AT&T stands for "At This Time" - I learned to be flexible in the face of change and value the skills I had to develop

I worked at AT&T

Pros

The benefits were exceptionally good (medical, dental, vision, mental health, reimbursment accts, and legal); very ethnically diverse workforce, variety of job functions available to more ambitious, responsible workers.

Cons

No transfer within the company for workers from the "old AT&T"; very little opportunity for promotion, constant threat of lay-offs undermined morale, and the union (@ least our local) often picked the wrong battles and frequently conspired with managment @ the expense of the workers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way around the union to reward/promote employee performance over seniority; invest time and thought into promoting center morale

    Pros

    Can be a fun place to work most of the time. I recommend working at at&t to anybody who can handle a more than moderate amount of pressure and has a thirst for technology. Compensation is more than what most americans make by far. You get awesome health care and there is plenty of room to move up in the company.

    Cons

    There are some mean people out there. Sometimes the company doesn't feel like it has your back as much as they have the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bend over backwards for your reps and always have their backs no matter what. Your money is made off of what THEY do not what YOU do.

    Pros

    great benefits. health, vacations, and 401k. if you work hard and network you can advance in the company pretty quickly.

    Cons

    change compensation plans to much. Lack of training, and the training that is given is not up to par, and is done to quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give sales department realistic expectations, and a sales quota in January, not in June. this way your sales team gets paid for their work.
