    Former Employee - Senior Software Architect in Austin, TX

    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits, occasionally useful discounts, relaxed dress code, short work hours.

    Cons

    Incompetent, weak minded, risk averse, contract+offshore management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The inability for many employees to innovate due to risk averse management makes for a stale environment for innovation; which is coffin nails to long term success. TERRIBLE customer service across the board, with no corporate interest in truly addressing it. STOP offshoring EVERYTHING.

    Current Employee - Area Manager in Bothell, WA

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, ability to work from home occasionally, relative stability in tough economic times

    Cons

    Terrible health benefits, salaries are intentionally below market value, teams/orgs have competing interests, no perks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify org structure, care about employees half as much as you care about profit, remove red tape to allow employees to be effective.

    Neutral Outlook
