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.

      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.

      on the Verizon side. This is the feeling I get for the direction of the whole company though.w

  • 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!
