    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits in terms of health, dental, vision, HSA (will sometimes match up to $500) and 401k (6% match) Average time off starting around 18 days now. Employee discounts including DTV with HBO, cell service, ISP.

    Cons

    Wage stagnation. Promised promotions and progressions are withheld due to the most minor of technicalities that they caused. Cost of living increases are not adequate. Especially considering they love sending out emails to tell us how well they are doing. Bad policy decisions regarding employee location. New round of layoffs every 4-6 months typically, meaning either work cheap, be an exec, or get out.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees appropriately. Quit with the re-orgs and layoffs every few months. Stop rubbing the success we build you in our faces if you’re not going to share our generated wealth.

    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...
