    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay, 401k, Opportunity to learn and grow, culture, diversity

    Cons

    Constant layoffs or forced retirements resulting in teams working lots of overtime and or not completing projects or just basis IT development on time or in budget or not at all in some cases

    Advice to Management

    Good managers overall but do not put pressure on teams to produce once you get rid of the people with most of the experience and institutional knowledge. All that does is cause employees to look for other opportunities, even at a pay cut.
