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

Pros

AT&T is actively working to implement open technologies and become more of a tech company and less of a telecomm. There are amazing opportunities to have your work have a massive effect

Cons

It's still AT&T, and it is still a HUGE battleship that moves slow. If you're looking to get in and make big changes right away, look elsewhere. The most frustrating thing is when you can successfully make lasting change in your group and that change is negated by your own management up the line or parallel groups

Advice to Management

    I worked at AT&T full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Good pay
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Management was so focused on micro-management of employees they weren't able to do their jobs
    - I ended up quitting in training due to the cult like feeling on the company
    - You honestly can not speak to anyone about any disagreements you have about the company, a manager, or anything because they will go and tell management and you will be in the office over something you didn't like

    Advice to Management

    Lay off on the micro-management and let people breathe if you treat the employees well and let them do their jobs without you breathing down their necks all the time they will do a good job
