    Hours couldn’t be any better, and the people they hire are really nice to be around.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time

    Pros

    Wide array of exciting products to work on.

    Cons

    Product management is all over the place. Not much effective leadership from on high. Company tries to cut costs at all the most ridiculous places like charging FTE money to use the on site gym.
