A good place to start off, but hard to stay long term because of benefits and HR problems.

I worked at AT&T

Pros

Flexible working hours and management tried to keep employees after government contracts ended. Company 401K matching contributions were competitive.

Cons

Medical benefits were limited to a consumer drive high deductible plan, or a low quality HMO. Education benefits were limited to certain fields of study. Human resources and benefit information is hard to find among different websites. Too much reliance on technology to address HR needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve employee benefits and make it easy for an employee to be an employee within the company. Too much time is wasted trying to handle employee HR and administrative issues.

    I have been working at AT&T

    Pros

    They are a national company and transfer opportunities are available.

    Cons

    They manage their managers instead of focusing on productivity and accomplishment. Randall Stephenson publicly made the comment that he approves of working from home anytime after five. Managers are already expected to be IN the office 50 hours every week and take work home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The silo mentality of the new AT&T has taken it's toll on employee morale, productivity, and customer service. Open the lines of communication between all employees in all departments. Upper management insisting on the "that's not my job" mentality will eventually take it's toll on the profitability of AT&T. AT&T must learn how to communicate within the ranks.

    Pros

    Due to the fact that this company is union, you are getting decent pay. This is definitely a plus when trying to make a living. The plus is the benefits you get in medical , dental and vision. However, the company is renewing the union contract in April of 2009 and the outcome can be a substantial difference in comparison to the way it is today.

    Cons

    The downside of working for AT& T is the outsourcing this company is doing. You never know if your job will be secure. When the company was Pacific Bell...employees felt a sense of job security. Unfortunately, today it is a completely different story

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have respect for your employees!
