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

    Pros

    Friendly environment, great colleagues, unbelievable wealth of information at your fingertips, prominent brand, above average compensation when everything is considered

    Cons

    Very SSSSSLLLLLOOOOOWW to change, extra bureaucratic (think 300K+ employees), very slim opportunity for growth, decisions made in stratosphere with tons of (unnecessary) management layer between the decision makers and the actual do'ers

    Advice to Management

    Have some guts and cut down the org chart. you have too many middle management layers filled with dinosaurs who add ZERO to the productivity of the company.
    Also, Dallas is NOT the center of the universe. You are losing big on talent and dynamic buy chasing real estate and municipality tax benefits and forcing the world to come to Dallas. forget the SBC mentality, it is a new era already!
