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

    Pros

    at&t does a good job of keeping up with current technologies. They do not break ground but are quick to follow. This gives the technology time to mature and reduces churn. They pay well, and benefits are outstanding. Work hours are generally pretty flexible.

    Cons

    good ideas are hard to implement.

    Advice to Management

    Connecting people is ultimately improving the human experience by breaking down barriers, teaching people about each other and the world. Many younger people need a mission besides making money

    Pros

    AT&T has a great culture about caring for employees at all levels, by my experience, especially when compared to some of the current cutthroat tactics elsewhere. Good opportunities for advancement if you work hard and stick with it, but it does need commitment, patience, and demonstrated good performance. You can't get by just slacking. Strong culture of inclusion and diversity. Excellent compensation and benefits...

    Cons

    Like any business, especially publicly traded, costs including labor are constantly optimized, which does lead to some layoffs and use of low-cost countries. However, the company treats employees very fairly and with dignity in the process when layoffs are necessary, with reasonable compensation, and tries to find another opportunity for them. Heavy emphasis on training and education, which is good, but not all requirements...

    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...
