I mean, are they trying to do anything for their employees and for this company, except for themselves? Management seems so clueless that it hurts. Everything they do is bad. I no longer remember their last good move, and I hope to get out of here... — read more

From my experience it wasn't easy to get a job with ATT on resume. Does it seem to you that many companies when they see ATT on resume have a prejudice that it is a slow, unmotivated worker who does a very sloppy job? I hope it’s just some of my... — read more

Does T still award trips to top performing sales folks? I went on some nice trips back in the day. Just curious if they have cut those as well.
He gets it, he hears it, but the expectations have changed and individuals will decide how to react. What he neglected to say is that management changed the expectations, employees didn't and are not happy about the changes. And so he drones on... — read more
I show up, clock in - and that’s it. The effort I put in at work is minimal at best. Why should I give my all and then some? There are ZERO damns given on both sides. The energy I should be using on my job I am instead putting towards getting another... — read more
