Manager

Great pay, great benefits, a lot of room to learn and grow. If you want to succeed and get to an executive level you're required to move around different locations as you start to get groomed for a larger role.

morale is low; on the surface, gender diversity is supported but there are a lot of politics at play behind the scenes. I would recommend working to the best of your capability, networking to the highest level possible, keeping your eyes & ears open for advancement opportunities, and going for them as soon as they present themselves.

Ensure that you are mentally healthy and strong enough to constantly be coached to certain behaviors and be willing and able to handle a constant high stress environment. Make sure you have a healthy outlet for your stress.

    Once you're promoted to supervisor or higher, your options for flexibility are a bit more limited as well as the fact that you're normally "coached" or given a speech about your need to be at work all the time to set an example for front line employees. So even if you're granted flexibility for a situation, it's still looked at negatively which is another source of stress

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / unpaid

    You are given 6-8 weeks paid maternity leave in addition to another 8 weeks of paid "parental leave" which used to be referred to as baby bonding time. This is definitely one of the best benefits of the job.

    I'm unable to select only one thing that would make me stay. They need to improve compensation for management, improve work-life balance, and reduce the amount of stress supervisors endure due to unrealistic expectations they're held to.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It would depend on what type of job the woman is looking for and how much stress she would be willing to endure from her employment.

Verizon is a great place to work. There are some places they could improve, especially for women with children who have special needs. They are really trying to get women into more leadership positions.

    This employer offers lots of pto, and flex time to adjust schedules as needed. Flex is only available once per week, and only 3 weeks of any given month. They are unwilling to adjust schedules for recurring Dr. Appts.

It is hard to network and move up in the company. Most times you are offered lateral positions.

This company is trying to be more female friendly, but it has not extended to the field sales offices entirely. (I cannot speak to the culture at HQ) Getting more women into their B2B sales teams is a challenge that they have not appropriately addressed. Also, the sales offices can be ripe with male chauvinism and little progress has been made to change that. While steps are being made through their women's ERGs, it remains a very male driven environment. If you are able to establish a good brand with leadership, then you will succeed and get promoted. If you do not fit into their narrow definition of a successful woman, then you will struggle to get promotions. Progress is being made but it sometimes falls short and hits the wrong tone. As a result, the culture remains an old-school and male dominated environment.

    If you are liked then you have a bit more flexibility. I've also seen single mothers discriminated against by male managers as the male managers have support systems and don't understand when the single mother is the only person who can go pick up her sick kid/ drop the kid off at school.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. If you fit into upper management's perception of who a woman in business should be (conservative dress, can hang with the boys, don't cause too much of a stir when sexist things are said) then you are able to fight to get promoted. If you do not, it will be a struggle. If you are in sales, then your quality of life/ family-friendly environment depends entirely upon the sales leader in your office - culture differs office by office for sales. I cannot speak to the culture at the HQ.

Business Account Manager

Sales

January 1970

As with any company, there are pros and cons to working at this one. They offer a diverse portfolio of products and services, so you will always feel like you are learning as new technology emerges. Depending on the Manager, you may be able to negotiate a flexible schedule. Based on my observations, few women are hired into the business sales department and even less are promoted into leadership roles throughout the organization.
