I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits and retirement are competitive. Chance to work your way up with experience vs. education (to a degree). Most supervisors tend to be flexible with taking vacation and or paid time off.

Cons

Big business mentality. To much emphasis on numbers. The emphasis on numbers creates safety hazards as well as inferior work.

Advice to Management

Look beyond numbers sometimes.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training available.
    Once excellent benefits still passable.

    Cons

    Once Southwestern Bell bought out the old AT&T the company values went out the window. They outsourced my entire organization to a self-owned consulting company which then laid off 70% of the workforce. This bit of operating gutted what had always been a generous seperation package. Employees not part of the old SBC are not desired or appreciated.


  2. "Good pay and benefits thanks to the union, but terrible me attitude."

    I worked at AT&T part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, Medical benefits, 401k, free phone service, strong ability to advance, and exciting working with new technology.

    Cons

    Stressful sales goals, demanding, bad management, managers that have high sales get promoted and not those who would actually do a good job managing others.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and get to know your employees, show them you care and maybe turnover would decrease.
