    Micro managed and its in a wharehouse that looks like a office, moral in office is low cause of the continuous hassell when you're not make your sales

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Always on the forefront of technology. Very team oriented company. Great benefits and retirement plan. AT&T offers constant training to always keep you ahead of the curve. Great compensation to the most successful.

    Cons

    Like any successful company they are very numbers based. Saturated markets sometimes makes quotas difficult. Some upper management tend to operate on a fear based level.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I would have is to do everything possible to keep moral up. When the fun of working is replaced with the fear of losing a job, tension rises and the entire group suffers because of it.

    Nice 401k. Salary is okay. Great training opportunities.

    Pros

    Benefits are great especially Dental. Good employment opportunities

    Cons

    Management is inconsistent. Employee morale seems to be low on the list of "things to improve list". Some "new opportunities" are not promotions but lateral moves. Pay seems to be out of line with the industry. Do your homework on the position you are applying for before accepting a position.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and when there are Manager to peer meetings listen to your subordinates because they tell you will help you in the long run
