    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great to employee, good benefits and pay.

    Cons

    WV is a small part of the corporate ladder. Unless ur willing to relocate, growth in that area is minimal

    Advice to Management

    Offer more opportunity in non corporate hubs.

    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    A pay check (but count on their Jethro-accounting math causing you to not get paid for at least one pay period with very little, if any warning. If you supervise people you'll have the joy of explaining to your people why they aren't getting paid).

    Cons

    A terrible, oppressive business model based on a Monopoly mindset that hasn't been viable since the 1970s. BUT, since Congress now helps build Monopolies, their way doing things makes more sense, even if it does suck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking at people like they are disposable office supplies. Stop pandering to your ERGs one month out of the year and LISTEN to their leaders. Stop pulling random metrics out of thin air or firing people because your IT guys can't sync a large phone system on a single clock. Stop looking at discipline like a one-size-fits-all process. Don't make people in training work until 11:30 on Christmas Eve without a damn...

    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Not going anywhere, until the upcoming anti-trust hearings to break up the monopoly over media and its distribution channels; I’m guessing in 2022.

    Cons

    Standard, unimaginative US Mega-conglomerate. Att is what happens when a utility company pretends to be a Silicon Valley tech company. This cumbersome, antiquated giant buys up small agile companies with millions of financed dollars, all so they can own mediocre ideas it absorbs into their average-ness. The leaders are chasing what’s “hot” in the market instead of leading with innovation, even though internally they...

    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Benefits are slightly above average; working with new technologies is interesting

    Cons

    I could write a book on how awful this company is to work for. I gave them plenty of time and opportunities to give me reasons to stay, yet they fell short on every mark. Here's an example: when DirecTV was bought out, AT&T actually had to LOWER their entry-level pay scale they were so proud of being "transparent" with, because DirecTV staffers made less than what AT&T was paying their equivalent. So instead of...

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees. TRUST your employees. PAY your employees what they are really worth, not what an analyst says. Here's a shocking revelation: when you treat employees like adults and not children, they'll willingly promote the company and give you more effort! Stop reading the Harvard Business Review articles - they're a waste of your time and you won't be able to implement them anyway. I'd also advise anyone...

    Love the work, the people and the benefits.

    lots of travel in my position, lots of shifting always taking place within this business.

    Pros

    Global Brand, Employee Benefits and Discounts

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees fairly. Do not discriminate employees based on tenure, race, or ethnicity. Promote employees with talent and skill, not just your friends.

    I have been working at AT&T for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and ability to work from home regularly is a huge perk. Annual bonus of 13 % is great but not always guaranteed.

    Cons

    High, and many times unrealistic expectations. Mature organization with many processes that hinder innovation even though that is what leadership is asking for.
