How do people feel about working at Verizon Digital Media Services? I've heard the culture is crap and they treat people like dirt.
The brains trust has left the company and all thats left is Hyenas bickering for power. Rampant discrimination and 'Kiss-ass' culture.

    Not sure about Verizon Corporate, but Oath is a bit soulless. They only care about the bottom line and not the people.
    Yahoo culture took a big hit after being acquired (not sure about AOL when it was their turn).
    Integration is messy with e-staff and vps jockeying for power, which means the best decisions aren’t always being made.

    I didn’t personally experience/see any discrimination. Ass kissers aren’t unique to Oath. There’s talent still there, but most have moved to greener pastures.

    I’d expect things to get worse overall before they get better.

      VDMS was formed after a few different acquisitions. Culture is pathetic. Its no surprise people are threatened with layoffs.People leave after a year or two. Engineering is a joke. Save yourself the trouble and look for a company with good culture

      There's more project managers and Product managers than there are engineers. That should tell you the sort of place this is..

    VDMS pre merger was pretty good and even after the merger it has some decent perks. But it's direction is being directed by Oath. Oath is the merging of AOL and Yahoo and that is just as bad of an idea as it sounds like.

    Avoid like the plague. The whole oath thing sucks. Place is a disaster. Horrible culture. Terrible, just terrible place to spend your days.

      Poor culture is an understatement.

    Its a idiotic place. There's no fairness. Managers suck up to the Directors(who are not worth 2 cents). Code is filthy, no code reviews and project direction. Compensation is peanuts. You'll regress in every way if you work here.
    Do yourself a favor and find a job elsewhere.

    Lol. Glad I didn't go ahead and accept the offer which looked shady as there was no stock grant. I heard people are actually threatened with layoffs and disciplinary action by the so called directors if they complain.

    Smart people left or were “managed out”. Taken over by Telco dna. Don’t confuse them with a tech company.

    Good people at VDMS, but today the offices are like a ghost town. Hiring has also nearly grinded to a halt these past 6 months or so. Very little idea of what the vdms role is within Oath.

    That is about it. Bad culture. Bad leadership. Bad decisions. No innovation. If you are motivated by getting fired, or layoffs...it is a great place.
