I have been here for nearly 10 years and it has been my BEST job!

Associate Director (Current Employee)
Bedminster, NJ

I have been working at AT&T full-time

ProsI would say the career opportunities and the flexibility around your work schedule. There is telecommuting and I have advanced through the company fairly quickly!!!

ConsThe policies and processes change quickly so you always have to be on your toes. But I like a challenge!

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement employees need offices and we need to travel more to be more effective in creating, managing and sustaining teams. The fact that I manage people I have never met is awkward in some ways.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

sort of experience you would expect at a very large company

Senior Marketing Director (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 3 years

Proslots of different job opportunities
potential to move around and advance within company.
top management has a solid vision for the future, but may not be able to execute due to regulation, oversight and emlpoyee inertia

Consit's a big company with lots of people scattered all over the country who don't necessarily want to cooperate and stretch a bit to achive the "one AT&T" goal

Advice to Senior Managementkeep pushing your strategy down on the middle management ranks

Second level Technical Manager

Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee)
Middletown, NJ

I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 10 years

ProsYou work with the latest communications equipment.
Test the newest telecommunications equipment.

ConsFrustrating when one part of the test was not set up properly and You would have to reset all equipment and computer programs.

Advice to Senior Managementconsider when a member of the staff has been out on sick leave or had been working on another project, give them the current results and tests that were already completed. In other words try to bring your people placed on a new project time to be brought up to date.

Ups and downs

Retail Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at AT&T part-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat pay, very flexible schedule for students, lots of vacation time and a great medical and dental benefit package including 401k and stock in the company. Relaxed dress code and jeans on Saturdays.

ConsCommission structure changes monthly. The way you are ranked changes monthly. For the first few years I was with the company it was pretty straight forward but recently they have added a large amount of products that you are expected to sell to every customer every time with a big smile in your face. The company manipulates the commission structure to pay you the most for the product they are putting the most emphasis on the most. This month our ranking is based on people signing up for pre paid debit cards and signing into the app and these things can get you written up if you don't hit the numbers. Employees are in a union so it's hard to get fired so there are a lot of people on ATT welfare and just there for the hourly check and it shows. The managers document everything they say to you that's work related and have you make commitments and if you can't do what is asked of you they will write you up. It's a tough job but if you have a knack for sales then it isn't a bad place to work for.
