    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work from home flexibility. Instead of wasting time in commuting, it was more efficient and effective to work from home and got more work done as a result. Cloud based employee profile allowed for BYOD (bring your own device) - Never lost anything or had to deal with laptop lease roll overs. Again, incredibly efficient way to handle something very basic.

    Cons

    Too inundated with politics. Unprofessional employees who yell at people (contractors) on phone calls or have babies screaming in the background (as they were abusing the WFH policy). Too much abuse by fellow employees on WFH policy...etc. Too little oversight on COBC by employees.

    Advice to Management

    Better employee selection. What I observed on conference calls for one is just shocking as professionalism didn't seem to exist.

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

    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...
