Difficult environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

I worked at American Tower full-time for more than 3 years

ProsOpportunity to dig in across a variety of a disciplines. Lots of hands on experience in accounting, finance and operations. The pace is fast, as the company builds out it's accounting and finance functions, there's plenty of opportunity to learn about the role of technology in accounting and the way that firms automate analysis as well as manage financial controls.

ConsThe company is going through change management as it develops it's US finance and accounting operations. This has led to some unsavory behaviors amongst management and a general perception that the ability to brownnose matters more than competence.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
