    Lots of opportunity to move around the company & work on new products.

    Process heavy with lots of administrative overhead.

    Advice to Management

    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

    Great experience working at att. Amazing coworkers and very meaningful work. Enjoyed it very much.

    Cons

    At the moment, just cut down on some of the processes. Indeed there should be processes, but some seem to be redundant.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate faster.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and regular raises. Nature of work means you're not in the same place all day every day. Because you're on your own most of the time, you learn to problem solve, troubleshoot and come up with potential solutions on your own before immediately having someone else do so for you (but resources do exist).

    Cons

    You work in all weather, and in homes of folks that aren't always clean or desirable to be in. Moving out of the SDNA field and into a different area of the company seems somewhat rare.

    Pros

    Most managers are good people. Work/life balance is decent. AT&T can usually be counted on to make good strategic investments and stay focused on long term goals.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy can make it frustrating to get your job done or make you feel like you have to jump through too many hoops. Too much pressure to move to Dallas when there are plenty of other robust locations across the country.
