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

    Pros

    Great working environment. Plenty of free coffee & tea.

    Cons

    Way too many contractors. Contractors get treated like 2nd class. Lack of technical depth. Decision making without solid technical understanding of impacting decisions. Lack leadership with real "engineering" backgrounds. Having a software development background is not equivalent to having prior experience working at real engineering firms producing products and having an ABET accredited engineering degree. Experience & academic training trumps all. It was tough having to work as a contractor and being challenged by leadership that was extremely technically incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Treat contractors better, covert more (faster), and hire people that have strong technical backgrounds for leadership positions.
