    Pros

    You can make great commissions and the pay is not too bad

    Cons

    Stressful stressful stressful... It's all about meeting your quotas and getting more out of the sale. If sales is not for you, then this is not for you either.

    Advice to Management

    Management at the store I was located at seemed to care, but I'm sure they were pressured by THEIR managers to produce. I would say cut back a little on the quotas, but not sure that is ever going to happen.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job Stability is pretty good but the quality of those who are left really suffers, Salaries are high, which tends to keep a lot of dead wood around

    Cons

    Too many mandatory "to-do's" and very poor performance measurement. Salaries are too high for upper management and there are far too many Executive Director levels and above. The company is a case study in upper management bloat and top-down command-level management. Pretty archaic in this day and age.

    Advice to Management

    Lengthen your time horizon and train employees. It's ludicrous to think that with changing technology the company cannot provide better training to employees. Additionally, measure people on what is important, not what is easy. The culture is stifling and there is no opportunity for real advancement. The good, younger, new employees will leave as soon as a better offer comes along. It is really sad to see how the company has taken a nose dive over (especially) the last 5 years. Putting legacy AT&T Business Marketing and Operations in charge was an incredible mistake; they took AT&T into the gutter before SBC bought them and will do the same with the former LECs that now make up AT&T.
