    Pros

    Work-life balance is awesome, especially for those with kids. The benefits are pretty good and most departments seem to have a "family" like vibe. Everyone is very friendly and helpful when you have questions.

    Cons

    New employees from outside the company aren't shown a lot of respect when they first start. Upper management favors those who have been here for years and shuts down new ideas, especially from new employees. You're often told "this is how we've always done it" or "do it this way because I said so". It also doesn't feel like there is a lot of room for growth, many people have had the same titles for 5+ years with no promotion/opportunity to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the morale of your team and don't play favorites with team members. Employee engagement is a major concern of upper management, but when employees voice concerns/frustrations they usually aren't addressed.

    Pros

    Great work environment with a well balanced work to homelife ratio. Very fair environment based on gender. The company has a great ratio.

    Cons

    Things happen very slowly here. HR seems to take a while processing requests compared to other companies I have worked with.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the speed of things happening at the company. Processing internal requests, new jobs, upcoming jobs.

    Pros

    Everyone is so friendly! I have been working here since July 2015 and 95% of the people that I pass say hello and/or smile at you. Depending on what department, working here can be a lot of fun. I have met so many great people while working here, and have worked in 2 completely different roles. There is a TON of room for advancement. Not only that, but people who work here tend to stay here for a long time. Someone told me you don't ask people how long they've been with the company, you ask how many decades! There is also an onsite cafeteria with very fair prices, good food, and an even better staff!

    Cons

    Confusing internally because there are so many departments, but other than that nothing else.

    Pros

    Good people, trying to do good work. Dedication to employee training and trying to have everyone feel.like they are all on a Team.

    Cons

    The constant penny pinching makes moving forward difficult... Very rigid hierarchy, antiquated notions in some depts. and hard for women to succeed. Ultimately, the nonprofit structure that also has shades of govt and academia makes real sustained improvement nearly impossible. Not great for the long haul.

    Advice to Management

    End the boys club...it can't be the AT&T executive retirement club forever.

    Pros

    The benefits and vacation time are very good, most of the people are great to work with. They are flexible with schedules. On site training is also great.

    Cons

    Human Resource is never available to help yet they seem to have more employees than necessary. If you ever have a complaint about a supervisor/manager/director everybody knows it's a waste of time to file a legit complaint as NOTHING is ever done about it. Exit Interview - Useless. They are getting rid of a lot of employees in the last few years (new regime) don't offer a severance package that is consistent with others. Upper management of course benefits even if they haven't been there quite as long as others. They have found ways around "firing" people in order to not get sued. Hence all the lawyers hired in the last few years. Some Senior Staff Directors need to be looked at as they rely on their managers to do the work while they bide their time micro managing and doing admin work because they are not fluent in their own jobs. Huge misuse of funds - whether it be wasting time and money on a "new program/system" or the expense reports of volunteers/upper management. More work added to the plate every year, huge goals and no promotions, no money.

    Advice to Management

    If management listened that would be great. So many chiefs in that place getting paid the big bucks while the rest do all the work and get no credit or money. Stop humoring everyone and acting as if you care about the survey results, because obviously nothing changes. Instead we sit through 2 hour meetings addressing the items they want to address and never in the end changing anything.
