Company Culture

The company culture is save money

Support from management

Depends who your manager is and what project you are on.

Teamwork

The teams are the only thing keeping AT&T going, smart people making small miracles happen

Freedom to work independently

Micro managers are abundant

Internal Communication

There is no clear vision of the future, all decisions are last minute

Career Development

Lots of training, they expect you to move into different jobs throughout your career

Office / Work Environment

no direction. no motivation. in constant fear of layoffs

Work-Life Balance

the only time AT&T cares about work balance is when you need to use your vacation time because they don't want you to carry it over to the next year

Company Image

Top 100 places to work....I don't see how

Job Security

Too many layoffs

Inclusive / Diverse

but not at the top

Company Culture

Not much of a company culture. If you are not from India, you might feel somewhat on the outside.

Support from management

It's there, but best not ask too many questions about anything technically challenging because you might not get any answers because management doesn't know also.

Teamwork

Never sensed much teamwork at all. Every man for himself. Like elementary school kids competing over the only peanut butter sandwich in existence.

Freedom to work independently

Freedom to work independently with a lot of constraints.

Internal Communication

Difficult to communicate with people whose grasp of the English language is poor, sometimes bizarre. Longer-term workers who do speak English as native language are burned-out zombies and don't talk much.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older colleagues are treated like faltering geriatric patients by some. Foreign contractors often are suspicious of older American workers, thinking that they are planted "spies" to keep tabs on their work activities.

Career Development

Management rarely consults with contract workers as to what project is happening next. Contractors are never informed of being shifted to a new work group or project until the last minute. Contracts are extended at the whim of AT&T without discussing details with contractors.

Overall compensation for your work

Pays well, but sweatshop environment ruins just about everything else.

Office / Work Environment

It's okay, but a somewhat stark, cold environment. Orientation/on-boarding process is usually done in large groups (averaging 12 or more people) where that group is herded around the AT&T campus like cattle on their first day.

Work-Life Balance

Folks rarely work over 8 hours per day, but the huge amount of work that is piled-on for a period of one week is equal to what should be accomplished by 3 or 4 workers & not good for a one person's well-being.

Company Image

When DirecTV was taken over by AT&T, some long-term employees said that everything started to go downhill. People are not happy.

Job Security

Never know what is going to happen from one day to the next.

Workplace Safety

I've seen multiple OSHA violations which would easily cause electrical fires. It is so rampant, that it is amazing they are not shut-down for those violations.

Challenging Work

Challenging work is better than average. The only saving grace.

What I like about the company

Wages

What I dislike about the company

Impersonal, humorless and workers are treated as easily disposable assets.

AT&T is the worst place I have ever worked. Never before have I felt like just a number. They don't care about employees
