Thread regarding AT&T layoffs

How far is ATT from your ideal workplace?

Here on this forum I have seen many stories of those who have left and whose lives have reportedly flourished since they moved out of here. However, I notice that people tend to either idealize or absolutely devalue things. Let's get real - there is no ideal company. I believe there are many companies that offer better pay or benefits, but I don't believe that there are ideal companies.

It is all how you look at it . If you have a work ethic you will just beat yourself up year after year. If you are a slug then T is a great place for you. Wallow with the other slugs and all is bliss.

It was far enough from ideal, that I left over a year ago. I have friends that are still there, and it’s so far from ideal for me that it still makes my blood boil when I hear their stories of cuts, being sold to directv, BS excuses for cost cutting etc. ATT is a joke of a workplace, and it’s corporate cancer at its finest.

"The amount of time perpetually disgruntled “cesspool” guy spends here on this forum, despite being so happy now working for the best and most profitable company in the world, is staggering."

Maybe he isn't impressed with all the masters degrees at att and yet the company still has a 20 dollar stock price and yet they still have to outsource all their cloud work with all the masters degree.

the intelligence at att is just so impressive and how they can correct graaammmmer.

The amount of time and credit you give him is staggering.

2 more observations about cesspool guy.

It's "are run like..." - not "are ran like..."

"our stock is like 20x higher than att..." Apple has the largest market capitalization of any company in the world. Apple market capitalization is almost 13 times the size of AT&T in terms of "stock" (i.e., market capitalization).

"Read some of the other company forums on the layoff. Similar topics and animosity towards the employer. Att probably isn't really so much worse than any other employer."

Constant layoffs, repeatedly reducing benefits including salary ranges, ignoring best talent for promotion in favor of untalented minorities, clueless Executives wasting money on stupid deals make AT&T one of the worst employers for long term employment

Out of region tech supervisors are clueless, don't care about the company, don't go on drive alongs, rarely show up to work and are just in it for a paycheck. They have no idea what their techs do or even what the organizational functions are. Its truly a pathetic state of affairs. Unfortunately, the 2nd level management team is no better. It's an Us vs. Them mentality and they're always out to get you or find a way to fire you. Seen it first hand!

I write my own check.
40 hrs or 80 hrs.
I don't care about anything else.
I show up every day to make $$$.
And I do.
It's not a social club, a therapist, a game room or a bowling league.
Not a replacement for what may be lacking in your life.
It's a job.
They don't care what you think, want, nor want to hear your ideas.
We are the buzzing of flies to them.
Once you understand that you'll be much better off.

It’s a great tech job , I was super lucky to find it. Insane pay & take home vehicle, tons of voluntary overtime. Maybe it’s just better out of region??

If you are the Ratty or the Stink - T is the ideal workplace that they can rob and pillage.

If you are a grunt, they your the ones the Ratty and Stink pound on with their toxic environment.
