    Hard to beat the outlook

    CM/PM/SDM Manager (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsExcellent business plan / growth industry / management is grounded and cares about it's employees at all levels / good pay / good bonuses / excellent benefits / awesopme 401k matching (9%) / good vacation / lots of work away from the office

    ConsNot much upward advancement / work load / tons of reports and meetings with clients, contractors, and internally / tons of process and paperwork / and on the odd ocassion when an employee who doesnt fit gets hired, they will not get rid of them. You just have to work around them which can be a serious issue depending on your role and their role.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing a great job / keep an eye out for slackers and coat tail riders / evaluate your District Managers and Area Managers for competency / look into ways to correct or offset the flat nature of the organization since it's the only real downside to working here

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company - Difficult to Move Around

    Real Estate (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company to work for, great culture. Has a lot of resources for information and everyone is always willing to reach out and help.

    ConsHard to move from temp to FT. If you don't fit in with the "culture" it's hard to stay with the company.

    Crown Castle is an enjoyable place to work if you're not looking to move up.

    Tower Structural Analyst (Current Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    ProsThe company is very stable and the environment does encourage a very good work/life balance. Off-site meeting locations were great.

    ConsLack of opporunities to move up in the company. Favoritism was an issue. Managers are interested in your growth, however actual opportunities are not available.

    I enjoyed My Time There

    Real Estate (Former Employee)
    Chandler, AZ

    ProsFriendly staff; lots of learning opportunities; Decent pay; the annual company meetings are 2nd to none!; there is an 'open door' policy and they really abide by it; tons of tools for personal growth; professional environment; great bonuses.

    ConsMerit often plays no part in promotions;

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay closer attention to the managers. There were a small few that blatantly abused their authority in a very dispicable way and management turned a blind eye to it.

    Great work/life balance if you are in the field, pay could be better.

    Field Operations Tech (Current Employee)

    ProsTake home vehicle (all expenses paid by CCI), make your own hours/schedule, little oversight, overall good atmosphere.

    ConsPay is ok, could be better for the higher cost of living areas. Fairly flat in the personal advancement area; what I am doing now is what I will be doing when I retire.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider cost of living for certain areas. Great job otherwise!

    Great Culture and they truly care about their employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey stress ownership and accountability; most employees feel empowered. It's a fairly relaxed environment, but everyone gives 110%. The leadership team is approachable and makes an effort to travel to each of the Area's meetings.

    ConsIt's a flat organization with very few opportunities for advancement. Their turnover is very low which says a lot about their culture and values. It can be difficult to identify a career path.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue investing in your existing talent pool

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
