    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This was one of the most satisfying jobs I have ever had. It provided challenges and rewards unlike any other. There was a balance between work, community and family that allowed for location, remote and virtual workspace give a sense of accomplishment and truly made me feel as if I was making a difference. The culture and values of the company made me more socially aware and active. To this day I still involve myself is community affairs and helping people in need.

    Cons

    There were no real "cons" to the job. I was part of a FMP, otherwise given the choice I would still be working for the company to this day.

    Advice to Management

    Consider previous employees separated by factors or reasons beyond there control for future positions that become available in the new AT&T. Some of us would love to go back to work for the company.

    Pros

    Pay raises are very good. You almost top out within a few years. Decent Equipment is provided for you at no cost

    Cons

    So many people compete for one position that may be open across the country. It is seniority based regardless of where you are from

    No advice to managers
