Any idea how at&t is skirting the legal means of this new practice. The Reps are told they are not to say they are there to sell and their "in" initially is to say they are there to help them with their directv. In reality, they are really there to... — read more

We need executive management at the very top to be an outsider. Continuing to promote each other within the executive pool is bringing the same culture and process. Literally giving you a pig and slapping different lipstick on them AND saying this is... — read more

Note that due to large number of surpluses across the whole company, different teams/orgs will get noticed on different dates, starting at the earliest on 7/10 through mid August, possibly into september as well.
Anyone with a conscience can understand why NPS is low. AT&T's public plan is to get rid of 'value' customers and only focus on 'high quality' customers. AT&T is using data mining and artificial intelligence for the past few years to analyze exactly... — read more

Finally, somebody to point out something that should be blatantly obvious to everybody. With its 7% dividend and its $209 billion market cap, AT&T (NYSE:T) is widely considered a blue-chip investment. However, General Electric (NYSE:GE) investors... — read more
Thought I'd seen it all, then I was greeted with this. Branded face coverings Beginning next month, you'll be able to purchase AT&T branded face coverings. Our new company policy requires us to wear face coverings at work. And while standard face... — read more
Do you remember a town hall before the Warner acquisition when Randall was asked by a "lowly" employee about the wisdom of taking on so much debt to acquire a media company? He smirked and waved it off, saying, he "would never bet the farm" on an... — read more
