    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company provided device.
    Discount on wireless and TV services.
    Opportunity to learn new technologies.
    Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Integrated Solutions Consultant is described as providing a White Glove Experience to customers for a great customer experience, but is really only a glorified door-to-door sales position.

    Vacations can be canceled last minute due to your leadership not planning ahead and letting employees carry balances to the end of the vacation calendar year.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees, not just the bottom line.


  4. "Not an inspiring place to work"

    Former Contractor - Lease Administrator in Tualatin, OR

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

    Pros

    Discounts on phone services; get information first-hand about the latest technology; the people were great, for the most part.

    Cons

    Big company only interested in the money. No real concern for the people making it possible for them to make that money.

    Advice to Management

    It's not just about the biggest players in the company.

    Pros

    The pay is not bad

    Cons

    A big company but with a small company feel due to the small size of retail stores. Depending on your manager, it can be wonderful or horrible. Managers move around a ton, so even if you get a nice one, they will probably be moved.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency for employees, value the parents instead of making them feel terrible for needing time off to see a school play.

    Pros

    Good pay, union benefits, good hours if there many years, good vacation allotment and schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    Only good hours if you have been with the company for many years, poor management at certain locations and poor disciplinary action at certain locations.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees who have worked hard and have been with the company many years better than people who have not contributed much over multiple years.

    Pros

    Good pay, (PNW excluded) good people. Internal systems and resources above competition

    Poor management benefits. Company is losing some of the best people they have due to internal politics and a culture of focusing on appearances in lieu of actual results.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce attrition by valuing more that one personality type.
