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?

    Not the employee-focused Communications company of old, like Pacific Bell.

    Pros

    Stable company with forward thinking on future technology & handles money extremely well. Probably a good stepping stone to other corporations. Good benefits (but you have to pay more as a manager)

    Cons

    Constant downsizing; doesn't truly care about employees; reorganizations are planned with little input from lower management - when lower management doesn't agree, their input is ignored. California employees are treated like second class employees because of California's worker friendly laws. If a vacancy happens in California, it's backfilled in another state. Very cheap leadership - many employees pay for their own cell phones, office supplies, head sets. And there are still 24 private jet pilots on the payroll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve your lower management leaders in more key decisions. Listen to them - they're the one's who have to make your plans work.
