    Former Employee - Sales in Boston, MA

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

    Pros

    Base salary and commission
    not as cut throat as other commission work
    was decent money for the work you do and never felt overbearing.

    Cons

    retail hours
    market over saturated
    All in all I didn't mind my stay at at&t but you start to get the urge for a big boy job eventually. the retail hours and rules make you feel inaccessible to the rest of your family if they are working 9-5

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better incentives

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people Comp is ok, nothing to scream about, merit increases are a joke. The company is completely driven to the stock price and shareholder value. Mobile is hot. Machine to machine and Cloud applications.

    Cons

    Layoffs (surpluses) occur every year. Budget /business funding takes forever such that a product can be without funding till august of a calendar year. Budget cuts are constant. Mostly internally focused despite the "focus on customer" campaign

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on reducing process time , overlays, layers of groups checking on other groups.

    Pros

    AT&T is a big company. It has a strong business model. Company has cash inflow and projects are budgeted. It is not going anywhere for some time.

    Cons

    Since it is a big company, there are some bureaucracy processes that slow down things at time. You have to be patient.

    Former Employee - Account Executive in Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Account Executive in Boston, MA

    I worked at AT&T full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits- 401k: contribution matching up to 6%
    Health- Medical, Dental, Vision
    Job Security- It's a big company, so this could go either way. They're not going anywhere anytime soon, but that's not a guarantee that your job isn't.

    Cons

    "too many cooks in the kitchen"
    dishonesty to customers
    Again, it's a big company, so it's often hard to get things accomplished

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your moral compass...it's still in there somewhere
