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

Pros

The pay is fantastic if for Sales Associates. Union job means you only work 37.5 hrs a week or you get time and 1/2.

Cons

There haven't been any new Sales Associates in years. Now they only hire Sales Consultants. Way less pay. The salary is low, with potential for big payout, except for the 'qualifers'. If you miss one unit of something it can cost you thousands in commissions.

Advice to Management

Learn to appreciate your people instead of treating them like convicts. The guilty until proven innocent approach doesn't work. There is a culture of constantly trying to find fault with everything we do. Guess what? If you look hard enough you will always find it. Perfection is an ideal that can't be upheld.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    typical finance internship, but paid vacations, got 3 vacation days in my 10 weeks, and also was treated like a salaried employee.

    Cons

    massive company, hard to get the big picture. also working in Chicago is not that great, especially the commute sucks.

    Pros

    Compensation is great compared to what other companies offer. Company seems to be structured very well.

    Cons

    Advancement is difficult, given that employees keep their jobs for a good portion of their career, mostly based on the high rate of compensation. People have to die in order for someone else to advance. It's very easy to become complacent, until the company decides to make VERY major departmental changes to staff and crew.
