    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits. There is some great room for growth within the company, if you are willing to work hard. It has been a great experience for me.

    Cons

    Overall all there are not really any cons. There is a lot of pressure but that is to be expected in such a competitive market

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Some great people thatI worked with in multiple departments.

    Cons

    The job is never secure, they can come tell you that yoyr job title is being wiped out, they close an office, sell a party of the business. It's always scary, now I have to find somewhere else to work and start at the bottom. I thought I was going to retire from there. Very sad indeed.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to keep your good people because ut matters more than a bottom line. Customers will suffer from the lack of knowledge that you run out the door. Loyalty should mean something.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, opportunity for development and growth are there in management. Lots of opportunities and good benefits plus perks for meeting targets.

    Cons

    Favoritism only management gets promoted, higher-ups have favorites at times and many issues with the union. Lots of hours and no work life balance for management.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking at people who have skills with people management rather than just being able to sell. Many opportunities are missed due to favoritism issues

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

    Pros

    Company works well until it does not. I was mislead about when to sign up for health benefits and was unable to get them for over a year even though my manager made numerous attempts to help me but nothing. They also told me that because my name in the pc system was Phil but my actual name was Philip that I was not able to reduce any employee discounts for internet, cable, in store Merch, and cell service. They made me pay full price for over 2 years!!!

    Cons

    They don't care about you unless you lie or cheat to make a sale. If you make them money it's all good but struggle a little bit and they throw you out for going to the bathroom or any little thing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus in customers and not on your bank accounts.

    Pros

    Connected to every business, opens doors and opportunities. Management focused on the BIG picture. Good for someone who is patient about trying to accomplish things.

    Cons

    Functional management, slow to get things done, difficult to get simple things approved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep printing money while trying to balance the need to execute day to day.

    Pros

    It's a job if you have nothing else to go for it will keep food on your table but that's it and don't expect to be home to eat it

    Cons

    You get to watch people make double what you do and do half the work knowing you'll never get that. Everything they do is designed to keep you moving as fast as possible and God forbid you get hurt because that's your fault.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being sheep
