    I worked at AT&T (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    DirecTV was a great place to work until At&t took over. The company treated their employees like they were valued. At&t offered additional employee discounts.

    Cons

    There was no room to grow. If you wanted to stay with the company you had to make lateral job applications or risk being let go due to restructure.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees make a happy business. That's a major reason Directv's

    Rot in hell

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

    Pros

    They're huge at over a quarter million employees. As an employee you get 1st rate benefits and discounts on not only AT&T products but shopping for just about anything from cars to computers to movie night outs.

    Cons

    The HR/Personnel department seems to be overwhelmed at times. They can be slow in resolving problems for employees.

    Advice to Management

    With respect I say consider all the people you put out of work as legacy surplus employees when you take over a new company. Responsibility to the community means keeping jobs for those people living there, not just donations to different causes.

    Pros

    Compensation, benefits, great products and service

    Cons

    Lack of integrity and the corporate culture is hit or miss depending on where you work and what you do for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your area and director level managers there is an influx of alarming behavior and a strong lack of integrity especially in the sales organization.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    -Benefits are competitive, perhaps slightly better than average.
    -Company is trying new things to become relevant to younger workers.
    -Work from home flexibility.
    -They just ditched stacked ranking.
    -Lots of jobs here. If you don't like what you're doing, you can move around.

    Cons

    -Company is heavily silo'd. Your request for anything will take weeks.
    -Teams are not collaborative but are territorial instead. Everything is a threat.
    -Legacy ATT teams aren't innovative. All they think about is protecting turf.
    -Work is slowed down to the bare minimum. No one is thinking about doing anything efficiently since it would be a potential threat.
    -VM requests take 6 months to turn around.
    -Service accounts in Active Directory take a few weeks to process.
    -Management is letting all this madness happen.
    -The best ideas don't make it. What survives are ideas that keep jobs and let's everyone clock their 40.
    -Too many old people here. Something like 100,000 people here are at retirement age right now. Lots of old ideas, old ways of doing things. Gimmie a break.
    -Likes to say they have collaboration zones in many cities but all the great engineering devops jobs are in either Dallas/L.A./New Jersey for some reason. Maybe they like paying higher salaries?
    ...
    -Too many others to list.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the silos. Stop the lazy union style of working. Start collaborating. Start trusting one another. Start realizing that your greatest success lies within the success of others.
