    Pros

    Big budget projects Respected employees Treated employees well Job security (until AT&T) Interesting industry (telcom, internet, wireless, TV)

    Cons

    Highly conservative "corporate" culture Some systems were antiquated Some procedures were nonsense Some deadwood employees... but most OK

    Advice to Management

    Hope Duane Ackerman is enjoying the new island he purchased with part of his $$ multi-million golden parachute. Thanks Duane for helping turn the telcom industry into a near monopoly via heavy consolidation/mergers and blowing up thousands of jobs for real people.

    Pros

    They always had room for advancement. Started out in inside sales and within 3 years was working on global accounts

    Cons

    If you chose to move up the ladder you also had to move. Not everyone wanted to be in Atlanta or Nashville.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was always fair and to the point

    Pros

    The compensation, benefits, work environment, and the ability to work in any depatment in the organization at any location globally. They will train you to do any jobs in the company. The current CEO started as a technician in the field and worked his way up to CEO.

    Cons

    There is no flexibility in scheduling. Bellsouth/Att does not care about you going to school, family, or immediate health. They want you to be at work everyday, with 12 hours of overtime weekly, and work 6 days a week if they can convience you to do so. No matter how valuable you really are, they will fire you or downsize a complete department without hesitation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what employees are saying and try to help employees cope with difficult situations, even if you cannot change the situation. Do not act like every change is always good change.
