    Pros

    I experienced no pro's, it offered to all employee's.

    Cons

    It's offered, if your disability is long term they will fight you tooth and nail document everything and you have to certify every year that your still disabled even with SSA your will eventually lose your LTD health coverage.

    Practice the Integrity you insist your employee's have and help direct them to the proper resources and provide any documentation to assist an employee's claim if in your possession.

    Pros

    lots of complex opportunities and a lot of great people who have a lot to teach.

    Cons

    business is in transition, lower margins, always in cost mode.

    Advice to Management

    Merger wars can't go on forever. You can't buy yourself a new future every time and run from the legacy past.

    - Flexibility
    - Company that keeps on adapting to change which will always make it relevant to the future opportunity for job security.

    Cons

    - transparency needs to be work on threw upper leadership

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your network and ERG groups. There is going to be a lot of change all the time with different leadership so re building your image will happen quite a bit. If you are a manager who will be willing to relocate you can move up fast in the company.

    Pros

    Decent pay if you are a full time regular employee.

    Cons

    Too many managers that are all related. If you don’t have a lifelong friend or relative that is in management then you are just a disposable tool.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Good benefits, good career growth opportunity.

    Cons

    As someone said, it is sort of ridiculous you have to leave the company and come back at higher pay. Almost everyone that left, came back at higher salary. Seems to be the case and what people do. If you are in Acquisition sales it will grind you out and it is truly sad when the fiber sales executives have only one quota bucket and can smash it and easily double their commission. Acquisition folks are totally mistreated in pay. Having three quota buckets one of them matching the fiber sales executives but double or triple their quota. Its ridiculous. I have no idea who thought that was a good idea to make Acquisition position feel even worse lol. I haven't met one person who if I had one on one conversation with actually doesn't think they are unfairly paid compared to fiber executives. Mangers know it, VPs know it but above that it gets ignored. Plus we are told to sell the strategic services portion but paid the least on it. I mean common! Man's gotta pay bills, its almost like they want you to hate your job and leave. And not to mention you have to deal with escalations that are not of your own making since you manage a module. Word of advice if you this is the position you are seeking run away. Yea you can hustle and grind but you will never make as much as the fiber folks who can open hunt and double or tripe their commission. Take that position all day. If AT&T paid us fairly on commision on the work load we take I would say its worth it. But a lot of people get burned out in this position.

    Advice to Management

    Increase job satisfaction of Acquisition sales.

    Pros

    Good benefits such as product concession, good opportunity for advancement. Excellent support from direct leadership. Good education/training opportunities.

    Cons

    Employee surplus seems to occur frequently (almost annually over the past few years)

    Advice to Management

    Company should ensure to value employee talent and contributions over contractors. Too many times have I seen valuable employees surplussed when contractors are maintained.
