Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

I have been working at American Tower full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits, interesting job opportunities, stong global company, lots of people who care about the company and its success. Great equity package. Senior leadership is ethical and has helped navigate the company through a difficult global economy. It's part of a global industry that is growing quickly.

Cons

It's growing fast and therefore to be successful, it takes someone who is fast-paced, able to change directions quickly (and without complaint), driven and able to build relationships quickly. It's fairly conservative so you need to look and act the part.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep in mind that growth puts a strain on employees everywhere. Encourage managers to be better empowerers of work/life balance. Recognize all levels of the organization for Company's success.

    Tremendous growth potential

    • Senior Management

    Current Employee - Vice President in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Vice President in Boston, MA

    I have been working at American Tower full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    High-growth, fast paced environment that is creating significant shareholder value and along the way plenty of career progression opportunity for those team members and employees that want to be part of an exciting industry. Between the skyrocketing demand for telecommunications and wireless, coupled with a great business strategy by incorporating as a Real Estate Investment Trust, there is really no end in sight for how successful this company can be.

    Cons

    The growing pains associated with an acquisitive company are challenging and the global organization structure sometimes lessens the efficiency and goal of rapid growth and delivery value to customers faster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think globally, structure centrally and prepare to scale for the next major wave of growth. Get the right players in the right roles with clear lines of accountability and authority to double the business in the next 3-5 years in a purposeful and strategic fashion that leverages the synergies across all markets and all talent..

    Pros

    well, there are few good people

    Cons

    Horrible Management, Low Pay, Extremely discouraging Work Place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management and CEO are fine, but junior management needs to learn how to treat their employees right (also don't pretend like you know everything when in fact you have scammed your way to management level and don't even know how to do a simple math).
