    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    The call center is controlled by the local union war mongers. They breed discontent and hate and they protect employees who should not be there and sow fear to those who do. Sadly, because of the union, managers are actually paid less than what the representatives are and so any kind of career opportunity is actually a set back for most of them. The only benefit to being a manager is the love of helping other people...

    I worked at AT&T for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Supportive environment, opportunities to learn. Pay was good.

    Cons

    Difficult to be hired permanently. Not everyone in management was good. Lots of favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Be fair by hiring and promoting based on merit and not because the person is your friend or relative.

    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...
