    I have been working at AT&T full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Money. The company pays double what an average customer service representative generally makes in this industry. Benefits are ok, used to be free, monthly premiums keep going up every year.

    Cons

    AT&T used to be a company to be proud to work for. Honestly, these days I am ashamed to say I work for them. In the past 3-4 years the company's greed has taken over completely. We were told a few years ago that the company was going to bring outsourced jobs back to the US. They did, however they are now "insourcing" those job to low wage,vendor companies like USA 800 for example. Also dosent help that they hold us to ridiculous out of reach sales goals, while we spend most days for 8+ hours fixing messes that these vendors and strictly commissioned service reps have created and calming down customers that have been lied to repeatedly and promised things that simply do not exist. And we are expected to sell these people more products and make sure that they are very satisfied at the end of the call. I once received a ry dissatisfied survey from a customer who had problems from the month before with a man who had lied to her and promised her things that were just not true. She was upset, gave me a negative rating on the survey 24hours later and even left a 5 minute long rant about the man she spoke to the previous month. My manager listened to the call and said id don't nothing wrong, but I should have tried to offer her a cell phone and maybe some Uverse. I was still held accountable for the negative survey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourselves in your employees shoes. Intimitdation and scare tactics that you may lose your job if you don't meet their ridiculous sales goals do not work. It only creates low morale. Quit hiring from the bottom of the barrel and stop shoving products down your customers throats. They already know about them and it does nothing but tick them off.

    Pros

    Work with new and up to date technology while getting training (most of it online). The ability to move any where in the country due to all of the offices the company has. Work from home if your manager allows it.

    Cons

    Too many people who drag their feet to accomplish work. Company uses ranking system which doesn't inspire individual to go above and beyond. Lots of red tape (forms and documents for everything!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to focus on inspiring their employees to reach for the stars.
