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

    Pros

    Fortune 10 company, a largely believing and positive workforce that bring conviction to their jobs. Good benefits and competitive locational salaries. Huge preeminence in wireless and telecom subsidizing the entertainment forays.

    Cons

    Pious management, invents as it goes, quite arbitrary on the entertainment side, but has a great pitch and regular spins in the media and internally, evident disconnect between the cheer leading (claims it is an innovative workplace like Google) and realities on the ground. Fair share of arbitrary micro mangers. Part of the workforce skeptical but the ride is good. Another layoff just around the corner. Splurges and then pinches. Messages get distilled (or brushed under the carpet) as they go up the chain and come out smelling of professional speech writing full of achievement and 'we're going places' with a hint of tempering due to the challenges buried subtly.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage some dissent and act on it, it can be healthy. Institute 360 reviews, the best way to get the right pulse.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, perks and 401k

    Cons

    Everything else that is not listed in pros. Horrible management, HR, and hours.

    Advice to Management

    Practice all the stuff the company preaches to the press. This is by far the poorest managed company I have ever worked for. Obedience is rewarded over work ethic, skill and experience.

    Pros

    Great company to work and grow along with your career development. Company provides a lot trainings each year to keep employees abreast of new technologies.

    Despite top managements trying their best, big company, things usually slow to implement due to lack of having applicable projects or experienced engineers.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay, 401k, Opportunity to learn and grow, culture, diversity

    Cons

    Constant layoffs or forced retirements resulting in teams working lots of overtime and or not completing projects or just basis IT development on time or in budget or not at all in some cases

    Advice to Management

    Good managers overall but do not put pressure on teams to produce once you get rid of the people with most of the experience and institutional knowledge. All that does is cause employees to look for other opportunities, even at a pay cut.
