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

    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.

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice
    Nice building
    Pay is sort of decent

    Cons

    If you're offered this company as a temporary worker, run away! Contractors with Crown Castle are an obvious second class citizen. Crown will have entire cookouts, and employee functions, and expect the temps to sit inside at their "desk" (we'll get to this...) while the regular employees go out and have a nice time.

    This company employs about 60% of their workforce as temps, AKA cheap labor. I would not expect to be hired on here full-time, no matter what your staffing agency tells you. Even if there is an opening in your department, the managers will not hire you.

    You may not even sit with your "team." While the rest of your team who are full time have nice new cubicles, the temps are stuffed onto a windowsill with no drawers. The temps may be all the way across the floor (or on another floor) from the rest of their team.

    Your manager may assign you a quota one day, and then chastise you for not making that quota the exact next day.

    For a company that prides itself on culture, the culture here is SERIOUSLY lacking. Crown has a wonderful way of making people feel like lesser professionals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in the temps you allow to work for you. If they're good enough to do the job, you should give them preference when a position opens, or don't waste anyones time.

    I have been working at Crown Castle International full-time (less than an 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.

    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.
