    Pros

    Long history of family and loyalty. Good pay and benefits. A place you could devote your working life to and leave behind a legacy and encourage your kids to work at.

    Cons

    It used to be like the Pros I mentioned. Now it is all politics and what have you done for me today. Loyalty is no longer rewarded. They will show you the door while patting you on the back and telling you how great you are doing.

    Advice to Management

    For the LvL 2 and above. You run your LvL 1 manager's into the ground. They work to many hours and are expected to fix every problem from sales issues to engineering being to far removed from the field. Show some back bone and loyalty to the ppl that break their backs to feed their families. AT&T used to be a place A person was proud to work for. Fear is the only thing abundant there now.

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

    Pros

    I honestly cannot think of any right now. Vacation time was great but you never get to use it.

    Cons

    The manager for our group was really bad. I did not want to leave, he gave me no choice.

    Overworked
    Contributions no recognized
    The public criticism was the WORST
    My manager didn’t care about his team, we were just numbers that could be replaced.

    We were repeatedly told to do unethical things to get our numbers.

    Constant change - really for the worst

    The compensation for the work done was horriable.

    Advice to Management

    The best advice I can give is if you want your best people to stay, you need to think carefully about how you treat them.

    Pros

    Great, pay,hours, benefits. Union job. Very good guys I worked with.

    Cons

    Management is a little too hard nosed on subjects they don’t fully understand, they make company wide standards that are not applicable in all areas.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up and listen to your employees about their concerns. Help them help you. Don’t be so focused on numbers and times but get back to the days where it was about the consumer! Let the techs take care of customers.
