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

    Pros

    None. Quitting is no longer an option as the new regime has made all of their vendors sign a document saying they will not hire any ATC employees for at least a year after they quit. This means if you work in telecom, no one that does business with ATC, can hire you, so where are you going to go??? Your option is to get yourself fired to get around this, but who wants to do that? This is how ATC now does business, which is despicable. Can you say sour grapes?

    Cons

    See above. Can't leave this horrible company. Management from Director level and above is worthless. There's a reason why the largest carrier in the USA refuses to do business with this company any more.

    Also, ask around and see how many higher level positions have left in the last 6 months. That should tell you all you need to know. For those who are stuck and can't leave, I feel bad for you. If you are considering a move here, don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesn't listen, so why bother. My advice to the Board is to fire from the President on down to most of the directors.

    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!
