Solid place to work until AT&T fired most in corporate positions

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at BellSouth full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBig budget projects
Respected employees
Treated employees well
Job security (until AT&T)
Interesting industry (telcom, internet, wireless, TV)

ConsHighly conservative "corporate" culture
Some systems were antiquated
Some procedures were nonsense
Some deadwood employees... but most OK

Advice to Senior ManagementHope 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.
