I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

At&t is a great company to work for with great benefits. Positions outside of retail are very promising and can lead to a great career. Benefits are plentiful and you can work with some good people. Compensation is good for most positions with at&t as well.

Cons

Poor RETAIL MANAGEMENT. Stay out of RETAIL. If you're a manager you will deal with lazy union employees, incompetent senior management, and working 50 hours a week to barely make 60,000. You only receive two weeks paid vacation for anything less than 5 years being with the company and if you do decide to take a vacation it is frowned upon. STAY OUT OF RETAIL

Advice to Management

Hire Senior Managers who care about their employees and your employees will care about customers

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

    Pros

    Extremely easy sales, if you are an aggressive person you can make a decent commission. Most co workers were easy to get along with. Managers were helpful at times.

    Cons

    At&t is constantly changing its policies, managers are leaving as fast as they came in. Sometimes the monthly goals were a bit high.

    Advice to Management

    During my time with this company I noticed co-workers struggling with some aspects of their job instead of managers trying to help those people out they would write them up. It seemed they did this to keep their job.

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

    Pros

    Lots of positions available if you want to make a lateral or upward move. They take chances on people and want them to excel. At least that was my experience, perhaps I was lucky. :)

    Cons

    Big company, lots of annoying paperwork and processes that you will find in big companies. Har to get things done as technical resources are committed to projects nearly years in advance.

    Advice to Management

    Find the hidden gems and promote them without some elongated process.
