    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    AT&T is one of the best emerging technology companies, it is making sure all of it's employees are ready for the future with free courses/training, very good tuition benefits, with 8 weeks of parental leave it simply ROCKS!!!

    Cons

    The only downside is being a merger company it sometimes feels disconnected working on various projects and interacting with teams, tons of documentation and formal procedures for getting the work done, but the leadership is taking steps to get rid of this.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of bureaucracy and tons of formal procedures, increase high visibility on your top performers, top performers are always masked under hundreds of management layers.

    Pros

    Potential of company with proper leadership. Thousands of talented employees.

    Cons

    Middle leadership empire builders. Much of the greatness set forth by senior leadership is ignored or diluted as it makes its way through the L5-L3 managers. Extreme focus on diverse and college programs limits the opportunities for existing leaders regardless of ratings or benefit to the company.

    Advice to Management

    It’s amazing that AT&T is successful, at all. Put some focus on existing employees instead of wasting so much on employees that get promoted too fast to know how to lead. Many leave anyway after using AT&T as a stepping stone. You have many existing employees that aren’t part of an LDP program, but are actually amazing leaders. The problem is that those leaders are held back not given the opportunities given to “silver spoon” program candidates.

    Pros

    Money is good is your able to sell. Good benefits not great, but give or take with most companies. Incentives to promote or move forward.

    Cons

    UNION. It’s near impossible to fire trash employees because of the arduous process that would take close to a year. This leads to people milking the system dry and not contributing and lower team morale. Everything is Seniority based, So NOTHING you do for the company or your position gives you any merit. It’s all about hire date, when it comes to PTO Schedules and certain perks. Also since they cant get rid of the trash employees if your 3 years or less with company expect to be forced moved to other locations for headcount balancing. ALSO the union voted to get rid of Pensions for new employees for a 2k taxed bonus for current employees. (What a win)

    Advice to Management

    It’s understood you do not want to go out of your way to cause issues and risk your own career, however please have to intestinal Fortitude to go through the counseling process of getting rid of trash employees. And stop killing our sales commission.
