They take care of their employees
A respected company that works well with their employees
It's all about numbers and not about people. If you actually want to help someone, this is not the right place for you. Expected to lie for commissions.
It’s a hard job being on the phone with people who expect you to be able to do what they want when the want it, and Verizon demanding all of these stats, while you are there confused because you literally don’t know what to do.
One of the best training programs and preparing you for the future. They teach you true customer service. Workplace etiquette. They know how treat their employees. Take ownership and management doesn’t require things from their employees to do that manage won’t do and they provide with the tools to be successful.
The customers could be tough but the staff is great and everyone helps each other
Decreased in feeling valued as I’ve become more tenured.
Verizon very rarely hires their contractors, and contractors, of course, have no access to any of the benefits, training, etc. that full employees have.
Not what it used to be.
Very few women employees in area I worked in. Little chance for women to advance to management . No women managers in area. I was only woman left working in my store.
Working at Verizon was a great experience for me earlier in my career.
It is a great company to work for. There are not many women here. Verizon Is always trying to change for the better and communications are not ignored. I feel their is opportunity and I am excited to see them grow.
Work here if you like being around chicken heads.
Marginally happy here. Salary and benefits keep me here. Leadership is suffering. No real promotions happening especially for vets and especially women, at least in my department.
Verizon is an extremely strict but dedicated employer. You cannot choose many things because seniority overrules, but there are so many good benefits and the ability to grow in the company is outstanding.
The environment in which i worked was great and was as to he laid off.
The code of conduct means lip service is given to treating everyone with respect, but the actual experience is far different.
This company did not allow for growth even when asked. I asked for job shadowing opportunities and projects with which to show my worth. Anything that became available was geared towards only sales representatives. This company hires non-sales focused roles but does not foster them. Much intelligent and capable individuals are lost to Verizon because of this.
HR is deceitful. Flexibility, family support, and pay turn out not as discussed during interview process. Nepotism is rampant. The top "boy" is funded by he's wife's money so he only plays at running the organization however he's never around. Sexual harassment isn't an issue but if you are not male you will not be invited to meetings, you will not get support, a corporate card, travel, opportunities for conferences....you are the help will your "manly betters" step on you.
District manager well known for sleeping with female employees who move up. Often condones poor behavior by other male management. Biased towards women in management.
Overworked and under staffed
Senior leaders show favoritism to men.
When I voiced my desire to advance into management in my career, but boss told me I would need to be nicer and make more friends. I asked him if he ever told a male manager that and he said no.
As an early-career, short-term contractor on a mobile app, I only witnessed a segment of the company and its policies in practice. That said, I'm happy to note that I actively saw women in management positions hiring and mentoring other women. It was the first time I'd experienced a workplace environment that not only encouraged the voices of women (including women of color and queer women) Verizon also took actions that proved that we were heard and not just appeased.
Very high stress atmosphere.
No concept or indifference to one's family life.
I've worked for Verizon for over 15 years. As a woman, I've felt fairly treated....but if I weren't I probably wouldn't know it....management is pretty hush-hush. My main issue lately is with the company laying off numerous people in our department over the last 5 years. The workers left behind are forced to do "ALOT more with less" - including new projects that we can't handle. I am salaried and often times have to work over 60 hours a week. That makes for very long days, but the workload is such that there is no choice. The other folks on my team are in the same boat - it is not because I'm a woman. It is even hard to take vacation or call-in sick. I have started looking for another job as I'm getting very burned out.
Women were used in middle management as work horses for delivery and oversight of projects, but never got past manager/director roles in equal numbers to their male counterparts, even though most females had a more diverse breadth of experience.
I cannot imagine a better place to work. I had an exceptional experience there. I worked there for 4 years, and I wish it hadn't been my first job out of college because I didn't realize how good I had it. I had almost all female colleagues and managers. They were extremely supportive and helped me grow. The men I worked with were great as well.
Great company to work for as a woman. Equal across the board for both woman and men.
While Verizon publicly professes to have a commitment to diversity, this commitment is very unevenly implemented within the company. The business segments within Verizon that are technology focused, such as cybersecurity and mCommerce, are extremely biased towards hiring and promoting exclusively men. These technology segments within the company are very difficult and very discouraging for women of color in particular, in terms of opportunities for good assignments and developing managerial skills.
I started to have issues with my manager who then spread sexist rumours about me within the organisation. I was undermined by my manager on a daily basis and labelled untrustworthy. If I complained to my manager I was called too "hormonal" or "overemotional". Holidays, time off for bereavement or emergencies, working from home all became extremely difficult to arrange when the men in my department had no problems. I started to show signs of stress but was too scared to take time off sick for fear that my position and reputation within the company would suffer further. After 2 years, I made a formal complaint but was given no support from HR or my manager's superiors,. It became harder to succeed and tasks were removed from my responsibility. Within 5 months of making the complaint to HR, I was made redundant. The whole time I got the distinct impression that if I had been a man, I would not have had the same issues or been labelled as harshly in the first place. So yes, you can have it all at Verizon, if you are a man.
Double standard. Women managers are often ignored on calls. Male managers telecommute regularly. Women managers are told they need to be onsite to be effective in the workplace.
