    I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company is focused on providing the best quality services for their customers (I was in Business Services). The compensation is good, benefits remain pretty strong, and it's certainly a stable company.

    Cons

    The drive to only provide the "best" services to their customers is often at the expense of speed to market, and responsiveness to customer needs. Nothing gets produced without a *lot* of review and oversight, and sometimes the apparent whims of very senior leadership can knock a formerly important project right off the RADAR, replaced with a MUST DO NOW idea.

    Advice to Management

    Never sacrifice the "Good," searching for Perfect. In many areas of the business, Customers now expect an iterative (and therefore sometimes imperfect) product cycle.

    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...
