    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It can be a fairly flexible place to work, but the company has been changing and remaking itself. There are lots of opportunities if you can find them.

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucratic nonsense... Lots of mandatory training which is the same thing every year. Lots of shuffling around of the parts of the business. It sometimes seems that the upper management uses changes in the business set up as an excuse

    Advice to Management

    When you acquire new businesses, you really need to consolidate into your core technologies, rather than having to go and enter data into 2 or 3 systems doing the same thing.

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

    Pros

    Large company that is constantly evolving. Great diversity and inclusion program. A leader in telecom. Future direction not clear after acquisition of DirecTV and Time Warner. It looks like it wants to get into advertising and/or content. As far as advertising, it can't compete with Google or Facebook. Content remains to be seen.

    Cons

    Took the tax break from the government and laying off thousands of people. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. Spend hundreds of millions (maybe billions) to put name on sport stadiums. Talk about innovation all the time, yet in reality, there are none. Very fragmented. Internal groups/departments do not play well together.

    Advice to Management

    Break up into smaller companies to gain focus and direction. Pay attention to employees and match up their skills with their job content. Spend less money on putting name on sport stadiums.
