Bell Atlantic Careers & Info

Current CEO of Verizon: Lowell McAdam

Status: Bell Atlantic existed from 1983 through 2000 and is now known as Verizon

Bell Atlantic, headquartered in Lower Manhattan in New York City, started out as primarily a phone service provider based in Philadelphia with service available to parts of Pennsylvania, Virgina and New Jersey. The company was officially created after the forced AT&T breakup in 1984. In 1997, Bell Atlantic merged with Regional Bell Operating Company in New York City. This added New York and Maine to the Bell Atlantic coverage area. The Bell Atlantic name was maintained until the 2000 acquisition of GTE. Bell Atlantic companies included:

• New Jersey Bell Telephone Company
• Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of Maryland
• Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of West Virginia
• Diamond State Telephone Company
• Bell Telephone Company of Pennsylvania

Bell Atlantic careers included customer services, technical and management positions. Working at Bell Atlantic was described as a mostly positive experience based on employee assessments. The company was said to be a good place to work with friendly co-workers, good pay compared to other similar businesses, and a good benefits structure.

Bell Atlantic was a steady employer that hired on a regular basis. Several employees noted the ability to advance for those who stayed with the company. Today, Verizon has remained a steady employment rate, with more of an emphasis on tech jobs to keep up with advances in the telecommunications industry. Bell Atlantic, unlike similar companies, did not experience a lack of demand for its product. The demise of Bell Atlantic occurred because of mergers and acquisitions and the emergence of a new image with a new company name.
