Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at AT&T

ProsNot super strict on time. As long as the work gets done, no issues with leaving early on a Friday or anything of that nature.

ConsBig business mentality. Some of the systems in place take forever to get things done, but that is to be expected with a company this big.

One word - moving

AT&T Wire Technician (Former Employee)
Marietta, GA (US)

I worked at AT&T full-time for more than a year

ProsDays go by very quickly.

ConsDays go by very quickly.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement was good, however, the upper level treatment of management seemed disconcerting at times. Maybe allow freer daily work reporting structure for more successful "newbie" managers. Excellent opportunity for advancement, however, maybe look away from union / non-union restricting. Also, kudos on the consensus approach to innovation. Overall, great company!

AT&T is definitely an 800 pound gorilla in Telecom

Account Manager II (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 3 years

ProsName Recognition is always nice. Financial stability is always there. Pension with a matching 401k is great. Medical benefits are alright, but keep getting more and more expensive each year.

ConsThere isn't really anything that they don't provide, except for if it is too small of a deal. Lots of number reporting

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
