. There is also preferential treatment. If you are an employee you will always be treated better, and will get the better projects. Also, if you are a Muslim, you will be treated badly. You will be treated better if you are Caucasian. One more the thing, the hours are extremely long, so do not hope to maintain a personal life. My best advice is do not work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be replaced by people who understand proper processes. They are horrible people, who will stab you in the back given a chance.
