    I have been working at AT&T full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was an RSC in a retail location for 6 years and loved the money but was getting burned out and needed a change. I you work hard and perform and play a few political games your managers will help get you promoted. I am now an account manager for our national retail accounts like best buy walmart radio shack..ect. I have an amazing team of dedicated coworkers and an awesome boss. I have a very flexible schedule and now I enjoy more time with family and friends.

    Cons

    The only thing about this job that I would say is a con is your always on call, phone has to be answered no matter what. Although this is rare I have had to leave dinner, church social functions to take a call and fix issues. Its part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Better training on internal systems
