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

    Pros

    Great 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

    Cons

    Growth 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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    I’ve worked for Verizon for over 4 years in different retail locations as a sales rep and manager. Now more than ever, Verizon promotes work/life balance and the employee experience above all else. Throughout the pandemic when many companies were laying people off, Verizon continued paying us our full salary as well as our at-risk commissions, even when we were only working a couple days a week for less than 6 hours. They encourage creativity and development unlike any other company I’ve ever seen, and the pay is pretty incredible for what we do. Likewise, the benefits are phenomenal and include a 6% match on your 401k.

    Cons

    Verizon is constantly making changes to the way they run their company, especially in the retail environment. While these changes are rejuvenating and exciting for some, this may be a major con to some people who appreciate the stability of their job roles and responsibilities.
