Pros

Great benefits package

Large company with options to grow if you play your cards right

Cons

-No work/life balance
-Carroted to work harder and produce more in efforts for promotions that rarely happen
-100% politics, who you know, who likes you and who doesn't
-Expect to work all holidays
-2 months advanced notice for a day off or vacation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn your employees and move them to appropriate channels within. Listen to their future goals and network them to the appropriate people. Don't trap employees into their same role for your benefit. Some managers tried, but were not allowed to be successful because of the big guy upstairs.

    I worked at AT&T

    Pros

    Large company with good health, vacation, and 401k

    Lots of opportunities to work with a variety of teams and products

    So many layers of management that if you get on the right team you might feel like you are working for a small company

    Cons

    So many layers of management that if you get on the wrong team it will feel like you are working for a large company

    Ridiculous holiday schedule - work day after Thanksgiving, Christmas, 4th of July (even if on a Friday), etc

    Not very innovative and customer focused

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit relying on your reputation as a fortune 50 company and innovate to create more opportunities for employees

    I have been working at AT&T full-time

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and you have the opportunity to earn a lot of money. Also, AT&T invests a lot into training and developing employees.

    Cons

    Ridiculous quotas that increase at a whim........makes you feel like your doing more work for less money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The quotas need to be more realistic

    No opinion of CEO
