Pros

For Young Professionals AT&T is a great place to jumpstart your career. The training program for college hires is hands down one of the most intense in the industry.

Cons

Unable to retain employees specifically college hires because they are underpaid. The salary at AT&T is not at all competitive with the market or industry especially for the Generatin Y-ers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Retain the amazing talent you have invested so much in developing. Streamline everything internally.

    Pros

    Pay is pretty decent for not having to dig ditches.
    Company gets new and innovative products.
    Good benefits (most people stay because of the benefits package).

    Cons

    Get promoted based on who you know.
    Terrible management.
    No real leaders just a bunch of puppets running the show and not using reason or leadership skills to motivate employees.
    The company comp structure changes enough where it is almost impossible to make more money.
    The company is not on the cutting edge of technology or plans (typically follows in Verizons footsteps).
    Reps are forced to sell flawed products such as home phones and services that dont get installed and then written up for not hitting quotas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as assets not liabilities. Anyone can take the easy road and just discipline employees for numbers, how about try to motivate them to reach their goals instead of intimidating and threatening. Very cover your @ss attitude by management where they will do anything to get recognition and do nothing to deserve the recognition.
