I work for ATT (wireless sales.) I can say that It does feel like we work for the aforementioned companies above like Goldman and Lehman Bros.
Between arbitrary sales pressure, constant complaints about our network and unenthusiastic corporate bosses I feel hopeless.
For instance, did you know that att corporate raised sales goals during christmas and iphone launches to protect themselves from paying us too much?
We get paid according to how close we get to our total monthly goals. If you exceed the goals you get paid more; something I feel is fair on months like December and June (iphone launch) when we have to deal with all the extra bullshit.
Hearing a speech from Luke Wilson is nice but It doesn't really mean anything. I'd rather hear it from someone who isnt getting paid
quote: i work for the at&t can attest that morale is in the toilet. we do our best to take each day as it comes, but honestly its not the actual job or dealing with you and all customers, its middle to upper management, their greed, and somewhat high expectations and the demand that is placed on us
