    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Direct Managers have been great to work for as they are very personable and appreciate the work that you do. Benefits and perks have been nice. I love what I do and enjoy challenges and enhancing my skillsets.

    Cons

    As the years have gone by from my initial start date to the present, the AVP level and up management have become less involved with work, employee success, and overall concern for what workers should be doing to succeed. Personal pay increases have not been in-line with the market, but the top management seems to enjoy bonuses in the millions of dollars. I would hate for the last 5 years define my overall review of...

    Advice to Management

    I get it that upper management (AVP +) have numbers to fulfill, but sometimes they should take a step back and realize how to make the workplace a better environment. Take a poll with your workers as to what works and what doesn't when it comes to collaboration. You're not Google, you're not Apple and you don't have a community lifestyle like these companies. The Company was built on roots on access everywhere and...

    Pros

    Decent benefits- that’s about it

    Cons

    HORRIBLE COMPANY! Constant layoffs! Management has also restricted Telecommuting. Employees used to be able to work from home all the time- now it is limited to 4 times a month. Impossible to find workspace at corporate locations- everything is “drop in” and you need to haul all your stuff into the office daily. Long hours and absolutely NO WORK LIFE BALANCE. Management does not care that you have a life outside...

    Advice to Management

    IT employees need the flexibility you once gave us. We have ZERO WORK LIFE BALANCE. Over time, the best and brightest WILL LEAVE ATT. My coworkers and I are all just marking time. Waiting for the surplus and package- at which time we will take our talents elsewhere. ATT will be left only with the employees on the right side of the bell curve who are nowhere approaching top Talent if they don’t change the culture...
