The possibilty of working from home because not being able to do so made it hard tk schedule time to drive to Atlanta for work.

Summer Intern

May - August 2017 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

The benefits the company provided, community with other interns, and the city.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been given more challenging work.

Advice

Take all the opportunities you can to learn about business and the company--there are so many "extra" experiences that defined how much I was able to gain out of my time there. Also, I recommend selecting the Dallas HQ location for your first rotation with them.

Student Technical Intern

May 2017 • Alpharetta, GA

What I liked

I got a lot of on-hands experience. AT&T is a great place to work with nice, helpful people. I had a great experience.

What I wish was different

My particular assignment didn't have any other interns on my team with me, so I wish I could've gotten more community with people my own age.

Advice

Work hard and take initiative. If you show that you want to learn, people will respond well and show you everything you need to know.

Engineering and Operations Intern

May - August 2017 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

I enjoyed how helpful all of the other employees at the company were, and how welcoming my supervisor and team were. I loved the office workspace that was open and encouraged moving around and common areas rather than sitting at a cubicle. I also enjoyed how many other interns there were in my building, whom I was able to form lasting friendships with. Also, I enjoyed all of the extra activities AT&T provided us. Every few weeks was a planned intern event, where we got to play Top Golf, tour a data center, tour a football stadium, and rode along with an AT&T field technician - activities to get us out of the office.

What I wish was different

I wish AT&T matched our skills and majors up with out assigned team better. I am a computer science major, but my team did no coding at all, while other interns I talked to who had little coding experience were in charge of a lot of coding.

Advice

Use your time wisely at this internship. Take the opportunity to not only talk to members on your assigned team, but also other teams on other floors of the building. You can learn a lot from these people and gain a lot of insight.

Technology Development Program Intern

May - August 2017 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

Great mentoring, worthwhile projects, community involvement emphasized, intern events were a lot of fun

What I wish was different

Transition out of internship could be a little more efficient in terms of talking about steps for returning and getting paperwork done.

Advice

You won't know the answer to something if you won't ask, so talk to whoever you can and ask all the "stupid" questions you want because you can get away with that as an intern.

Software Development Intern

June - August 2017 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

I really enjoyed the friendly environment. Everyone was very easy to talk to and always open to answering questions. Being able to ask questions without hesitation helped to grow my confidence over the course of a summer.

What I wish was different

AT&T gave us executive mentors to work with on getting a deeper understanding of the company as a whole. I was pretty busy, but if I could go back and do it all over again, I would have loved to schedule more one-on-one time with my mentor.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions! No one expects you to know everything there is to know about your field, and internships are definitely a good time to learn about both the company and yourself.
