I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great pay, benefits and training. I've had the opportunity to learn a lot about telecom, consultative sales, and leadership. Have developed very strong relationships with fellow colleagues.

Cons

It is such a huge company that you can feel like you don't matter. Hard to understand the decision making process at the top, because you have such little involvement. Can lead to employees feeling powerless and resentful. Hard to feel like you can control much. The higher leadership team can feel inaccessible to the employees.

Advice to Management

Please make the employees feel more valued. Pay sales people for their hard work, don't change the comp plan half way through the year and decide to not pay for sales that were originally included in the plan.

    I worked at AT&T full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, at the forefront of technology, excellent training in the retail portion of the company.

    Cons

    Hours in retail (never really a pro for family life), their view on education over experience needs to be revisited. People with degrees in completely unrelated fields are given $60k a year jobs without any previous retail sales or management experience just because they have a degree.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit the college hire in program. Don't take jobs that candidates with years of company and industry experience would qualify and excel at and give them to people who have a degree in let's say journalism or a foreign language. Make them have a degree in something that would be relevant to the position they are being hired for; management, business admin, marketing, human resources, etc.
