    Pros

    Highly Diverse, excellent opportunities for individual contributors, good benefits.

    Cons

    Big company politics, internal corporate culture clashes, too many subcultures based on acquired companies, "us versus them" and "in or out" internal politics and factions based on DirecTV pedigree versus AT&T HQ versus smaller acquired companies. Politics impact technical decisions negatively. Company business focus is so broad that they miss innovative and strategic opportunities in international markets and with startup companies.

    Advice to Management

    1: Get a realistic Build versus Buy or Partner process to avoid business and technical decisions adversely swayed by politics. 2: Either support international business or kill it. Don't starve it or shrink it by a thousand cuts.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    None whatsoever. I can't even fill the 20 word minimum because that's how difficult it is to come up with pros for this company.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, low pay, treated like a number, no advancement opportunities, asked to perform tasks that are not part of your role, pushed beyond your limit to the point of loss of emotional well-being, exhaustion, subjected to inhumane and dangerous working conditions...just to name a few things...

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to actually coach and develop your employees instead of just punishing them for underperforming due to your shortfalls as leaders.

    Pros

    Flexibility with work hours. Good benefits. When this company makes a move, it's always a big move. There are lots of opportunities within the company itself to move about in different directions. There's the wireline, mobility, DirecTV, uverse, entertainment group, marketing, sales, etc. Lots of different areas but all within the company. Working here is a lot like understanding the value of not rushing into things before making a good decision. You won't have the glamour of someplace cool and innovative. But instead it's a slow and steady growth, inasmuch that you get what you put into your work. Company is undergoing a transformation of it's workforce (200k people) by bringing the skills needed for the technology-driven future.

    Cons

    Very stressful. Staff movement happens too often.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to invest in. Modernizing it's far reaching infrastructure.

    Pros

    full Time, Pay, Ability to move around

    Cons

    Everything, this company has so many dirty secrets, how many of you knew they had a single layoff in late 2017 with nearly 300 people? The Mangers lie constantly, the company is internally repressive. Pretty much every bad thing you can imagine happens at AT&T. Do not get a job in Engineering or Construction.

    They are fake as hell stay away

    Advice to Management

    Stop Lying and do your jobs for once

    Pros

    Great company with lots of benefits and free learning courses with ATT University

    Cons

    ATT has layoffs every year so all employees worry about their job stability every year. It’s contradictory to ATT message of being a corporate citizen and their philosophy of family work environment. Don’t expect long term employment. Pls google ATT class action lawsuit and ATT surplus to preview what you will expect from them.

    Advice to Management

    ATT preaches great work environment and stability however practices age discrimination and no long term career stability for employees.
