I worked at AT&T full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, company benefits and compensation.

Cons

Management poor, processies not monitored or effeciant, and compensation was always changing and wasn't easily understood or communicated the changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slower to hire, quicker to fire. Managers with good numbers aren't always good managers or employees. I'd advise upper management to spend more time "working" in lower positions to gain a better understanding of whats really happening.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Hoffman Estates, IL

    I worked at AT&T as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    High Compensation. Various job opportunities. Large staffing firm benefits program. Positive management and employee value. Flexible working schedules. Fortune 500 Company with several partnering companies for employee enrichment.

    Cons

    Lack of project stability. Short notice for changing or ending projects. Little communication between Temp agency staff members and employees of AT&T and contract and non-contract. Inability to project stability of employment with longevity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each employee should be valued and treated with the same level of respect. Tenure should not be used as a crutch to dismiss unprofessional behavior. Job requirements/specifications should be evaluated and restructured for optimal employee performance. Upper management should leave their offices on a regular basis and go speak with the employees to formulate positive relationships.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary can be good, but only if you negotiate a high starting rate

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't actually exist here. Management talks a good game, but employees are not an asset and no care goes into retaining valuable talent. Wireline runs the entire show, placing non-qualified wireline people into wireless jobs. Outsourcing to India is rapidly taking place throughout the entire organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to actually treat your employees as assets, show them they are valued and reward them with actual raises and promotional opportunity instead of promoting via cronyism. Stop outsourcing actual talent and replacing with the cheapest labor you can get.
