    It's a large business and every business unit has its own culture and pressures.

    Senior Public Relations Manager (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe company genuinely wants people to enjoy working for AT&T. The leaders are smart and innovation is encouraged. There are lots of different jobs available within the company.

    ConsEverything is about making investors happy first and foremost. Life and work balance doesn't play a role in the people who advance in the company. Training is available through AT&T University.

    Sexed up atmosphere & Sexual Harassment at EBM Division

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe benefits are good, and there are many job opportunities within AT&T.

    ConsDon't join the EBM division. EBM is a new division within AT&T, and they try hard to be innovative and create a Google like atmosphere. Now that is a great idea.
    Unfortunately the execution is all wrong. Hiring is done on the basis of looks. There are a number of young woman in their 20s who all happen to look very attractive, who all dress very sexed up which is strongly encouraged, and who for the most part are not that competent. The middle management, Directors & above, treat that pool of young woman as their own private supply line of amusement. Affairs are common place. You would think that places likes this only exist only on TV shows like Mad Man. Disgusting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring some adult supervision to the EBM division, and hire on the basis of competence and NOT looks, and end the sexed up atmosphere and sexual harassment. It is disgusting.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
