    I worked at AT&T full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company name has a lot of weight for recognition and brand. Company is largest and competitive.

    Cons

    Was told by executives that doing business in California is too costly. As a result, there has been very little incentive to promote employees in this location. Advancement is very difficult and if any these are title changes with more responsibilities but no pay increase. Moral is totally low. Young talent is not there; therefore innovation is not there. Most managers are not supportive or encourage, promote, mentor or sponsor. Lack in manager training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employee inputs , embrace legacy Pac Bell guidelines to empower and respect employees.
