Unix system administration (Current Employee), San Francisco, CA – July 4, 2012
Pros: big corporation; standard benefits
Cons: managers are clueless; pay is below market
My review is a bit stilted in that I am in a company that was bought by MCI then MCI was bought by Verizon and we just rode along with the deal. Once we were Verizon we were sucked dry; a once very profitable area we saw them dump many unprofitable clients on us from their hosting and other divisions that could not support those accounts. Gradually – more... we became unprofitable due to their gross mismanagement. It was a sad progression. Also, they did a re-org about every 6 months to a year and shuffled us around each time. – less

Affiliate-Engineer (Current Employee), Muntinlupa, Philippines – September 12, 2013
Verizon is a good working environment where I learned how to deal people with different culture and personalities. Aside from the technical and management training provided by company, health benefits is also a plus.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Fresno, CA – August 27, 2013
Great Benefits, great pay, the goal is to sell with integrity but that's not exactly what happens. 5 out of 7 Sales reps i worked with were liars and did not sell with integrity, some didn't even know the product well enough to sell it. they relied on fake stories and looks to sell to poor people who did not have a use for these products. Hated that – more... i would try to sell with honesty but was pushed to sell with lies. – less

Pros: had big place for dinning and rest area
Verizon wireless, was great place to work in with friendly staff members. It was very busy with more than 10 telephone lines and over 100 employees. I learnt to multi-task and be accurate at the same time. The hardest part of the job as receptionist was to memorize names for over 100 people. I enjoyed the multicultural and non- judgemental environment.
