I highly recommend staying away from Verizon. Someone very close to me was hired and subsequently laid off less than 6 weeks later. Their hiring is a mess right now and leadership is constantly slashing entire BUs with no regard to new hires or people that have been there for 20+ years.

Thank you for the feedback

A friend worked there for six years until taking a voluntary layoff package last spring. He had a variety of management roles over network operations, a marketing unit, and finance. He tried to make it work, but the politics and culture got to him eventually and he happily took the package as he was about to resign anyway. Some can make it work I’m sure, but I don’t think I’d recommend them based on what I heard from him.

How do I set this SC straight without totally squashing her spirits? For context, she wants to take on more management role and be my “peer” but she’s a brand new SC...she’s not close to being ready.
