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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, although not as good as they used to be.

    Cons

    Continuous improvement and streamlining to the point of insanity. As soon as you get a process to work, leadership has changed and you scrap what was working and start again.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep leadership in place long enough for him/her to actually have to take ownership of the mess they initiate when they step in to "fix" things that are already working.

    Pros

    Great opportunities and projects to work.

    Cons

    Becoming Texas based company vs. national company, progressions are limited to none if you are not from Texas or willing to move to Texas.

    Pros

    Predictable, newly remodeled offices in Redmond

    Cons

    No real amenities, limited job opportunities and LOTS of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Very tough environment in Redmond, WA if you are looking to advance your career. Not a lot of local opportunities and company is just as bureaucratic as you might think of a company this size.

    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

    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..
