    Pros

    Crown Castle has great benefits and the work environment is filled with helpful people who are open to new ideas. Crown Castle is a company with it's priorities in order and where employees are encouraged to thrive. This company is very team oriented and management has been very supportive.

    Cons

    As with any new venture, Crown Castle is working diligently to be come the premier provider in the Small Cell and DAS industry. With that comes some growing pains, but they are easing daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Because the Small Cell division is growing so rapidly, communication between the teams is crucial to success. Focusing on opening that communication between installation and support would be very beneficial and keeping it open will help Crown Castle ensure it is the premier SCN/DAS provider in the industry.

    I have been working at Crown Castle International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Solid salary. Great culture, lots of company paid social events for employees. Lots of growth opportunities and the ability to move up in the company is there. Work-life balance is a priority. Great people to work with everyday. Employees are encouraged to make decisions and offer suggestions on how to improve the way the company operates. Company has seen tremendous growth in past 10 years and it appears like that trend will continue.

    Cons

    My training was very minimal, almost non-existant. Workload can get overwhelming at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on new employee training. A structured training program should be created that enables a new employee to succeed without having to teach themselves how to do the job. Other than that, keep up the great work. All and all, very happy with the management team from the top executives down to the middle managers.

    I have been working at Crown Castle International full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent 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

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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
