    I have been working at AT&T

    Pros

    AT&T likes to think it's a forward thinking company. In some ways it is, and some ways it's absolutely not. The Pros to working for AT&T are that they do have decent benefits - although they've been reduced in recent years, just like most major companies.

    Cons

    The Cons are that the company doesn't pay well for non-retail jobs. In fact, as a trainer, I make less than the majority of the people I'm training - even if they are there on day one! Additionally, compensation is so spreadout (in my position, ranging from $39K - $99K in my market and similar markets) that it creates animosity.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate consistently.

    I have been working at AT&T part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This is a great place to work especially being fresh into sales. The company offers competitive hourly pay starting at 14 an hour plus commission.

    Cons

    constantly questioned by management about every transaction and receiving disciplinary actions if you do not follow the particular sales process appointed by management

    Advice to Management

    great in store management, terrible upper level management

    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 20 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...

    Advice to Management

    IT employees need the flexibility you once gave us. We have ZERO WORK LIFE BALANCE. Over time, the best and brightest WILL LEAVE ATT. My coworkers and I are all just marking time. Waiting for the surplus and package- at which time we will take our talents elsewhere. ATT will be left only with the employees on the right side of the bell curve who are nowhere approaching top Talent if they don’t change the culture...
