Pros

Stable industry, financially sound, good place for entry level exposure to the Business.

Cons

Inconsistent ethics regarding treatment of employees across and among business units and functions. Targeting of individuals for set up to fire. More firing of employees without significant reasons than I have ever seen. Management is allowed to bully and torment employees without recourse. Work / life balance is inconsistent. Employees appear to be punished like children for having a personal life or being out sick.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do a detailed assessment of the level of experience required in mature organizations in order to hold VP and Director level. The Business side seems to be fairly good with some inconsistencies. Management training in a more formalized way would be helpful in ensuring the core values, principles, and so forth that the leadership team aspires to foster within the company culture. In my opinion, the company has a long way to go to mature to be able to catch up to the rapid growth it has experienced.

    I worked at American Tower

    Pros

    It has a very friendly atmosphere. I loved working with the people there. It is a very flat organization and they respect all their employees. it is a very non hierarchical company.

    Cons

    the pay is not that great. It is a very sales driven organization and all the other departments are not given that much importance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve the pay scale and start spending more on strategies and how to get new business. it relies a lot in its old customers.
