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

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive, flexible with telecommuting, understanding when family issues crop up and giving time off when needed.

    Cons

    Relentless meetings! Meetings are so prevalent that it makes getting work done very difficult.

     The unorganization of the area in which i worked was so maddening as to be comical. Projects are en endless loop of frustrating rework. There are no clear boundaries or directions and projects seem to never end.

    Management unwilling to purchase needed resources needed to make projects move forward. Consequently work is poorly done and takes way longer than it should. The endless meetings are a factor here too..

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs of your employees and honor some of their requests.

    Also possibly don't invite unnecessary people to meetings. It's amazing any work gets done at all due to this meeting-mad compan.

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

    Pros

    A very stable corporation. They take great pains to not lay off anyone and there are opportunities to grow. Compensation is on par.

    Cons

    A huge corporation, it's tough to get noticed. It's tough to feel like you're making an impact. Way too much management for a technical company. Management is the platform for promotion, not technical ability. There essentially is no path for advancement in a technical discipline.

    Advice to Management

    Create additional incentives to make business units seem like smaller concerns. Provide more extensive path for promotion for workers content to remain in purely technical, non-leadership positions.
