    I have been working at AT&T

    Pros

    AT&T is a great place to work if you don't mind working over the telephone with the majority of your co-workers. People are generally nice, but you don't form a relationship with your co-workers because you are mostly working over the phone with them. You are constantly surrounded by intelligent people who can really help to develop your professional career.

    Cons

    Too much overhead, morale is low during these hard economic times. The corporate environment does not allow for fast decisions. Projects that should take only a few weeks end up being dragged out over the course of 6 months to a year or longer.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and implement the changes they are requesting. Find a better balance between business need and employee satisfaction.

    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...
