    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to pre AT&T purchase leadership values. Reduce pro corporate propaganda. Get a more spirited leader to speak to the employees. Randall is a very smart and successful person, he just doesn't a presence like Ed did or Stankey has now. If you want a more hip corporate culture stop the talking and take action. Half of the company is stuck in 1970's mode the other half is trying to transform the culture by talking about it. Drop the massive hierarchy and flatten out.

    Pros

    Generally stable company. It's a big name to have on your resume. Provides experience working with very large projects. Management opportunities appear to be abundant. Pay is generous.

    Cons

    IT work is frequently pushed offshore with little regard to quality, creating long-term maintenance difficulties. Immediate tactical cost savings are valued much more than long-term strategic planning. Career advancement is laughable - promotions/progressions are constantly put "on hold" indefinitely. Non-performers are coddled instead of cut. Forced ranking rating system punishes high performing teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Throw away the red tape. Embrace Agile software development. Treat employees with respect, rewarding those who excel.
