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

Pros

Get the training and experience, then leave for better company. Do not let money trap you.

Cons

Employees are treated like two year olds or prisoners or felons. Managers in CA are hell bent on forcing retirement on everyone eligible or else they will "write them up" and start the "process". I have witnessed what amounts to age discrimination on more than one occasion.

Advice to Management

STOP THE INSANITY!!! You are pushing the core to the point of a total melt down. Is it a plan? Are you trying to force everyone out to bring in contractors at lower rates with no benefits? Contractors will not take ownership of the plant and facilities and the whole system will break down. STOP NOW!!! Apologize for your actions and treat your core with respect.

    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    Technology is old and outdated.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.

    I worked at AT&T as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    most of the employees were accessable and very eager to be mentors and have chats (for higher up managers, the wait is longer but I was even able to get some top executives to have a chat for 15 minutes), amazing pay for intern, many informative info sessions and training sessions

    Cons

    you get to realize that in a large corporation like AT&T, it's hard to matter- it takes away some intrinsic value of work.
