"Since early 2000, now Verizon, has been the source of my financial existence. We have not been compensated nowhere near the standard means for this career in this area. We've seen CEO made to step down cause of wrong doings, but leaving with a multI million dollar severance. While the rest of us make do with our minute salaries. I would like to see a very profitable company like Verizon supply all their employees with free mobile devices (of their choice) every 2 years with unlimited talk, text and data usage. It's sad to see how many of us who have phones on other carriers and we work for Verizon. That to me, speaks volume. I think loyalty is a lost art form."

Incident Response Team Lead

"MSS with Verizon Business, at times is more interested in profit than security. Information Assurance for DoD customers is balanced with providing support for at times six to seven other commercial or federal customers from the same pool of employees. Very few dedicated staff, instead share resources that are overworked are expected to provide support, and the level of support is low, as these shared resources know, if they mess up they can just go back to supporting their commercial customer and have less work for them to have to do. Smoke and mirrors comes to mind, in regards to what we hide from our customers, who think everything is just fine."
