Pros: great benefits, earning potential, working outdoors, for a great company

A typical day at at&t begins with and ends with providing outstanding customer service. The work is mentally stimulating and enhances problem solving skills. I have learned a tremendous amount about information technology and have developed skills in this field. Co-workers are great and eager to assist in helping to become a great technician. The hardest – more... part of the job can be satisfying customers who have issues that are out of your control in a seamless manner. The most enjoyable parts of the job are the people we meet and work with, and the information technology skills that are acquired in the process. – less

Pros: great management
Cons: uncertainty about what the future holds for the company
I' ve met some of the best people ever working at AT&T! Opportunity for advancement is unpredictable. The company has undergone changes with the recent purchase in April 2011. The whisper is that we are about to undergo more changes. I have learned a lot about digital advertising, I loved my manager in Premier Sales and the best part of the day is the – more... interaction I have with my colleagues. The management really wants you to succeed. I feel it and it makes going to work not so laborious. – less
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Atlanta, Ga – September 9, 2014
Pros: family oriented environment
Cons: most weeks worked 6 days
It was fun and exciting working with Breed International, an AT&T Solution provider. I enjoyed working closely with the CEO and Owner of the company. I felt like I learned a lot from him and gained a mentor. I enjoy working with smaller companies because my opinions and ideas can be acknowledged versus following a set company policy, but anyway it works – more... to make the company successful I am will to follow. – less

Been with at&t for 12 years through all its transitions from Pac Bell,SBC, then at&t and I have to say it's been a good place to work as far as the benefits and wages. Super stressfull with all the micromanaging and monitoring but they pay great!
Premises Technician (Former Employee), Miami, FL – September 8, 2014
Pros: great benefits, great advancement
Cons: no time for yourself
At&t is a great company to make a career in. Lots of opportunities for advancement and great benefits. Co workers are always there to help. You become part of a brotherhood. You get to meet a lot of different people everyday. The only complaint I would have about the job is that its a very time consuming job. You barely have any time for yourself if – more... there is alot of work, which is good for making money, but not good if you have a family. – less
SALES CONSULTANT FOR BUSINESS SOLUTIONS (Former Employee), Hoffman Estates, IL – September 8, 2014
To accept this position was career suicide. It was too far of a drive, dayin and day out, an hour and thirty minute drive on the toll (I-294 to I-290 to I-90) is not a good way to spend your day for that compensation.

Pros: no amount of great base pay makes this job worth it.
Cons: see my review
