Pros

For Young Professionals AT&T is a great place to jumpstart your career. The training program for college hires is hands down one of the most intense in the industry.

Cons

Unable to retain employees specifically college hires because they are underpaid. The salary at AT&T is not at all competitive with the market or industry especially for the Generatin Y-ers.

Advice to Management

Retain the amazing talent you have invested so much in developing. Streamline everything internally.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Enjoy the outside work and providing good service to customer. Pay is OK but has been flat for years.

    Cons

    Under BellSouth they cared about the customer and employee now we are just human robots making the numbers. The place is micro managed but management does not know what is really going on. Lower level management indicate upper management does not trust craft. There does not appear to be good communications across departments. The tech with the job has to solve most problems that come up across departments. The culture and values in the past were great now it is just make the crazy numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Something is wrong when a crew without a manager for months has better numbers then with a manager. Keep up the numbers game which everybody games and you are going to run off your best techs. Let 1st and 2nd line managers manage.

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

    Pros

    Full time employees work a lot of hours, but the compensation is great! You can also work your way up the ladder if you are a great salesman! Training is also fun, because it's paid and you meet some really great people....also you can't beat the employee phone plan and the insurance is good too!!

    Cons

    Work lots of hours, high expectations in sales, and you are on your feet for a while....

    Advice to Management

    Higher cooler people! Get rid of or promote store manager that have not been a salesman in the last 4 or 5 years, they are too out of touch with reality.
