Five star employee rating

Current Employee - Senior Specialist- Technical Development Program in Schaumburg, IL


Flexibility, personal growth, and the ability to make a positive impact on the lives of people around me (even if they don't see it).


It can sometimes feel a little sluggish because the company is very large and this cannot perform changes as fast as one may desire.


We work hard and play even harder. Because with everything we do, #LifeAtATT is always an adventure.
