    Work Hard, Play Harder

    Sales Support Representative (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsSome of the pros is the ability to be promoted seamlessly. The pay is great and the benefits are awesome. You'll begin great friendships with your coworkers and after all the stress in the beginning, its a great place to work.

    ConsSome of the cons deals with the management. A store's management team is never consistent, never on the same page, and never at one store for too long before they're sent to another. If AT&T stores aren't meeting their daily sales goals then that's the reason why. In order for associates to succeed they have to be comfortable with a management style, but whenever the associate is finally balanced, the management team is changed again and the associates are blamed for the reason the store's sales are declining or stagnant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to learn how to be consistent and opportunities for development before coaching associates. Corporate management needs to become more involved with store meetings and store visits because the way that these retail level managers speak to their employees and treat their employees is saddening.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsThe benefits are second to none except there healthcare plans could use more work. The base salary is competitive.

    Quitting as soon as I can

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsGood amount of vacation time (10 vaca days, 8 PDOs...increases every 4 years or so). Most office positions are flexible about telecommuting. Good insurance

    ConsNO consistency across the organization. Promises made, but not fulfilled by management. Pay is SUPER low, especially for someone with a graduate degree. Job description was misleading. NOTHING is done to increase employee morale. No extra incentives for employees (ex, no coffee machine, no company Christmas party, no filtered water...little thing like this would show that the company cared about it's employees). Everyone you talk to , in different organizations and across the country, always complains about AT&T. Training was awful, not informative, did not prepare me for my job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow appreciation for your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Wire Technician Atlanta Ga

    Wire Technician (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsCool work environment and the ability to work alone and not have a boss over your shoulder all day

    ConsNo work home life balance
    My pay sucked but not everyone's did
    long days
    forced 6 day work weeks at times along with long hours
    tedious monitoring of safety very petty things will get you dinged but it part of the process
    too much to honestly name

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo more to get these guys home at a decent time no matter the season; give everyone their fair pay for the job description what it entails and the amount of work involved, something needs to be worked out as far as the mandatory w/e's

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
