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

Pros

Benefits and compensation are really the only reason why I would recommend working for at&t. 401K, pension, tuition reimbursement, health insurance, and paid time off were all exemplary for such a low-level position.

Cons

Do not expect to be promoted into a non-retail sales channel position. The company has a very short-sighted view of customers; pushing to increase revenue per customer as opposed to retaining the customers that we currently had. Also expect to be measured on every possible metric as management keep subordinates under a microscope.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Cutting edge products and services. Size and Scale. Innovating in many key areas that only a very large company could.

    Cons

    Legacy of "dead" business collecting. Utility management mindset. Club mentality in the leadership. Results are not rewarded. Making the boss feel good is more important than the return on investment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting the legacy telco leaders. Share the strategy in real terms to the general management team. Make some decisions and stick with them.
