Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"AT&T is in a very tight situation with its unions and its profit performance. Interview with a focus on how to build profits structures throughout. Creativity is of minor interest, although much needed at AT&T."
What don't you like about working at BellSouth?
"It was weak in its projection of a major business entity outside of its narrow area of influence, thus became an easy target to AT&T, a tarnished brand with little to offer in terms management and creative leadership guided by a rational profit strategy."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"It does not exist, but it should have projected itself better nationally; showing its strength and value, while protecting one of its major brands (shared with SBC), Cingular. Based on going research at BellSouth, it was clear that Cingular and BellSouth were stronger brands than SBC and AT&T."
