Instructional Designer - Contractor

Instructional Designer Contractor (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

I worked at AT&T as a contractor for more than a year

ProsFriendly team members. Great sense of family. I felt appreciated for what I do. My director went out of her way to let me take time off when I need to, then made up later.

ConsClients change their mind a lot at the last minute. No budget for raises or bonuses. Full time position is offered only when you are agree to move with your own expense.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaking contractors move to different cities in order to take on a full time positions with their own expense is not a good policy. The company will loose many talents.

All good but the management

The best part about AT&T is working with caring and ntelligent people who challenge you to exceed your own expectations!

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Richardson, TX

I have been working at AT&T full-time for less than a year

ProsThis is the first time where I did not think about working somewhere for just 3-5 years....the opportunities for personal development and career growth at AT&T are endless. I know that if I ever want a change of pace or another challenge, I can find new and exciting developmental opportunities within the organization. If you need proof, just ask someone who works there! It is not uncommon to meet someone who has worked at AT&T for 10+ years in many different roles and business units.

AT&T is more than a wireless company---we're a technology company and we're driving innovation in the marketplace today! Whether it's Digital Life, Connected Car, Emerging Business Markets, or Big Data---you can find your place in an exciting, challenging, and equally rewarding role.

AT&T also CARES and INVESTS in its employees beyond a competitive total rewards package. We have an extensive list of resources available to us including mentoring opportunities, employee resource groups, philanthropic opportunities, and more!

You also get GREAT discounts on products and services from AT&T as well as other companies.

ConsThere are opportunities to achieve a more cohesive AT&T culture among the many AT&T businesses. Sometimes when you move from building to building, the message gets distorted.

I also think there could be improvements to the vacation and time off policy. I think this is because I came from a company that provided four weeks of vacation.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe should invest in creating a more cohesive AT&T culture. If we are going from building to building at different locations, we should still see/hear/feel the same culture.

Fun, rewarding, challenging and ever changing technology

Retail Sales Consultant (Former Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

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

ProsGood management, rewarding. They take care of their employees. Advancement from within.

ConsLong hours in the retail

Advice to Senior Managementstay on top of what makes each individual the best they can be. It's kind of a difficult situation, but each person is an individual, and each person works to their potential in a different way. It's like being a coach, which I have done for 20 plus years, you find how to get the best out of each individual , for what's' best for him/her, which makes it best for the whole team
