    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are many positions in the company and a lot of learning opportunities. They offer to find up to a Master level degree in certain areas.

    Cons

    There is a lot of volatility lately with force reductions due to debt reduction efforts. Makes it a not nice environment at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on track with your message. You can’t ask folks to give their all, learn new skills and then let them go simply based on where they sit, without the option to move.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, exciting projects, great people, great pay and excellent training.

    Cons

    They have been quietly laying off 5k + people per year and will continue to do so through 2020. Use caution, especially if you are over 40 years old. Age discrimination is a very big problem there - even with employees that have kept up with with skills training.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Big company, good experience, tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    Lay offs, constant pressure for numbers, lead with fear not motivation, lack of work life balance, hours are long and salary doesn’t reflect the 10-12 hour days, capped commissions

    Advice to Management

    I used to take pride in working for AT&T, the product and services we sold were always in the top of the competitors. We used to get compensated great and “tier out” when we would exceed our monthly goals. Now they cap our commission and will announce when they lift the cap like it’s a reward to us and can cap it whenever they want. Hourly sales employees are usually Union if it’s a corporate sales job but the union is...

    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    got a paycheck on time

    Cons

    Forced overtime! Management constantly tried to cheat you out of money. management broke laws and rules, and when reported was told it "wouldn't happen again" but continued in other ways. Hard to move in the company if you don't know someone already higher than you. Management makes up their own rules and change them constantly expecting you to know they changed. Bought DirecTV and Time Warner Media, trying to get a good...

    I worked at AT&T full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Average 15/hr plus commission average of 1500.

    Cons

    Horrible work life balance. As a new employee you will have the WORST shifts. I got very tired of working 12-Close 5 days a week. The schedule is based on senority which seems fair until you realize how overworked you are compared to everyone else. Exhuasting to say the least. Also, you will be on your feet for those 9+ hours and leaning will result in a talk with management and potential write ups. -Very cut...

    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good pay and reasonable benefits

    Cons

    Long hours because its retail, no sick days, vacation is hard to request and has to be done 2 months in advance. Point system that punishes you when you are sick or have an emergency. Not easy to move up or out of retail environment, management does not understand the meaning of leadership or what it takes to build loyalty in a team.

    Advice to Management

    start valuing your employees
