AT&T has given me great career opportunities and is 100% behind my community involvement endeavors.

Talent Acquisition Manager (Current Employee)
Miami, FL (US)

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

ProsAdvance opportunities are made available to all employees. Benefits are top of the line. AT&T is truly dedicated to workforce diversity and inclusion. We get great discounts on most of our services. We have lots of tools and resources to assist us with self development.

ConsMost of our best management opportunities are centralized in Dallas, TX and Atlanta, GA. It is a bit of hindrance to not be mobile.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Instructional Designer - Contractor

Instructional Designer Contractor (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH (US)

I worked at AT&T as a contractor for more than a year

ProsFriendly team members. Great sense of family. I felt appreciated for what I do. My director went out of her way to let me take time off when I need to, then made up later.

ConsClients change their mind a lot at the last minute. No budget for raises or bonuses. Full time position is offered only when you are agree to move with your own expense.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaking contractors move to different cities in order to take on a full time positions with their own expense is not a good policy. The company will loose many talents.
