No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great benefits, congenial atmosphere, interesting issues to work on. Benefits are amazing, and you can retire in your early 50s quite nicely if you make a career there. If you get high enough, you can have a great work-life balance, and they encourage civic involvement on company time.

Cons

Advancement is more a matter of having an easygoing personality and avoiding conflict as it iis based on capability. If you point out problems and try to tackle them, you will be seen as a troublemaker. It's good for someone who doesn't want to put too much of themselves into their work.

Advice to Management

Spend your merger bonuses well and enjoy. IIt's a shame we had to be the ones eaten instead of the ones doing the eating, but our failed IPTV strategy and inability to get new products out the door sealed that fate.

    Pros

    The compensation, benefits, work environment, and the ability to work in any depatment in the organization at any location globally. They will train you to do any jobs in the company. The current CEO started as a technician in the field and worked his way up to CEO.

    Cons

    There is no flexibility in scheduling. Bellsouth/Att does not care about you going to school, family, or immediate health. They want you to be at work everyday, with 12 hours of overtime weekly, and work 6 days a week if they can convience you to do so. No matter how valuable you really are, they will fire you or downsize a complete department without hesitation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what employees are saying and try to help employees cope with difficult situations, even if you cannot change the situation. Do not act like every change is always good change.
