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

Pros

Very stable. Room to grow. Reliable. Real problems to solve. Still one of the best places if you want to work for one company for 20+ years

Cons

Conservative when it comes to tech adoption. Very similar to a government job when it comes to raises/promotions. Doesn't get rid of people easily, so team members are usually not the best and brightest. Beurocratic

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As an employee? Stop caring so much about the shareholders and pay more attention to your employees. As a shareholder? Keep doing what you're doing and don't forget to keep raising that dividend.

It would also be nice to trust employees a bit more and let them fail more often if you want to really go back to being 'innovative'.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Training Course information given prior to begining the job. (Taining does not simulate true working conditions)

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectation of exceeding 105% productivity daily when many variables are out of your control. There is an unwritten culture to fudge your time worked, work through lunches and charge customers excessively for installation or repair services so technicians can make up for lost time and productivity. If you are ethical and work by the book you will find yourself on the fast track to get fired. They will do whatever is takes to get rid of you such as assigning bad or difficult jobs to you, have you excessively audited 2-3 times a week by managers for safety checks and will call you constantly to check your status. Managers will call you out in morning meetings in front of others and treat you with little respect. I have worked for large corporations before and never experienced a hostile work environment such as this one. Very high turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to be respectful to employees, work ethically, be realistic about productivity expectations and treat employees equally. If you do that though, you would never meet your quota.
