I have been working at AT&T

Pros

Security, stability, reasonable pay, decent benefits

Cons

Phone-company outlook, slow-moving, rule-bound, cookie-cutter approach to decisions and management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Predictable, efficient execution is indeed all that matters - until someone changes the game. Will you see it when it happens?

    I have been working at AT&T

    Pros

    benefits and pay , job security once upon a time

    Cons

    watching management make decisions when they don't know what half of us do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    let 1st and 2nd level managers make a decision ,they know their area and employees better than someone 6 states away.Also care about customer service all the time not just when it's convenient or cost effective

    Could improve - prospects depend on outcome of current re-orgs, layoffs and assimilation of merged companies

    I have been working at AT&T

    Pros

    security, variety of jobs to move around to, geographic flexibility if you need to relocate, new growth areas - iptv and wireless

    Cons

    hard to make changes - big company, slow to react, quality of employees - mixed bag, some people are incompetent or not provided adequate training, top down - middle/lower management has no authority

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give middle management more decision making power - hire people you trust then trust them to make decisions - e.g. hiring decisions need not be approved by a VP - that's unnecessary, ridiculous that travel authorization has to be approved so high up, budget decisions, organization of middle management teams should be left to middle managers to decide

    when you make employee cuts, do it at once - don't announce downsizing for the next year - makes employees nervous
