    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Horrible company. it used to be very nice. But the atmosphere became very bad once indians started moving to Management levels

    Cons

    Too much of caste feelings. if you are from Chowdary community, then you are selected with interview as a formality. Lots of Managers are from this community and all of their wives are also working in the same company. While working inside AT&T, these chowdarys behave as if they don;t know each other. But actually all of them know each other. They are working as a System and fooling whole AT&T. Most of these guys are working in Wireless and Ecommerce IT side and most of them are playing the roles of Director and VP etc. Their wives don;t work and team was expected to take their load.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the chowdarys joined AT&T in 2001 with fake experience. Lots of fraud was done by them using vendors like Tech Mahindra, Infosys, HCL, Cognizant etc. These chowdarys are acting as a System and are not allowing anyone to get into higher positions.
