    I have been working at AT&T as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Each day starts with its own set of challenges and no two days are the same. This job is challenging, yet rewarding at the same time. Communication among all the teams and groups involved are crucial. Luckily, my co-workers are on par with their own roles and responsibilities.

    For me, the hardest part of the job is drawing the line on how far I should get involved. In my desire to be a team player, sometimes I over-extend myself in other areas than I should or have time for.

    One of the best parts of this job is meeting goals after another. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing a project through.

    Cons

    The definition of job-security in working for AT&T has changed over the years. It seems that the company is always doing corporate restructuring annually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some great talents are there. I understand the idea of bottom dollar, but at the end of the day, I wish they would really recognize and appreciate the loyalty and dedication of the people that help put them where they are.

    Former Employee - Tier II Tech Support in San Ramon, CA

    I worked at AT&T full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great. Depending on seniority, up to three weeks off in the department I worked in. 24x7 call center, so a lot of shifts available outside of 8AM-5 if that doesn't work.

    Cons

    You can always find things to complain about in any company you work for. But overall, having been there eight years, there really isn't anything truly egregious to speak of. Some people are difficult, some are cool, some in between . . .such is life.
