    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits, lots of different avenues to advance your career. Gives you a good experience to have on your resume.

    Cons

    Retail is not the way to go. Lot of lay offs and management is not interested in anyone’s advancement, only their own paychecks.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for your employees in your stores. The high pressure that is transferred down through the chain of command is overwhelming and creates a poor work environment.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and decent starting salary, especially for new college-hire program
    Flexible work hours (for the most part)

    Cons

    The projects being worked on are all very old school. If you aren't located at headquarters, you get stuck working on silly dashboards and old backend systems.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good vacation day/ Paid Time Off
    Can feel part of a massive corporate office that actually impacts the world economy
    The scale and level of business is large and significant
    Can have funds to participate in collaboration with other technology giants

    Cons

    If you are a technical person with the desire to work on quality and vision, this is not the place
    The bureaucracy and politics completely halt projects and progress
    There are very few projects that truly deal with cutting edge technology. Most of the time they are pretty hypocritical about their fancy marketing and they throw lots of money to make sure they are on top and other companies bend to their will. They recognize they are a powerful brand and use that power to bully others to do as they say or else.
    Hyper competitive culture but never a real meritocracy only making friends and playing games with people
    A lot of useless job positions and roles that just add process and slow everything down.
    Not enough surpluses

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking more is better
    Stop focusing on your bonuses
    When you say you are investing in a technology or a project or trying to do something to the tech community, really invest and fund the projects as a truly intrinsic good. Do not try to make people do your dirty work

    Pros

    Great pay for the work that you do. They will train you in whatever job you have. Really good benefits.

    Cons

    Some departments are 24/7 depending on the job. Not a huge turn over people work there forever so getting ahead in seniority is hard. Schedules and vacation time done in seniority order

    Advice to Management

    What is done for one should be done for another.
