Good Company - Growing pains, US Tower management plan is a mystery

Engineering Manager (Current Employee)
Cary, NC

I have been working at American Tower full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood Compensation and benefits, Corporate (Boston/International) management is top notch

ConsUS Tower management (Woburn) offers little to no advancement for existing talent. Sr. Management has made the decision to go external for almost every avalaible Mid to Sr. level management position over the past 2 years. Acheiving promotion or hire is often not based on talent or capability, but rather who you know in management and where you came from prior to AMT. Multiple Sr. Level managers/executives are in the wrong job or are lacking due to legacy employment or buddy system. Good people are held back or overlooked, average or external talent is promoted, both often for the wrong reasons.

Advice to Senior ManagementHarvest your internal talent before it leaves for the competioin. Get the right Executive managment in place.
