Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Benefits are okay, pays better than most other retail jobs.

Cons

Too many hands stirring the same pot without knowing what the other hand is doing... Comical "one AT&T" mantra with differences in policy from store to customer care.

Advice to Management

Be personable and give a face to the upper management rather than sending demands down the pipeline.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generally stable company. It's a big name to have on your resume. Provides experience working with very large projects. Management opportunities appear to be abundant. Pay is generous.

    Cons

    IT work is frequently pushed offshore with little regard to quality, creating long-term maintenance difficulties. Immediate tactical cost savings are valued much more than long-term strategic planning. Career advancement is laughable - promotions/progressions are constantly put "on hold" indefinitely. Non-performers are coddled instead of cut. Forced ranking rating system punishes high performing teams.

    Advice to Management

    Throw away the red tape. Embrace Agile software development. Treat employees with respect, rewarding those who excel.
