    [Verizon Business formally MCI] a decent employer but somewhat hampered by size and organizational structure

    Operations Technician (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent work environment, good company value (emphasis on providing quality)

    ConsNot a very dynamic environment, not many opportunities to contribute to areas beyond ones own role, lack of communication from management, average salary, hard to advance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide employees with more opportunities to contribute ideas and give them the chance to do their best for the company. Large amount of talent sits wasted by "gate keeping" middle management. Provide more career development options and encourage development.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Flexible hours, poor culture, no progression or development.

    Finance Xxxx (Current Employee) Sydney

    ProsAbility to work from home, flexibility around hours as well. Work to complete the job on hand, not by the clock.

    ConsRedundancies have left behind a culture of each man for his own. Too much whinging but no action action taken to resolve ongoing problems. Working environment and culture very poor. Communication is almost non-existent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess talk more action.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Melbourne

    ProsGreat culture, flexible conditions and work / life balance. World leading networks and solutions. Feels good to be part of a growing business with a strong parent company providing financial backing

    ConsGrowth outside the US can be patchy; up and down. The trend is upwards! If you are based in small satellite offices you have to remind yourself that you are part of a global leader from time to time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep investing outside the US. We have the best product mix, and our Cloud offerings will beat the competition if we keep investing in them!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
