    I have been working at AT&T (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very large company. If you like contributing to very large initiatives, this is a good place for you.

    Cons

    Very large company with lots of overhead, administration and politics.

    Advice to Management

    Let engineers do the work without all of the noise and interference from 4 layers of middle management.
    Hire some administrative staff to do administrative work so skilled engineers are not doing energy and time consuming silly stuff.

    Pros

    Slow paced which means you can work your own pace. Company car plus gas card. Salary which is good and a bad

    Cons

    Not a lot of sales opportunity. Sadly it depends on the territory they assign to you . Being salary they really try to work you 10-12 hours

    Advice to Management

    This job wouldn’t be that bad if expectations were set properly. Higher salary wage and less at risk would make sales reps not think about leaving the company

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good, although not as good as they used to be.

    Cons

    Continuous improvement and streamlining to the point of insanity. As soon as you get a process to work, leadership has changed and you scrap what was working and start again.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep leadership in place long enough for him/her to actually have to take ownership of the mess they initiate when they step in to "fix" things that are already working.

    I worked at AT&T full-time

    Pros

    None none none none none

    Cons

    Don’t even waste your time applying for this job. I applied for a full time retail position at Seattle, was asked to do a video interview, did a lot of preparation and used almost an hour to throughly answer the questions and got a email after saying so far so good. Then the next day just randomly got a no thank you email.

    Advice to Management

    Probably has no idea what is considered a good employee.
