Hello guys,
I am so glad that I came across this forum and saw this community helping each other out. I hope you could help me out too with your experience.

Recently graduated and with an H1B visa, I received an offer from Verizon Media in their Ad dept. The compensation and benefits are great and this role is surely a step-up career wise. However, being on an H1B, I am really concerned with this company's instability and wanted your opinions on whether this move is worth the risk ?

Getting a job within 60 days (if laidoff) is tough. I did see a few posts about Oath/Verizon Media employees who were laid off recently and would love to hear the general sentiments about this company.

Thanks!

    Hey @ResMed, VZ has gone through a good deal of layoffs over the past few years and I think the worst is behind. Internally they feel like they have the right teams in the right spots and I feel they are going to give the teams a chance to shine now.

    That being said, VZ is a great place to make connections and grow; not a place to flourish. They have an old school mentality when it comes to hierarchy and roles that prevents them from being s great innovation company.

      OP
      Thanks for your note. Do you speak as a Verizon or Verizon Media employee?
      I tried to dig up some data on the performance and Verizon Media is the most struggling part of the Verizon business with a losing market share in ad tech. Hence, the hesitation.

  • VZ is worth so much a little paper cut from Verizon Media is just a smudge on the books. VZ board loves Guru. Just be prepared to handle low morale and land grabbing politics. But at least the food is good!

    Guys
    Anyone works for Verizon Product Management division? My friend recently got interview invitation for PM internship. She's an MBA.

    What type of questions she can expect? They have asked her to fly-in at NJ location.
