    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, varied and and large breadth of high tech disciplines to pursue, impressive range and quantity of internal/external training opportunities, very rich history of innovation.

    Cons

    Very large company, despite recent great efforts - still not as agile as smaller companies

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work but please revamp the internal job search process, especially the web based job search.

    Pros

    Company has good benefits. Many people have been with AT&T for over 20 years, showing that the company values its people

    Cons

    Not necessarily a comment against this company in particular, but as with all large companies it can be cumbersome and difficult to function an an agile way. Especially very diverse companies

    Advice to Management

    None

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's probably an OK place to start, but I don't recommend staying here too long. Dental benefits seem to be above average (if you are willing to pay extra for that). Other benefits are slightly below par.

    Cons

    Raises are terrible.range 2-3% over a period of years. Morale is terrible. They used to have a defined benefit pension plan, but they did away with that. I think the only reason a lot of the old timers stay is because they got in on that before it was done away with.

    Advice to Management

    Hire Americans. Better 401K matching. Pay market wages instead of H1B wages. This company tends to hire the cheapest possible labor it can find, and in a lot of cases, it shows. The amount of corporate email spam is very high. We should have a charge code just for going through it.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management is very accommodating and willing to allow workers to go on "overhead" for a few months while finding a contract that suits them. Pay is good, bonuses are good (lumped in with Business group). Treat holders of security clearances VERY well. Some opportunities for training.

    Cons

    Training opportunities are obvious at the whim of budget and usually only approved if applicable to current contract. Hard to get training to open future opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with training, look toward future opportunities for worker training instead of just what will help with current contracts.
