Former Employee - Senior Accountant in Atlanta, GA

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

Pros

High visibility to senior management and executives; HR presence; overall job security; good benefits package; opportunities to learn and travel; friendly people; casual office atmosphere.

Cons

Aggressive growth outpacing insufficient headcount; poor training; complacent departments; lack of communication; unstructured individual advancement; high turnover; outdated technology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more (competent) people to catch up with company growth; commit to an overall advancement/growth/promotion plan for individuals outlining reasonable expectations; shift from RSU compensation to higher take-home pay; go back to quarterly bonuses; hold departments/managers more accountable for communication, staff training, and overall performance.

    I worked at American Tower

    Pros

    You get to see into the world of cell towers and how they work.

    Cons

    Horrible management in IT. Very immature and politically motivated. Training is non-existent and management is more interested in making technical requirements documents look pretty instead of being complete and useful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shake up that IT department and get some real IT-experienced managers in there!
