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

    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.

    Pros

    The company invests in new technologies, invests in a lot of internal training and are always looking for ways to remain competitive. The company strives to do the right thing in many areas

    Large company so nothing happens fast. Top Heavy. You're definitely a number.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to reward employees who push to do better. Don't put everyone in the same skill bucket. Some people do deserve to get paid more. I know HR ties your hands.
