    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 19 years

    Pros

    Mostly good people, overall good benefits, lots of challenging projects that are consumer facing to millions of customers.

    Cons

    Its a large enterprise, so by the senior management level you are definitely treated like a number. Lots of corporate mandatory training that is basically useless time waster. Also in a salaried position you are considered management and have to take classes every few years to cover unionized worker jobs in case of a strike (and potentially have to called up to cover during a strike). Health care coverage benefit was...

    You are not going to attract and maintain senior developer talent by micromanaging burn down rates daily during sprints and forcing people to always work from the office.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits in a union environment. 401K, pensión, healthcare, and generous service discounts

    Cons

    Schedule, if your don’t have tenure expect to work horrible schedules. Also, it’s very easy to get stuck in a position. There aren’t easily available ways to move up. Departments tend to hire within and favoritism is very high.

    Pros

    Great company if you have the right boss

    Cons

    Reorgs every year and you risk getting a boss that's inexperienced and does not care to know their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Reorgs are good for the company, but overdoing it like every six months is just as bad. At some point leadership won't even take the effort to know their employees, what contributions the employee have made in the past before they took the position and knowing if the employee is up for progression or promotion. You begin to wonder if this is the intended effect from upper management or just poor leadership. Ironic...
