I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

If you fall into the right organization, there is a lot of training to be had. What I have liked most about working here is the opportunity at self evolution - meaning I have been able to steer my career and try out various roles to find the best fit.
IT is moving slowly towards more of a virtual (telecommuting) model. This allows greater flexibility and more work/life balance.

Cons

1. One of the worst things as a "manager" is having to cover for "strike duty" while the union is going through contract negotiations. We have to do potentially life threatening jobs with very little training. If we take a vacation and a strike is called, we must cancel our vacation even if out of town - and report to strike assignment.
2. There have been a fair number of layoffs towards the end of every year.
3. The salaries are a bit under market but they make up for it with decent benefits.

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

    Pros

    Good Salary, Bonus, and Benefits.

    Cons

    Often working after hours and consecutive weekends. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Have compassion for your employees. Merit skill and abilities instead of years of seniority.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    getting to work alongside some great professionals in thier fields
    i have worked with many more people i respect than do not
    lots of innovation - interesting work
    good benefits
    access to upper level management when needing to reach out, take care of issues, colaborate, & more

    Cons

    company moves at the speed of snails . . . slow.
    i.e. - installation on complex services is slow & does not compete well in fast pace environment against smaller more nible telco's
    i.e. taking care of customer issues (billing, fixing services, account movement) is so slow it damages customer relationships

    company does not take care of employees who move internally in the company. i have always heard you have to leave at&t & come back to get a good base pay raise. i have been through it now a couple times & it is a very true statement

    Advice to Management

    treat current employees as well as those in the talent recruitment pool
    truly be 1 at&t - not silos. many many silos still today
