    I worked at AT&T as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    As a contractor to AT&T for over 15 years, it was a very satisfying job in a very supportive environment. There was a balance between work, community and family that allowed for me to work remotely and still remain part of the team.

    Cons

    Currently (2017) Upper level management is more concerned with cost cutting than adding value. I believe they will lose top performers due to extreme resource cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful cutting resources and re-organizing the business too frequently. This leads to low employee morale and the loss of valuable team members.


  2. "Good Company except forced relocation"

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere was professional and the work environment was great. Despite the size of the company the people were friendly and down to earth.

    Cons

    The biggest downsides were the lack of cohesiveness between the various business segments, the red-tape to get things done and the decision to force all manager level employees and above to relocate to TX.

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion the decision to force employees to relocate toTX was a major mistake resulting in a severe drainage of talent from the organization.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Access to senior leadership at AT&T Mobility.

    Cons

    Wireline is not the future of this company. NBM "Silver" is not a place to launch a successful career within AT&T Mobility.

    "With a 90% turnover rate in the first year of employment, the job is a grind."

    Pros

    Because of the Union they provide Excellent Benefits, They give you a Set Schedule, They offer Good pay with a chance to earn more through commissions.

    Cons

    The work environment is a Cutthroat atmosphere, After the sale the salesperson is almost encouraged to give poor customer service

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management always promotes the best salesperson to be a manager, but their skills as a manager are not as good as they are for selling.
