I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than a year

Pros

good benefits, free phones and service, union representation (in some states), generous vacation time after a few years, bargained employees have automatic salary increases

Cons

standing up all day, working on a tablet, unrealistic sales quotas most months, they keep hiring kids, heavy amount of problems you have to fix on a day to day basis, working nights and weekends, the only position available to an RSC is the dreaded assistant manager, U-Verse is a nightmare

Advice to ManagementAdvice

quit upping the quota

    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    For the level of work, very good salary and benefits (union negotiated, occupational position). As long as you keep your nose clean there seems to be relatively good job security.

    Cons

    AT&T markets itself to its customers as a cutting edge "outside the box" company but as an employer it seems to have a very old school mindset and rigid work environment. A little history if not known, this company is actually SBC Communications, they actually bought the old AT&T a few years ago and adopted their name. Every long-term employee I've spoken with said AT&T prior to the SBC acquisition was a way more flexible company and generous with its employees. Since the acquisition it seems to be a very different mindset. My first, second, and third level managers are all great and have absolutely no complaints against them, but despite this, the company culture at large seems to lack innovation and flexibility especially when it comes to its occupational employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve flexibility and work/life balance for occupational employees.
