    Not worth the time

    I worked at AT&T

    Pros

    The pay is pretty decent compared to the cost of living, and my job feels extremely secure during trying times.

    Cons

    No free coffee at work; this is such a minor expense to keep your employees and guests comfortable.

    For a telecommunications company, this a company that is very slow to change for the better; this includes a change in internal processes or company software upgrades. The company is also extremely large, so it is dizzying to find the right person to assist you; you're lucky to get ANYTHING done while working here.

    The employ many contractors, and don't always hire them after the contract is over. I've seen them let go of contractors with an immense amount of knowledge...what a waste of time and money!

    The constant gossip, bickering, and drama across organizations are extremely immature and reminiscent of high school. It's ridiculous hearing the stories and complaints I hear everyday, and some of the culprits are the mid-level managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the cons I listed are very demoralizing to your employees. Please work towards a POSITIVE work environment, and do not breed the back-stabbing, negative environment we currently have.
