Pros

Good compensation, exciting work opportunity

Cons

Limited growth potentials within AT&T Labs. Lack of proper identity of some groups and there seems to be significant duplication of work effort between groups

Advice to Management

Have a better process for people to grow within AT&T Labs. Currently the groups are very segregated and there is not a whole lot of movement between groups which hampers career growth for the more ambitious minded employees

    Pros

    I was an engineer with SBNI, a DE, an SE, and an Area Manager.at SBC DataComm and then SBC bought AT&T. The only good thing that happened after that was U-Verse as a service offering. The company and the management all stalled after that. Ed saw the writing on the wall and got out with a GOLDEN Parachute. The res

    Cons

    Management spends more time on change than they ever do at executing any plan or program. Yes you need to be ready for change, you need to be able to change, but AT&T goes out of their way to make change happen as an excuse for not be able to execute because they cannot adapt to conditions due to the fact they are too big. You can't turn an aircraft carrier around on a small pond.

    Advice to Management

    Give managers the tools and ability to do whats right for their customers. Stop jumping into businesses and saying "We offer that too". Do it better, or get out of that market and do what you do best. E.g., cloud services, security services, And dare I ask, Could you have screwed up VoIP and SIP business offerings any worse. I actually go out of my way not to do business with you because I am to embarrassed to have to tell my old colleagues "I'm Sorry" and hear them whine and ask where my loyalty is. You guys need to do better, especially if you want to overcharge me constantly and screw up billing.
