    Current Employee - Retail Sales Manager in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Retail Sales Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working for one of the most respected companies in the world. Stable job in a poor economy. Extensive benefits including medical, tuition reimbursement, discounts at various retailers and companies, 401k, pension, etc. Above average salary, especially for those without a formal education.

    Cons

    No respect for the work life balance whatsoever. The moment you sign on you are expected to be available 24/7. Days off, vacation, before scheduled shift or after, you are expected to be available. Salary sounds attractive when based on a 40 hour work week; reality is SCHEDULED 55+ and work usually takes you beyond that. Currently to have any chance at advancement you need to be a graduate of the Retail Leadership Development Program. If you are, you can expect to be promoted to Area Manager within 2 years of being with the company. If you are not you can expect to be with the company for 14 years and get passed up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New blood is nice, but there is no substitute for experience. A happy employee is a productive employee. Adding to the work load, asking for more and more yet giving back less and less will not get you results.
