I worked for AT&T (in its various lives as BellSouth, etc) for 38 years and retired early 2014 because I had watched the company consolidate, and even set "permanent" offices, only to change their mind within a year and do around round of closures.

The stories we were told just go to be too much, and when they started obviously promoting some of the worst workers in the office, I had had enough.

I decided that if I didn't get out of there I might just go postal, so it might actually be in everybody's best interest, including mine if I retired. It seems that most corporations seem to have "learned" the art of talking out of both sides of their mouths.
