Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Benefits, benefits, benefits! Full medical, over 80 hours of paid vacation, free company phone, 50% off discount off of your your consumer account, and union. Great salary plus uncapped commission potential.

Cons

Very hard to get a lateral transfer, too much politics, company under appreciates their employees. Very poor attendance remorse system (i.e no sick days) Any paid time off has to be requested/approved in advance, otherwise you have to go through Family Medical Leave Act or get penalized.

Advice to Management

Fix the attendance system, give employees x amount of sick days before you penalize them. Show appreciation for your team by having team outings (i.e bowling, dave and busters, buffalo wildwings, etc.)

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AT&T as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to look for a better job while still making good money.
    Somewhat flexible hours.
    Telecommuting opportunities.

    Cons

    Impossible to get fired.
    Impossible to get hired as an FTE.
    Management doesn't want to deal with problems or issue people until other people or departments start to notice them.
    Technology is old and outdated. More often than not, quick bandaids will be applied to fix technology issues 'for now'.
    Money will be constantly wasted on projects that will go no where or eventually will be scraped.
    Long hours, which include working weekends.
    Management refuses to pay overtime.
    Attrition is high - good talent doesn't stay long once they learn how chaotic the work environment is.

    Advice to Management

    Good talent needs to be hired as an FTE instead of being a multiple year contractor.
