    Pros

    The benefits are extremely hard to leave

    Cons

    There’s no framework or structure path for advancement and promotion

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to recognize employees more often and understand the “Do more with Less” methodology is not a solution and should be discarded, it brings employee moral way down and increases stress levels . The majority of At&t employees are stressed out.

    Pros

    Decent benefits if you were healthy and did not have to take medication

    Cons

    Can't afford medication needed to stay alive.
    No job security.
    If you did not live in Redmond, WA., Chicago, IL., Atlanta, GA., or Dallas, TX. always worrying about being surplus.
    Just a number to management.
    Gave 17 years to company and was thrown out like trash.
    No room for advancement unless you are in the good ole boys network from the wireline side.
    Managers don't fight for their employees.
    Moving jobs oversees, telling government you are adding jobs in America.

    Advice to Management

    Get some people who actually care about employees and not just the bottom line.
