    Pros

    You can start in one job, find yourself tired of doing the same thing, and decide to find something else to do. They have an internal database that lists opportunities, and they promote from within before hiring from the outside.

    Cons

    Jobs, especially at the lower levels, can carry a lot of stress with them. The unions want to hold on to their members, and the jump from union to non-union is a difficult one at best. If at all possible, get a union job before going management, as the benefits are good for life.

    Advice to Management

    Desk jobs are as doable for those a few years older as they are for those younger. Don't rule out interviewing someone due to their age.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    AT&T has thought me a lot about operations, metrics, and KPIs. Unfortunately, metrics have been used to manage folks behavior instead of the business.

    Cons

    AT&T has exposed me to many different bad management styles and outdated processes. I discovered over time that the company is very slow to move due to red tape and union rules.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing people and adopt a culture of innovation.
