Pros

AT&T has good salary and benefits. The people I worked with are open, honest, and helpful. I loved telecommuting.

Cons

    Cons

    No professional growth, no opportunities for advancement

    Treat employees with respect. Sometimes we feel we are being used for company profits only without regard to employee

    Pros

    The benefits are very good for a large company and the pay is decent if you work eneough hours. The technology is always advancing as well.

    You work a lot of long hours and when you try to advance the company promotes people they are friendly with instead of the people qualified

    Advice to Management

    Promote the people that deserve to be promoted not based on politics
