NEPOTIST HIRING PRACTICES.

Former Employee - Software Engineer in Redmond, WA

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

Pros

Casual mentality. People like to dress up. Family oriented in a big way. Nice locations. If you're Indian, you'll fit in just fine. Diversity seems to flourish here. The workload is well thought out. Most managers are very nice and easy to get along with.

Cons

No flex time. Strict break and lunch times are ridiculous. No cafeteria. Temporary Agencies kind of ruin everything. Nepotism is very high at this Corporation. Hiring is based on how your relatives are within the company, regardless of experience. I've seen a school teacher hired for Software engineering and was trained to do her job, and even though she was slow and terrible at it, they kept her on, because her husband was a Project manager. They cram 12 people into an office created for 2.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire based on skills not on your personal preferences.
Stop the nepotism.
Flex time.
Cafeteria.
Stop cramming a bunch of people into tiny rooms, so ridiculous.
