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.

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

    Pros

    Work from home was the norm for our team.

    Cons

    The employee review process was terrible, too much like what MSFT has been getting a bad rap for in the press recently. The off-shore teams who were supposed to complement the US based teams were never responsive and never tried to solve any issues - constantly calling during all hours of the night for us to solve an issue which they could have taken care of if they had just read the client notes.

    Advice to Management

    Allow managers to review employees fairly, not based on some fixed number of "excellent", "good" and "average" numbers. Need better management of the off-shore teams. Employees who truly are sub-par need to be dealt with instead of making the excellent employees pick up their slack.


  2. "Great co-workers, layed back management style - good place to work"

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

    Pros

    Work at you own pace, lots of time for self study.

    Cons

    With union battles seems there is no way to be converted from contractor.
    Unions!

    Advice to Management

    Bring back metrics, reward employees whom are working hard.
