    Company greed
    Micromanagement

    No opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    All of you should be fired and have new staff that actually care about their people brought in. You just care about yourselves and its disgusting!!!

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

    Pros

    1) AT&T, CA is a recognized brand.
    2) Customer service is a top priority at all levels, both in house and out.
    3) Salaries are above average and raises are given annually. Amount of raise based on performance. Salaried employees get a yearly bonus based on AT&T performance.
    4) Training & Education benefits
    5) Health & retirement benefits are better than most other companies. At the time of my full time employment, I was fully vested in the retirement plan after 5 years, instead of 7 or more years for most companies.
    6) The San Ramon Campus is one of the nicest places work. It has two man made lakes. There is plenty of parking spaces & easily accessible by public transportation.
    7) It is very close to all kinds of shopping, eating, & other services.

    Cons

    1) A telecommunications company that would NOT allow more of it's employees to telecommute from home. Thus, creating more ozone damage, using more energy at it's huge San Ramon Campus, and negative commute economics.
    2) Outsourced many jobs out of country.
    3) Outsourced my department to a smaller company, then got laid off & got smaller severance package instead of getting AT&T's severance package.
    4) Got laid off after returning from medical leave of absence.

    Advice to Management

    1) Treat employees as good as good as your customers.
    2) A telecommunications company should let most of their employees telecommute/work from home.
    3) Keep improving service & products.
