    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.

    Pros

    The compensation, benefits, work environment, and the ability to work in any depatment in the organization at any location globally. They will train you to do any jobs in the company. The current CEO started as a technician in the field and worked his way up to CEO.

    Cons

    There is no flexibility in scheduling. Bellsouth/Att does not care about you going to school, family, or immediate health. They want you to be at work everyday, with 12 hours of overtime weekly, and work 6 days a week if they can convience you to do so. No matter how valuable you really are, they will fire you or downsize a complete department without hesitation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what employees are saying and try to help employees cope with difficult situations, even if you cannot change the situation. Do not act like every change is always good change.
