    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training curriculum, benefits, and skill development opportunities!

    Cons

    Status Quo is highly discouraged. You've gotta be nimble, willing to implement and embrace change, and comfortable with being stretched beyond your comfort zone.

    Advice to Management

    Support your Employee Resource Groups, offer more mentoring opportunities, be more candid with wages in comparison to the industry. AT&T is highly competitive in pay and benefits; employees may suffer from "the grass is greener" syndrome.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Technology growth and employee development is very extensive. Strong company culture. Spirit of continuous challenge and personal growth. Active transformation in our Fortune 6 company with expansions from traditional communications into data analytics, mobile communications and devices, growth into entertainment with expansions via Time Warner and Latin America via DIRECT acquisition. Excellent 401 (k) match of 80% for the 1st 6% of salary allocated to 401 (k) resulting in 10.8% savings to retirement each year. Great benefits and tuition plans. Recognized as one of Fortune Magazines Best Places to Work. I have been here 31 years and while there have been challenges each and every year I am proud of my company and I have many great friends here.

    Cons

    You have to constantly grow and reinvent yourself to ensure your relevance in our workforce and fully embrace change. This is a challenge, not a negative. I think of the time tested axiom, "change or die".

    Advice to Management

    Always lead by example, not just edict. Always choose integrity over expediency.

    Pros

    AT&T is a huge company so the chance to wear many hats and get into any type of function you may become interested in.

    Cons

    Being such a big company that has grown through acquisition, there is an inconsistent culture across products and locations. There is often little chance to bring truly creative solutions to problems, and the company does not value a "fail fast approach. Rather, it is a "fail never" culture which leads to a very conservative approach to all business manners.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to reexamine its process for promotions. The "Hi Potential" system is nothing more than lip service that a person is performing above the level of their peers.
