Great company to work for, as long as you are working under a supportive boss.

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

Pros

Competitive pay, advancement opportunity, flexibility on where you work, lots of different jobs within the company.

Cons

The upper management in the Charlotte area put a lot on their individual store managers and do not inspire and engage their workers. The hours are retail so they are not very flexible. Ultimately it all depends on who you work for within the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time showing your managers how you want things done as opposed to just telling them and expecting them to figure it out. Communicate instead of just ordering. You will get much better results. Also if you need to coach someone, do so in a respectful, private manner, not in front of their peers.

    Great stepping stone

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

    Pros

    A great company to work for in order to hone your sales talent. You have to familiarize yourself with a variety of products and will learn how to pitch and market them to an extremely broad customer base. Decent pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    Management is very weak. People tend to be promoted for the tenure and not their talent. In the most recent years, employees have become merely a replaceable number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've seen some great talent leave through the doors because of the lack of recognition and compensation.

  2.  

    Good compensation and benefits but too much attention to metrics

    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    AT&T is a provider of very powerful technology. The ability to communicate with anyone, anywhere, at any time provides the basis of a service that requires very competent employees.

    Cons

    There is too much emphasis on metrics to the point that it interferes with performance of actual service provisioning duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give workers the freedom to do the job they were trained to do.
