Read lots of posts about AT&T but see less about Verizon. Heard that AT&T is a large Corp like atmosphere and overall isn’t the best for employees...What’s Verizon like? Especially with all the Oath folks too...how does everyone like it? Interested in knowing what life is like at a competitor! Talk about comp too plz!

    VZ is unique - it truly depends on the org you join and the leadership. I’ve seen solid leaders and horrible leaders...like anywhere. VZ, to me at least, seems to collect mediocre leadership and likes to promote them quickly. VZ also tends to spend wildly on acquisitions then fails to integrate and invest in them - some strange fantasy that they’ll magically coalesce and contribute mightily to the top line. Let’s not forget the layoffs every year in Q4 (usually). There are plenty of bright spots though...some great benefits, some great learning oppty, good tech and, for the most part, VZ delivers better than the competition.

    As a consultant for Vz, they’re too weak and too slow. They can’t seem to afford any quality engineers and have to outsource to American consulting firms filled with Indians or Indian consulting firms, also filled with Indians traveling temporarily for the project. They are not a tech company and their management is unorganized.

    Oath is a shitty place right now due the latest rift. Revenue is continuing to dwindle and frankly new product ideas are absolute trash. Imagine an updated profile sign in widget is worthy of a demo ...

    Vz core however is pretty chill esp on product innovation side. Cruise along and get paid without much stress.

      No it doesn’t. Unless you’re marketing, which is like being on Mars and doesn’t count.

      They do pay above average for eng roles if you negotiate right. They low balled me when I got offer, pulled them up 30k more and they agreed.

    They just riffed most of their developers (about 2000 of them) and outsourced the work. Some packages are still being offered.

    I worked there for four years in sales in VES. When they laid me off, I never felt more relieved in my life. Would not recommend Verizon to anyone.

    Easy peasy. WLB probably can’t be beat. Pay blows.
