    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The vendor products and services are awesome, new, forward thinking and offer training and strong support.

    You receive a smartphone from last season, a clunky laptop and an iPad for note taking. Don't expect to maintain connection as your equipment will loose it's signal frequently.

    Semi-flexible with time, only if you are favored by management.

    Very nice work place for women who seek to work in the corporate world and quick promotions.

    Great for a first job or desperate job seeker for a career in sales.

    Cons

    The company's core solutions are smartphones, tablets and the network, NOT APPLICATIONS. You would be better off working for the vendor.

    Account Managers are basically outside Retail Reps in suits with high stress.

    Prepare for your job to be in jeopardy every winter season as sales decline, quotas rise.
    Also prepare to spend hours, days, weeks maybe even months on non-sales activities to which you are not paid on. All of the systems are outdated and have single functionality: one does this, another does that, go here to get this and there to get that and put the puzzle together.

    Trainings inside the company are clustered, unorganized, very time consuming and majority are web based.

    Do not expect a lot of support to help you succeed, soon as you present a challenging to management or the team you may as well start your search for a new job.

    99% of this workforce turnover every year as everyone realizes the company structure: Top Heavy, Political, Bureaucratic, and hidden discriminatory practices. (if you are not promoted within a year, find another job)

    1% of this company receive rewards for participating in unethical behavior and getting away with it, receive the best modules and are handed grand opportunities from management to help them meet their quotas.

    Expect constant change in pay structure to receive less earnings. Retail Reps make just as much in store with less effort.

    If you have a strong work ethic and a high sense of integrity, this is not the company for you. Also, absolutely forget about work-life balance or advancing your skills.

    Advice to Management

    Here is what we want:
    Minimum politics
    Fair opportunities
    Friendlier management
    Family orientation
    More than sales
