    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AT&T for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Get the training and experience, then leave for better company. Do not let money trap you.

    Cons

    Employees are treated like two year olds or prisoners or felons. Managers in CA are hell bent on forcing retirement on everyone eligible or else they will "write them up" and start the "process". I have witnessed what amounts to age discrimination on more than one occasion.

    Advice to Management

    STOP THE INSANITY!!! You are pushing the core to the point of a total melt down. Is it a plan? Are you trying to force everyone out to bring in contractors at lower rates with no benefits? Contractors will not take ownership of the plant and facilities and the whole system will break down. STOP NOW!!! Apologize for your actions and treat your core with respect.

    I have been working at AT&T

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits for position

    Cons

    Can an organization just be too big to be effective?

    Advice to Management

    Spend time in the real world where your employees are.

    I have been working at AT&T

    Pros

    AT&T likes to think it's a forward thinking company. In some ways it is, and some ways it's absolutely not. The Pros to working for AT&T are that they do have decent benefits - although they've been reduced in recent years, just like most major companies.

    Cons

    The Cons are that the company doesn't pay well for non-retail jobs. In fact, as a trainer, I make less than the majority of the people I'm training - even if they are there on day one! Additionally, compensation is so spreadout (in my position, ranging from $39K - $99K in my market and similar markets) that it creates animosity.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate consistently.
