    Pros

    Worked with some good people. AT&T's product portfolio is very hard to beat. Benefits and pay are pretty good - they try to involve lots of incentive programs to keep turnover low.

    Cons

    Decisions made by upper management are slightly forced - lots of politics in management. The processes in this company are disorganized, lengthy, and constantly changing, which not only hurts the employees but hurts the customers as well. Although the pay is above average for most jobs, the sales comp is paid out in a way that no one can understand.

    Advice to Management

    Stop caring only about your own objectives (quota), and consider your employee's happiness and the effects all decisions have on customers.

    Pros

    Has presense everywhere and it offers oportunity for advancement in many areas if you find yourself in the right place at the right time

    Cons

    Too much hidden discrimination. There are those of the old school that are still in power and block capable people for promotions in favor of Alma Matter buddies and such butts. They also implement disincentives to get rid of experienced people that can contribute with their knowledge in favor of young inexperience agressive employees that have no loyalties to anyone

    Advice to Management

    Stop the bleeding of experienced people and place them where they contribute the most. Young graduates are assets for the future, but they will leave you in an instant's notice if they see how you treat your experienced people
