    I worked at AT&T as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I made many professional contacts in the field and gained knowledge of the industry.

    Cons

    I never saw my "layoff" coming. I was told I had until sometime in 2014 and I was laid off in 2013.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are cutting too many good employees. And, I'm not sure your early retirement idea is going to benefit the company.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    AT&T compensates very well. They are a large company so you get the benefit for working for a well known brand, which looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    Heavy handed management, and ever-changing sales goals (over the past 4 months my goals have been raised 5 times. They raise goals in the MIDDLE of a month - after you already had set what you were going to be selling for that month, making it a mad scramble to try to hit goal). Sales goals are increasing while traffic is decreasing, making it so that people who used to be able to get over $2,000 in commission checks are lucky to get $600 now. A co-worker had her entire commission check set to $0.00 for the month of October... commission for October gets paid in December. This poor woman had no way to buy Christmas presents for her children this year. In addition - due to restructuring in recent months hundreds of people have lost their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as more than just cattle that are selling for you. Don't raise goals in the MIDDLE of a month.
