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

Pros

I worked for AT&T for 5 Years. They are a wonderful company with excellent benefits. I worked in customer service and sales. I can say this was one of the funnest jobs that I have ever had. There is always continual training and forward movement.

Cons

Competitive enviornment and you must meet sales goals, even in a down economy. I didn't have trouble, but have seen co-workers struggling. The managers sometimes set goals too high. Also, favortism/nepotism is greatly present.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Apply strict rules for favortism and nepotism!

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for sure. People respect your boundaries. Scalability and the concept of one are very important. They have done amazing work, and there are very talented people here.

    Cons

    personal politics can get in the way, but if you are good at that game, you will go far. It can take forever to gt anything unusual done. You have to sit through lots of meetings/conference calls. No perks at the office, this aint no start up. Industry is changing, profits are shrinking.

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

    Pros

    Amazing compensation compared to any part-time job
    Amazing people
    Amazing benefits
    Management is willing to coach and help
    If part-time they will work with school schedule.

    Cons

    High goals <-- its a con depending on how you think but since most of my co-workers complain about it I will put it in the con.
    Depending on location it can be a cake-walk or very difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management can be harsh to the management in the store, but please don't show the stress and vent on the employees. Fight for the sales team and the sales team will support the management.
