As a former employee and returning as a consultant, it seems like the company is more scattered since the late 90's.

I worked at AT&T as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

- Fairly easy-going management
- Flexible work arrangement
- Work remotely a few days a week or in inclement weather

Cons

- Projects are too nebulous - no clear direction
- Can take awhile before someone will even acknowledge that something needs to be done

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend a little more time getting to know what people are working on and provide your ideas up front instead of letting them go off for awhile thinking they're doing the right thing and THEN telling them what you had in mind

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

    Pros

    Excellent Salary. Telecommuting available for some positions. Opportunities for career growth.

    Cons

    Too many re-organizations. Too many layoffs. Too many positions offshored and outsourced. Management is selected and expected to perform work of Vocational employees when they go on strike. Management and the Vocational position do not necessarily have to be in the same department or city. Strike duty sometimes last weeks if not months. This obligation can be very challenging for a family especially when the vocational position is in a different city.
