    Pros

    Growing industry, the top firm in the telecom/IT space, exciting and evolving strategy. Many very smart people. National presence and variety of positions/opportunities.

    AT&T has an excellent, long-term-view strategy to continue as the industry lead. It is critical that managers be made to manage DOWNward as well as upward, with at least as much attention/energy/focus.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts on services and benefits such as insurance and 401k.Hourly pay is good especially during holidays. Depending on your locations management does look out for you

    Cons

    Commissions are very low with high unrealistic goals. Unfortunately not all managers have your back when necessary. Retail locations are becoming customer service locations and pay does not reflect that

    Advice to Management

    Compensate reps the way they should be
