I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Potential to make a decent living.

Cons

Absolutely no work/life balance. Comp plan changes require you to sell more, but get paid less money, but senior management will try to spin it to make it sound like its a positive change. Teird comp plan structure makes it nearly impossible to accelerate in their compensation plans.

Advice to Management

Stop micromanaging.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Telecommuting for IT is getting really commonplace, which is great. Salary and bonus are doing well also.

    Cons

    Contingency Planning! If assigned, when one of the unions goes on strike, have to be at assignment (possibly thousands of miles away) within 24 hours and be ready to work 12 hour days, 6 days a week, and only get to visit home every 3 - 4 weeks. Have spent the last year having to be ready and possibly forfeit vacations because of CP12. Training is a joke.

    One other... in IT, some applications get beat up for being a week late on a release, while other applications are 2 years late and get a pass. It gets old...

    Advice to Management

    Work with managers to best cover possible strikes without treating them as your slaves.
