    Pros

    Great compensation, training, growth opportunity

    Cons

    No work/life balance, occasionally stressful

    Advice to Management

    The balance and sense of family at the corporate leadership level vanished with Paul Roth. You need compassionate officer leadership to drive the growth and activities needed to succeed. It largely doesn't exist today....

    I worked at AT&T as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a worldwide company offering a vast area of experiences by association with the various branches within the company. Their large product offerings provide learning and exposure allowing one to expand personal product knowledge.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large and complex it is difficult to learn all aspects and rules that must be followed in order to reach across the various subsidiaries of the company effetely. While it is all one company the operation rules are vastly different in different locations around the country.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication among the various segments of the company and attempt to have decisions made at lower levels of management.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility with home/life balance, autonomy to make own decisions and think outside of the box, built great partnerships and friendships along the years

    Cons

    Reorganizations! Go through 3-4 every year where employees are let go. Job security is very shaky.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good to a degree. There have been so many reorganizations that the knowledge, skill sets, and customer focus are being lost. Keep the talent you have and don't change just for the sake of change.

    Pros

    Ability to seek out new job experiences and interact with global resources bringing innovation to meet customer expectations.

    Cons

    Larger than industry organizations and spans of control require more communication and people skills across a diverse work force.

    Advice to Management

    Driving to a metric often comes in at the norm vs excelling given compensation model (generous) but not aimed at rewarding total team but only 10% of it.

    Pros

    Predictable, newly remodeled offices in Redmond

    Cons

    No real amenities, limited job opportunities and LOTS of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Very tough environment in Redmond, WA if you are looking to advance your career. Not a lot of local opportunities and company is just as bureaucratic as you might think of a company this size.
