    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities here. Usually have competent managers in place, making good decisions. If you network within the company, it's possible to move around to get the kind of position/experience you want

    Cons

    It's a huge company, so expect some friction. Still, things work pretty smoothly for such a large ship, though. Also, sometimes it's possible to get overworked on certain projects. Eventually you get some relief -- it just takes a while at times.

    Advice to Management

    The company seems genuinely to care about employees. This is a great policy. Keep at it, even if it seems expensive and time consuming sometimes. It matters.

    Pros

    Working at AT&T is like playing for the New England Patriots, golden state Warriors, or Alabama Crimson Tide. You'll work with talented, motivated, driven peers on game changing products with the latest technology. You get to sharpen your skills collaborating with peers and have access to top flight continuing education through T University. You'll have the opportunity to compete and win at the highest levels (both internally and externally).

    Cons

    This is the big leagues, so the bar is set really high to stand out and get ahead. As one of my mentors was fond of saying "I know that you are qualified to take on this next opportunity, but you need to answer are you Competitive?" AT&T has a wealth of opportunity and lots of qualified employees seeking those next opportunities. You have to keep working, keep getting better, as you strive to win that starting position. You also have to keep supporting your peers and working together to win as a team -- even if you're spending time in a supporting role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the organization flat, compensation equitable from top to bottom, and keep giving us employees that chance to work on meaningful work that matters.

    Pros

    A good place for longevity and pay and benefits are pretty good. Employees are covered by an union. Retirement benefits are cool.

    Cons

    The benefits use to be bar none and only a few other companies could compete. Many people have had long careers in the past.

    Upper management has no clue on what the linemen do. This company is run by bean counters. Constantly worried about being surplused.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees the truth about their employment.

    Pros

    Wages, benefits, training, a Job Direct discount

    Cons

    Directorso talk so negative to there employees and support group. They expect you to be super human while they sit around and play work. And I mean play work! Horrible collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Take diversity training. I can not understand how this company rank high in diversity when when the workforce is lopsided with internationals.

    Pros

    Pay is really good compared to other companies with same skills. The benefits are good too. The 401k offers a real good match

    Cons

    It is really hard to move around in the company if you are an outside technician. Should have programs set up for advancements.
