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

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits, ability to work on various IT projects. Good training on internal process and certifications. Well established tools and processes. Ability to work remotely.

    Cons

    Hard to move up within the company. Certifications like PMP is hard to sponsored by employer - need to achieve on your own. Raises are very low. Not the best commute.

    Advice to Management

    Better support of outside certifications for project managers - especially with PMI certifications.

    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...
