    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunities
    Flexible work life balance
    Great access to training resources

    Cons

    Lot of processes and people slow down product development. Its common to be on calls with 20+ participants where only a small subset are really involved.
    Work can be technically non-challenging as vendors do the implementation
    No stock grants below Director level
    Frequent layoffs - Last in First Out

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Committed people, focused on growth.

    Cons

    Raises are difficult to get. Every year there is a "only have 2.5%" raise pool. This effect not just your own salary, but everyone that works for you.

    If you really want to get ahead, you have to live in Atlanta or Dallas.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good yearly cash bonus based mainly on company performance, not individual.
    Good work life balance.

    Cons

    No growth prospects. Promotions based on availability, not based on performance. That too seniority takes precedence more than skills. Low benefits, insufficient paternity and maternity days with full pay.

    Advice to Management

    Give opprtunity to shine, grow. Put more faith in all the employees, not just a few.

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

    Pros

    Free phone service college reimbursement

    Cons

    Att customer service is already poor and it's only going to get worse since many of the retail customer facing jobs are being out sourced to Lee's that qualified candidates..att's goal is to cut 10000 jobs in 3 years so unless you are in a high level senior leadership position there is minimal job security. Commissions are garbage. Salary is mediocre. Get them to reimburse you for in schooling and bounce

    Advice to Management

    Start putting value in your people again..

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

    Pros

    Large and prominent name brand. Good benefits, and pretty good pay depending on which business or role you are in. Great working in cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    Large company problems - too many processes, too political, hard to get things done because there are so many stakeholders. The traditional job security aspect of the company is no longer the case.

    Advice to Management

    No matter how much you evangelize change, it's hard to actually get that done without real commitment financially and procedurally,

    Pros

    Good union job, good benefits, fair salary, low stress, big company with offices and positions all over the US.

    Cons

    Company moved jobs to right to work state, laid off union employees. Big disconnect with upper management and what technicians actually did.

    Pros

    At every job you'll find some great people and that was the case for me at the location where I worked.

    Cons

    Rigid and highly political. Terrible software tools, not welcoming of new ideas. Pay mediocre for the position, not competitive for the area. Most people are trying to leave.

    Advice to Management

    They are too arrogant and stuck to listen.

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

    Pros

    Good opportunities to grow your career if you are willing to re-locate every couple years. Much of the senior leadership in this company started in an entry level role and worked their way up the ladder. This is a big company with 250K+ employees with lots of networking potential.

    Cons

    This company prefers to promote people that are willing to re-locate (even for local positions). This makes sense for the company since it ensures that training and development is focused on talent that is willing to move to wherever the next opportunity is - but it limits opportunities for those that want to stay long term in a specific geography.
