    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to you employees. Listen to their needs and they will pass this on to the customer. They are after all, the reason you exist. No one is immune to failure, not even AT&T. Be kind and do the right thing and good things will come your way.

    Pros

    There people who work at ATT are what make it a great place to work.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Highly Diverse, excellent opportunities for individual contributors, good benefits.

    Cons

    Big company politics, internal corporate culture clashes, too many subcultures based on acquired companies, "us versus them" and "in or out" internal politics and factions based on DirecTV pedigree versus AT&T HQ versus smaller acquired companies. Politics impact technical decisions negatively. Company business focus is so broad that they miss innovative and strategic opportunities in international markets and with startup companies.

    Advice to Management

    1: Get a realistic Build versus Buy or Partner process to avoid business and technical decisions adversely swayed by politics. 2: Either support international business or kill it. Don't starve it or shrink it by a thousand cuts.
