Pros

You work with AT&T, which will use the latest technology available.
There is a lot of professional people that you can exchange knowledge with.
Resources for testing equipment are good.

Cons

Being a contractor limit people for balancing professional and personal life.
You don't get the stability that AT&T offers to the full time employees.
Salary is below the average in the market for fully qualified professionals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Due to the stability that AT&T offers, most of the management will care to comply only with their job. Those who do more than their share are the great people in the company, however those are the minority of people.

    I worked at AT&T

    Pros

    One of the company with the most complete solutions portfolio with great learning opportunities provided you have the time to spare!

    Cons

    This is a giant dinosaur with departments compartmentalised within their own silos and processes. Lack of ownership and lack of collaboration often leads to customer dissatisfaction...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve collaboration between departments! Flatten the organisation... This is one of the most hierachical organisation where customer issues that transcend more than one departments often get lost due to lack of ownership!

    Pros

    Some opportunity for growth if you are looking for a long-term career with cell phones. In corporate AT&T the benefits are good and vacation time is pretty generous.

    Cons

    Management is very strict and restricted on what they can do. It is hard to escalate issues and get them resolved in a timely manner. Customer service lines are never helpful and make the job much harder than it has to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like dirt.
