    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Verizon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    great compensation and bonus scheme

    Cons

    Silo management attitude to job roles, so minimal cross-over training, and tendancy to prefer recruitment from outside, rather then from within the company

    Advice to Management

    Try to train engineers in areas that the company is short on skills, and not rely on outside market to provide skilled and experienced engineers. This should be all large companies responsibilty, however skills shortage proves this does not happen.
