Analysis of the companies.
There are a quite number of features that makes the two companies to stand out tall in the industry. Among the notable features that the two company manifest in their profile are location of the job, career advancement, corporate culture, salaries, and corporate structure and education requirements.
AT&T has a comprehensive career development and training that captures my interest. It helps it people to grow and develop their careers. The company was named the best (No.1 overall) for learning and development in corporate America (Chief Learning Officer Magazine, 2011). The company spent $34 million on tuition reimbursement for more than 11,900 employees. 100 % of its employees receive career development review and regular performance appraisal.

The company has manage to cultivate the culture of hardworking, co-operation and efficient communication among it management and the allover the main offices and branches.
The company is relying on divisional structure as product departmentalization. The company organizes itself around product-based divisions. The product base division is mange as a separate enter-prize. The corporate vice president heads each division and if the organization is large enough it is headed by the president. However, each division is usually has its own identity and operates as a relatively autonomous business under the larger corporate umbrella (Information Resources Management Association. International Conference, Mehdi Khosrowpour, 2000)
The company fundamentals as it culture are respect, excellence, integrity and accountability. It integrates such value into its business practice as a good corporate citizen. The company believes that long-term collaborative relationships among it members and the community fosters a shared, bilateral dialogue and general innovative idea that help the company to improve its decision making, product and service that benefit the customer (Mingat &Sosale, 2003).
Company wants to treat their job as a career. It give a continued support to their employees professional or personally. It aspires to further develop their employee’s standard by holding motivational meetings and holds informal affairs for their employees. The company wants improvement of company and workforce by train’s employees to be team-spirited to helped employees to see and overcome challenges (Rencher, 2002).
The two offer the best opportunities that suit both my qualification and my career development. I would to be part of excellent team and I believe on the fundamental value that the two companies practice. Another aspect that makes the future of the two companies to be promising is the industry that is characterized by innovation and creativity. The industry is becoming the base line for any success to all the business.
