They really serve no purpose, They don’t track how many of their clients actually find jobs. In other words, they don’t measure whether or not they’re actually meeting their most basic goal, what I had learned about AT&T is that you’re dealing with poor leadership at all levels, and a dead-end wall for growth opportunities. The lack of transparency and feedback in this company is a common theme. I’d assume that you’ll need to look outside the organization when you want to move up. They’re indicating pretty loudly that they’re not going to move you into that role anytime soon, to-date they the elimination of vested employess continues with the pretense of job elimination bringing chaper wages and less benefits for all,

Career Monster, Indeed, are the best free resources do not easte you time with RiseSmart, was laid off and got this free. The advisor I got seemed crazy on the phone--got angry with me and claimed I was yelling at her. I'm getting a different advisor. They've sent me emails saying there are jobs in my area like what I'm looking for. They've all been the same website which posts other websites jobs. I put in my zip code and they have no way to narrow it down to how close I want them to be. Most jobs are in a city over 2 hours away one way--not a realistic commute at all. Then the vast majority of the job ads are several weeks to several months old. Then there are some that are still job ads for FL when I live in AZ. So I have thousands of jobs and the website has no way to narrow down the area or how old they are. There's no way I'm going to look at 20000 ads that are ridiculously old or ridiculously far away for maybe a few that might be interesting. So far I was doing better on my own and this is a waste of my time.
If you are impacted take advantage of all opportunities, tools & benefits offered. I'm working again and I appreciative of the transition package. Love my risesmart coach!
In our pricing team at global ordering they let go an ICB pricer, now they need 3 people to fill the void that created his dismissal, and no one tok responsibility when the issue was raised in one of the calls last month, incredible
It's not a dead-end wall, you just have to be good with the right people, when it comes to promotions and moving up, it's all about impressing who is in charge of filling the spot. Sure you can get jobs the old fashioned way, of actually being skilled and interviewed, but 9/10 times nepotism is what gets you in. It's ALL about who you know and what good gracies they have you on.
Every single move in this company, whether it was a retail move, a corporate move, a IT move, it's all been about who you know and having them put in a good word for you.
