    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for lateral movement and training. There is a real push on now at AT&T for a skills transformation of its workforce from a telecommunications company to a cloud-based, network virtualized software company. Good benefits and salaries. If you are willing to relocate there are many opportunities in Texas, Georgia and New Jersey.

    Cons

    Upward mobility to Director or above, requires the ability and willingness to relocate and this could be a problem for some. Constant push to promote wonderful products that are often not available in employee locations. Many opportunities for those who have engineering (network or software) backgrounds, the company is moving away from project management, Six Sigma, Lean and other traditional disciplines, preferring to...

    Advice to Management

    Allow for more opportunities in California, outside of the Foundry in Palo Alto. Build out your best products (Gigapower, Digitial Life, U-Verse TV) in areas where your employees actually live, so that they can become the promoters of the business as you desire.

    I worked at AT&T full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    For how easy the job was, it was definitely worth the money. You also get to know the people you work with pretty well when working that close for that long.

    Cons

    repetitive days, ridiculous customers and silly sales goals.

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