    I worked at AT&T (Less than a year)

    Pros

    No matter what position you work in you will gain valuable work experience. The company had a fantastic training program.

    Cons

    It’s not for some. It’s very metrics driven. Opportunity for advancement within HR is difficult unless you live in one of the major corporate locations (Atlanta & Dallas).

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. Some leaders managed better than others; overall they are great.

    Pros

    Stable, although limited, earnings environment. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move in the company in recent years as one needs to "releasable" by their current management, who won't let good "workers" leave. At the same the company can move you into something totally unrelated to your career path. Within a 10 year career plan here, you need to be willing at some point to work a position for 2+ years that you don't really want to do with hopes of moving back into your path at a later date. The trade of is a stable paycheck and good benefits.
    Pay can be low compared to other opportunities at other companies, but benefits are good.

    Advice to Management

    None. They know how to run a company of this scale. The company is too big for them to care about an individual, so don't expect them to.

    keep up the good work

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    AT&T was really a great company to work for. I truly enjoyed the experience and the work life balance was very good.

    Cons

    There was a surplus every year I was there. I made it through the first five but my name was called on the sixth year.

    Advice to Management

    Make long term decisions instead of short term ones. The constant change in policy and leadership leads to surplus for all facets of the company.
