    I worked at BellSouth full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits and overtime if you need it.

    Cons

    Pay is not consistent with the work you do compared to other departments. Unwilling to hire more workers for fill work load, putting all tech on overtime all the time. Constantly taking away your days off, sometime taking them the night before. You are only as good as your last job.

    BellSouth was taken over by AT&T in 2007 and respect for the company was lost. Regain that respect.

    I worked at BellSouth

    Pros

    The job has decent pay, good benefits, and opportunity for overtime. Most of the time you are allowed to run your job.

    Cons

    Criteria relating to job performance is driven by folks that know little about the job itself, based on need for numbers, not need for customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real real numers to work with while evaluating employees; there needs to be a committment to the devewlopment and training of the employees.

    Some deadwood employees... but most OK

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope Duane Ackerman is enjoying the new island he purchased with part of his $$ multi-million golden parachute. Thanks Duane for helping turn the telcom industry into a near monopoly via heavy consolidation/mergers and blowing up thousands of jobs for real people.
