Advice to Management

If this division were a sandwich, I would say that the bread (top and bottom) is good. Everything in between needs to be replaced with new, and unspoiled meat that is truly open to the changes that the company is trying to make. Management, especially middle levels of management are valuable, but if you're trying to win the super bowl, then you have to know when to move on and start drafting newer and younger rookies to run your team.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Good opportunities for lateral movement.
    -Great pay, steady/stable industry.
    -Decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    -Culture needs some serious help. People don't care about each other, and will carelessly throw each other under the bus if needed to save face. Teams members are cordial to one another other, but teams against teams are highly competitive and territorial.
    -Zero opportunities to advance to higher levels of the organization. Make sure you get hired at a satisfactory level - cuz you probably won't move to a higher level (unless you have a cut throat personality).
    -Not a super friendly place for female leaders. Need to take a very aggressive stance to get noticed.
    -Leadership is not very involved in the details, they just want it done, or will point blame without inspecting what actually took place.

    Advice to Management

    -Pay attention, get to know people in the organization.
    -Do some culture work (and care about it).
    -Help create opportunities for people. Generate career plans and follow them.
