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

    Pros

    Company strives for high standard in leadership. Expectations at each level extremely high. If you make it as a Director here, it means that your scope and span of work is huge. A director here can have as much challenge and responsibility as VPs or SVPs in other companies. Same for higher levels. Att is really a lean company for senior management and has few leadership opportunities.

    Cons

    The culture is so old fashioned, they are trying their best, but it is hard to move a company with hundreds of years in existence. There are a lot of Christians who happen to be leaders in the company and tell others their religion views and conservative notions. Beware. if you happen to be progressive or liberal. Promotions are hard to come by and they pay so little!!!. I know because I worked in HR and know how they compare with other companies. Very inflexible, change takes a long time. And for all the development stuff that they have, I wasn't impressed with their talent level. because talented people will leave a cheap and boring company.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want change and innovation, you should be open to other ways of doing things, please don't make the same mistakes you did with DIRECTVs acquisition with Time Warner. Your inflexible and cost leadership way of doing things will not translate well in the entertainment business.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong company ethics. Excellent health benefits and 401 K. Opportunities are provided and in some cases one is able telecommute as needed.

    Cons

    Upsizing followed by downsizing and vice versa. Collaboration is key but due to Company size it still remains somewhat bureaucratic.

    WV is a small part of the corporate ladder. Unless ur willing to relocate, growth in that area is minimal

    Offer more opportunity in non corporate hubs.

    Pros

    Benefits and Pay. Onsite amenities and facility.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and management culture

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting long-timers simply because they have been at the company. The world is changing quickly and the younger employees are the solution to your future. Not the ones waiting for retirement.

    Pros

    from the CEO to the SVP, they all were all in on diversity and talking about transforming from being tolerable to understanding.. it made you feel so proud to work for this company

    Cons

    limited to 3,000 employees from all over the US. Held in Dallas. Workshops ran out of space quickly

    Advice to Management

    Open it up to more people. Allow after party to bring a spouse.
