    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, lots of different technical areas in which to work. Company has a good policy/attitude towards lateral moves between groups. Their telecommuting policy is quite good. People in work groups can be spread across several states - there's generally no pressure to have groups located in one geographical area.

    Cons

    This is a big company (currently #11 in the Forbes 500), so there's the expected bureaucracy. There is a ton of required internal (mostly web-based) training.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace a more modern "web" attitude. Use more open source, rather than proprietary software.
