    Senior Software Engineer in Reading, England
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Verizon

    Pros

    Job flexibility - that's it

    Cons

    Anonymous cog in the big corporate machine, perpetually being downsized and nickel and dimed on pay while exec award themselves big raises. Squeezed out by offshoring for same reason - if you ain't Indian and prepared to work for peanuts then you're not going anywhere. Where the hell do they think the next generation of senior technical direction is going to come from ?
