    Pros

    Mature, global, multi-product company. There is no worries about it closing. If you have the experience there are places to grow.

    There are bad apples in every barrel. Many times you have to report to them. It can be dog eat dog.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that without the people there would be no metrics to apply. Get the priorities adjusted so that the people become important again.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Benefits were good, Work from home was just beginning to become supported in my area before I left, Some of the good items vs where employees were not treated as fairly had to do with management and enforcement.Time off was fair

    Cons

    There is definitely a "club" in most of management and many that do not play the politics end up doing the lions share of work with less "perks". This is dependent on department. Much of the "technical support talent" is being outsourced with only skeletal and management support.Over work and not good life/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your "talent" and do not "misuse" them in the wrong role.
