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

Pros

AT&T is a large company with opportunity for movement, both laterally and horizontally.

Cons

Being a large company, it is necessary to manuever politics and bueracracy to some degree.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company pays fairly well, and the health insurance and benefits are good for a job that doesn't require a degree.

    Cons

    They will micromanage you to an infuriating degree. Every word you speak to a customer is listened to and then thrown back at you; ("Why didnt you say this?" "You arent greeting customers correctly." "It's great that you talked about that, but you really should have walked them over to that product that they were not interested in.") The company builds files on you so if they ever need to fire you they can. The commision structure can pay very well, but you will be in trouble because you did not sell the AT&T way. So you have to decide between making money and being in trouble, or not making money and being in less trouble.

    Advice to Management

    Stop introducing new "innovating devices" and work on customer service. The tablets we sell are expensive and poorly made. The new products we are forced to push on people are nothing more then revenue generating for the company. On top of all these new horrible products, the pay gets worse and worse. Stop increasing quota without increasing pay.

    Advice to Management

    Work on painting a realistic picture earlier on of how the program graduates will be evaluated once they finish the program and enter the field.
