    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.

    Pros

    Large company, market leader. Moving into the entertainment field offering new opportunities for growth. Excellent online training resources for skill development.

    Cons

    No management promotion opportunities unless an employee relocates to Dallas or Atlanta. Very stingy on budget and benefits are not steller..

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and actually put plans in place for a better more energized workforce.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large Company with offices in Dallas, Atlanta and Los Angeles (DirectV). If you are willing to move you can have a long middle manager career with AT&T. Great set of healthcare benefits and vacation (3 weeks after 4 years) plus holidays, discounted phone and free DirectV.

    Great work life balance. Rarely is there any email or calls that need to be responded to over a weekend.

    Great working peers.

    Cons

    Organizational silos are prevalent throughout AT&T. Everybody focuses on what is in their inbox and does not really have a good grasp how other groups function. Some middle (AVP) to senior (SVP) levels of the organization need to be replaced. Many of these folks have been in their roles too long and contribute to the apathy that has affected some teams. There cannot be a change in culture until some of these leaders have been replaced. Notwithstanding the most senior levels of the company (CEO) are great! They have done a wonderful job of keeping AT&T relevant in a changing world.

    Career advancement is very difficult. AT&T probably has the largest workforce of senior managers on the planet. Unless you have been "selected" for a leadership track upward movement is impossible. Consequently many senior level job postings already have a preferred candidate.

    Compensation is below the midpoint but the company has a great work life balance when you compare it to other tech companies.

    AT&T is a great place to work as long as you understand what you are getting into!

    Advice to Management

    Over communicate! This is key as the company goes thru its transition from a telco to a media company where existing roles will be eliminated. Change up the senior levels of the org to map to the new company. 360 reviews need to happen for execs.
