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

    Pros

    Very casual workplace, in terms of business attire, group activities (such as gaming and social club afternoons), work from home when required, people here are very friendly and tend to work as a team. Leading edge technology when you work in the right department, great industry ties such as SANS and ACSC.

    Cons

    Professional services team tend to hand over unfinished work to the customers and leave it to SOC analysts to complete. Updates regarding contracts and career progression can be hard to obtain.

    Great commissions - 45%/55% split. If you’re good you can make 200k +, Great people.

    Cons

    Targets starting to become ridiculous, unfair environment - management help a select few in the office, if you’re not one of the favourites you’re sucking wind.

    I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work/life balance is good. Compensation. International exposure. Training opportunities.

    Cons

    Lack of management backing. Career development. Lots of red tape. International traction in interactions with US mother ship is hard. They preach values, they are lived on the ground, but not in management. If you are not involved with 5G in the US you and what you do don't matter. At all.
