Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Training, benefits, and the technology.

Cons

Reactionary political environment where achievement is mostly based on who you know. Payment of commissions is the equivalent of a Ponzi scheme. A sales director actually took pride in addressing team and stating "I can't get you your commissions". Now that's motivating.

Advice to Management

Stop playing games with employees' pay. Sales people are incentivized to sell more which effects the company's bottom line; allow them to do the job.
