    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You have the potential to work in a large company that has multiple different avenues for growth. There are opportunities to work on pretty cool tech, both in breadth and depth, that you can't find elsewhere.

    Cons

    Downsizing has been going on for the last 6 years, and shows no sign of abatement, which has had a negative effect on morale. Benefits are okay, but not great. Leadership doesn't really care, they're just putting in their time until retirement, or they deploy their "golden parachute".

    Advice to Management

    If you want to hire and develop great people, and take AT&T to the next level, stop worrying about the stock price and the analysts so much and focus on treating your people better.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Excellent internal training opportunities in the areas of leadership, technology and human relations.

    Cons

    Highest level leadership in sync with managers and staff, the problem is everything in the middle. Minimal advancement opportunities or promotions, focus on individual department productivity instead of overall company customer service with the goal of generating impressive departmental productivity reports that do not include customer service ratings.

    Advice to Management

    AT&T will become a great company when this happens. Internal Customer Service Rating = External Customer Service Rating
