    Pros

    Great leadership and mentorship experience, relaxed atmosphere. Good benefits/perks.
    Has a program for hiring military vets.
    Good exit opportunities, if it ever comes to that.

    Cons

    As the phone company, they are very tight with security. Many strict access protocols, network verification procedures, etc. Not really a con, but something to consider.
    Their HR process is inefficient, like many large companies.
    Also could benefit from more diversity (age, background, etc.). But they are trying to improve this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    AT&T Corporate could probably benefit from hiring more entry level employees for their technical contributions.

    I have been working at AT&T full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Team awards, 401k matching, educational benefits, opportunity to work for a leader in wireless and IPTV technologies.

    Cons

    Job security
    Yearly salary increases
    Lack of leadership and direction
    Salaries
    Glass ceiling at area manager level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to pre AT&T purchase leadership values. Reduce pro corporate propaganda. Get a more spirited leader to speak to the employees. Randall is a very smart and successful person, he just doesn't a presence like Ed did or Stankey has now. If you want a more hip corporate culture stop the talking and take action. Half of the company is stuck in 1970's mode the other half is trying to transform the culture by talking about it. Drop the massive hierarchy and flatten out.
