    I worked at AT&T full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    All of the people are smart, educated and great people to work with. The bureaucracy can be burdensome some times, but that is true with every large company , and most others.

    Cons

    Finance guys are winning the day by outsourcing most IT jobs. Not sure they are creating a better product though. Just a lot of finger-pointing and washing of hands when things go wrong with the contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    force your managers to cut costs, by running leaner teams to do the same work, rather than sending jobs out of the country.

    Received several promotions, and flexibility to work from home. Upper management is really taking strides to keep all levels of management in touch with initiatives and goals of top executive decision makers.

    Cons

    Diversity in Level 3 and 4 levels of executive management. Massive forced reduction among all departments within organization.

    Great place to start a career
