    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at AT&T as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting technology and many newer and changing opportunities for individuals to develop their talents with a world class company, while also developing a flexible career.

    Cons

    The diversity of the many technologies which the company employs can push the learning curves and adaption of employees to changing tech to become frustrating, particularly if you are an employee that is unfortunately stuck in a legacy technology which is slowly becoming more obsolete, but still needs bodies for many years to go.

    Advice to Management

    Consider developing appropriate contracting channels for specific programs which are in decline and planned removal so that younger employees do not get stuck with responsibilities which later make them more vulnerable to downsizing.
