    I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the managers shouldn’t be managers this is the reason so many good staff have left .

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand who actually gets things done.

    I worked at Verizon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job is kind of tough, you are constantly pushed by the customer and there is no safe net or buffering. Hence, it forces you to be more efficient with time. It actually made me very seasoned engineer and absolutely technical lead in the next office both technically and mentally.

    Cons

    It’s either going to make you or break you if you dont mind micro management and not getting appreciated and recognised for the good job you do. Dont join if you are network engineer, because it’s a security environment with little network components and you will get laughed at if dont know how exactly does a firewal works I have never got the time or approval to do the $8000 budget training that they promote in the job ads at the time.
