Time with AT&T was good. Hectic pace, but so are most IT positions for major corporations.

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

Pros

Good work experiences. Good benefits, though they have degraded over the last decade.

Cons

When I first began working for AT&T, the CEO was Ed Whitacre. Ed came up through the ranks of the company to become CEO. He appreciated his workforce and people worked hard for him. Morale was good.
However, when Ed retired, Randall Stephenson took over as CEO. Randall is a business major and runs the company as such. People mean little to him. Getting an extra nickel for the stock holders is more important. With this goal in mind, every month hundreds of AT&T jobs are off-shored.
Don't count on AT&T to appreciate you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Randall and company: when you expand into other countries, hire workers from that country to perform work there. When there is work to be done in this country, keep American workers. It's one thing to hire abroad when there isn't a good supply of trained workers at home, but entirely another to off-shore at the expense of American families. Stop off-shoring American jobs.

    Pros

    Global presence provides diversity of people and products, making it an interesting place to work. Compensation and benefits are at or above industry average. Strong equal employment opportunities.

    Cons

    The inertia of large corporations sometimes inhibits the change necessary to remain competitive in today's world, along with restricting appropriately rapid promotions and ease of transition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some less than valuable or prudent policies are implemented and enforced, wasting time and resources because an occasional myopic executive will exert power rather than heed advice.
