    Pros

    Benefits were great, good training program

    Cons

    Ahhh bureaucracy at its finest. So much middle management that by time the information got to you, there was no clear objective. So many people who slept on the job but couldn't be fired because of all the union red tape. I was hired in at low pay beause I was young, and the group hired with me for this technology-dependent position were all middle aged but worked for the company in the 70s and 80s. I ran circles around them with all the computer software and comprehension, when two of them couldn't even figure out how to turn on the computer! Needless to say, they made TWICE what I did, and I was doing most of their jobs so that they wouldn't hold me back. What a joke. And management would just shrug 'oh well', because excelling at my position made them fear for their own jobs. What a way to lead a team, let me tell ya.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the contractors, because all of their work needs to be redone. You are essentially paying two people for one job. And promote from within, not off the street to keep the pay scales low! You are only hurting yourselves with the unqualified and high turnover rate. Merit based raises or bonuses would be nice.


  2. "Overall good corporate environment with experienced professionals"

    Pros

    Great leadership and mentorship experience, relaxed atmosphere. Good benefits/perks.
    Has a program for hiring military vets.
    Good exit opportunities, if it ever comes to that.

    Cons

    As the phone company, they are very tight with security. Many strict access protocols, network verification procedures, etc. Not really a con, but something to consider.
    Their HR process is inefficient, like many large companies.
    Also could benefit from more diversity (age, background, etc.). But they are trying to improve this.

    Advice to Management

    AT&T Corporate could probably benefit from hiring more entry level employees for their technical contributions.
