    I have been working at Crown Castle International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The salary is not only at the top of the range in all areas that they hire in but the raise and bonus structure is very transparent and fair. Amazing culture, lots of benefits (tops in the area) and there is a managerial perspective on fairness and career development that is rarely found at any organization.

    Cons

    This is a company with lots of high acheivers, relatively new people, and is going through an extreme growth phase. People that want consistency and the same thing day in and day out would be disappointed here.

    Pros

    I am having a lot of fun working here. They have great benefits and are really good to all the employees. If you need something, they will find a way to make it happen. Very friendly atmosphere and easy to fall into a grove. They like to eat a lot and laugh a lot! Really happy with my new job! This is a great company to work for!

    Cons

    They grew really quickly so the training is a bit rough. They went from a smaller/midsize company to a mid/large size company very quickly. This has cause the obvious stretch marks in the structure. Easy enough to handle though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of the upper management is very helpful and very kind. My first week here I was already going over my career path with my bosses, bosses, boss.

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

    Pros

    Crown Castle has a phenomenal leadership team, and a great environment/culture. The company is very family oriented. Crown Castle also compensates very well, has great benefits, and is generous with paid time off. The leadership team and stakeholders also put a major emphasis on setting their employees up for retirement.

    Cons

    With all of the great talent here, it can be hard to stand out! But this is not a bad thing! Surrounding yourself around talented professionals will only help better your own skills and knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep Crown Castle's environment & culture at the top of the list of importance.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits. Extremely friendly staff. Managment team that listens is fair and treats you like a human. Appreciative of you and what you do. They do not micro manage.

    Cons

    Starting out as a contractor at first. Not the best for us, but makes sense from a business stand point.

    Pros

    Great place to be challenged and learn a lot about the wireless industry.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room at the top. At some point you will need to look somewhere else if you have high ambition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a great job being transparent with the companies strategy to all employees.

    Pros

    Pays very well, great culture, emphasis on individual performance. Good work is recognized and rewarded by management. Employees are empowered to make decisions, positive environment.

    Cons

    Relatively flat organization. Not a ton of room to move up in most departments. There isn't a natural progression or job chain for most positions. Only way to advance is become a manager or move laterally to learn different parts of the company.

    I worked at Crown Castle International full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I felt very engaged with my decision to work for Crown Castle. I felt my work product was very good and I'm sure that the company benefited from our mutual work together. I would be very happy to work with them again in any capacity, especially since they have an office in Franklin TN, and I live down the road in Athens, TN. GO CROWN- Beat American Tower!!

    Cons

    none, except they closed my office in Mahwah, NJ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great people re-hire great people! I'm here in TN now.

    I have been working at Crown Castle International as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Access to an industry that is growing at an exponential rate. I was given the opportunity to shadow executives and explore the parts of the telecom industry I found fascinating. The company stresses the importance of going the extra mile and doing the work that is expected. Casual friday is a great way to end the week!

    Cons

    I would find it hard to name any cons of the company. Since the company is pubic a lot of reporting has to be done to the public.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!
