Bellwether of American business, a great place to work.

Network Engineer (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than a year

ProsHighly intelligent people, expeditious recruiting process, open door management policy, and a clearly disseminated corporate goal handed down from the top. We all know why we are here, and what we are contributing to. I'd never consider working anywhere else after being here.

Cons14th? largest corporation in America. The chain of command can get a little long sometimes.

Advice to Senior ManagementReally appreciate all the effective communication from Randall and everyone else. You get loyalty from all of us because of the way we are treated. Thank you for making this an exciting place to work. The product discounts are really nice, too.

Great Opportunity for growth

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee)
Jefferson City, MO (US)

ConsThe hours of operation are very difficult especially if you have a family.

ProsGood management, rewarding. They take care of their employees. Advancement from within.

Advice to Senior Managementstay on top of what makes each individual the best they can be. It's kind of a difficult situation, but each person is an individual, and each person works to their potential in a different way. It's like being a coach, which I have done for 20 plus years, you find how to get the best out of each individual , for what's' best for him/her, which makes it best for the whole team
