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Technology is old and outdated.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.

    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.


  2. "Stressful"

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere that allowed employees to work comfortably. A lot of employee recognition for employees who continuously did well on quality assurance monthly.

    Cons

    Training, at least for me, was great at the time but i feel it did not prepare me for much of the work. Mandatory overtime became ridiculous and caused a lot of stress to many workers. Their points system is screwed up! Management acted as if they did not want to take an escalated call and speak with the customers when needed.
