Great place to work
Enterprise Architect (Former Employee) –  Reading24 September 2018
projects on a scale not found anywhere else. Truly global company and customers. That global element means that customers always have something left field somewhere, sometimes it is a regulation change in China or Latin America sometimes it is a physical disaster and running to the clients aid. It is enlightening how when there is a disaster somewhere the senior management expedite decision making to dig clients out of a hole even when it's not really Verizon's issue.
Pros
career defining projects, customers everybody knows
Cons
buring the candle at both ends working conference calls with the US and Asia

Varied and challenging work environment
Global Equipment Implementation Engineer (Current Employee) –  Reading, Berkshire17 October 2017
Being part of a global organisation can be very challenging, having to take into account the different cultures we have to work with within the same team.

The workplace is very fast paced, I have learned to be very detail focussed and to bring in the most complex projects on time and to budget
Pros
Great atmosphere, healthcare and benefits
Cons
Sometimes very short deadlines require working long hours into the night

A typical day would be visiting sites in and around London and observing the engineering that was taking place. I would then sometimes return to the office and would generally help with errands and office work.
