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

    Pros

    Salary is good for some. Benefits are good for managers. But both are getting. Worse and worse each year. (Lower raises, more expense for benefits)

    Cons

    They do layoffs every year; leaving more work on fewer and fewer people. The work environment everywhere is toxic.

    I used to love working for this company. Now it’s just a paycheck that I worry if I’ll have in 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making decisions without really knowing what it takes to get work done at the lower (individual contributor) levels.

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

    Pros

    Pension, Healthcare benefits, ability to work on some interesting projects

    Cons

    Terrible managers, no promotional opportunities, below market pay, enormous bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    First, there are way too many layers of management. Second, please hire competent managers to run the various business units.

    I worked at AT&T as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All of the resources available at ATT such as T University, the interns will never be lost

    Cons

    Cross Functional team communication is sometimes weak but once you understand how to communicate with team members it gets easier.

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

    Pros

    1) Large organization...many different career paths you can take (if you are networked enough)
    2) Great colleagues

    Cons

    1) Last few years have been really tough...lots of lay-offs & no clearly defined strategy (if Time Warner does not go through, expect larger lay-offs)
    2) "Old boys club"...very hard as a woman, minority to make it through the ranks & be taken care of
    3) Employee morale is at an all-time low; lots of managers...very few leaders, most have left
    4) Big bureaucracy very frustrating to get anything done; AT&T does not exceed at executing...only purchasing other companies

    Advice to Management

    Randall Stephenson should of left after the T-Mobile debacle. Instead we have old SBC leadership in-charge and running the company into the ground. AT&T won't go away as it has global recognition, but it is far from what it once use to be. Get leaders who have personality, define a strategy, and learn to execute.

    Pros

    Unlimited opportunities, fantastic benefits, high integrity, high investment in employee development

    Cons

    limited opportunity to telecommute, centralizing jobs in Dallas, Atlanta and LA, heavy emphasis on being willing to relocate frequently and with little notice, annual force reductions to keep shareholders and margins happy

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

    Pros

    Potential opportunities, if you know the right people, to work on new technologies and business ventures that are large in scale and scope. Opportunity to work with lots of bright people who know the communications business well.

    Cons

    No structured approach to career growth. It depends to a large extent on who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Put better programs and structure in place for employees to take charge of and progress their careers and chart their course within the company.

    Pros

    Most managers are good people. Work/life balance is decent. AT&T can usually be counted on to make good strategic investments and stay focused on long term goals.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy can make it frustrating to get your job done or make you feel like you have to jump through too many hoops. Too much pressure to move to Dallas when there are plenty of other robust locations across the country.
