Verizon Employee Review

Place going downhill fast

Apart from the low-skilled, over paid, highly strung clique, obsequious teams associated with sales functions fueling a toxic micro-management culture spawning bad practices, it was a reasonable place to work. The place had literally good stories (capabilities) to tell "on paper", reality and delivery though was another story! Unfortunately, deadwood ended up making it into low, middle and regional management positions and stayed on for years stifling any innovation and advancement. The business results and failed processes showed this for years. The place has been on a sharp decline, any good results displayed are highly questionable and probably due to creative accounting yet to be audited. "Leadership" in the region were literally unqualified in their craft, but greatly skilled at being haughty and narcissistic. Luckily the region has a rich US mothership to prop them up. Many there are only able to pretend to add value and fortunate enough to be leeching rewards off the few cash cow clients that they inherited from many years ago whom they didn't even personally win or bring on board. If you like sucking up though, you will thrive or even get promoted to help run the place further into the ground. They have this thing called the Credo and an emphasis on volunteering. That is supposed to be positive guiding behaviours for all employees, sounds good right? However, some of the behaviours observed was anything but living the Credo, it was hypocritical and highly farcical to watch. The place really needs a hard reset and a good place to start would be clearing the chaff from -

A very toxic environment with incompetent management

There was unnecessary levels of management due to the fact that the manager in charge didn't have an understanding of the business, and lacked personal skills. The workplace culture was toxic, employees time and tasks being micro-managed, an indication of very poor management. The hardest part of the job was to focus on the job on hand, whilst dealing with the politics and the systematic targeting of employees. The culture was not conducive to any growth or learning. This was the absolute worst company I have ever worked for, and it is unfathomable that this culture was tolerated by the business.

When the American Management decided it was going to run the Australian group from America with American culture it went down hill

When the American management decided it was going to run the Australian group from America with American culture it went down hill. They wanted their procedures and systems that were in place there but not here implemented and used, chaos ran supreme and they would not listen that they had not been implemented.
