Pros

Great entry level company, but not the ideal company for anyone interested in longevity with a organization. If you want to bulid your wireless acumen, it is am excellent company to work for to help you launch to other companies within the wireless industry.

Cons

There are very few opportunities for advancement once you hit middle management. Merit increases are inadequate and upper management opportunities along with any type of career development either does not exist or is always a "work in progress".

    Pros

    very good benefits including payments for wellness, 401k match. The base pay is low, but the equity/stock is great, and can keep people there for many years. The company is very successful. Access to good training opportunities.

    Cons

    This is the most oppressive company I have ever worked. Nobody has autonomy and any decision needs to go through many many layers of approval - the company operates like they have 50,000 employees, while they only less than 3,000 employees. It's not uncommon to find bosses yelling at the employees. Anyone seriously looking to work at American Tower should be very careful to ask the right questions through the interview process. ATC is truly a "big brother" type of company. Hopefully ATC is making changes to address the massive turnover and issues they see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great benefits, great executive level leadership, not the greatest supervisory leadership.

    Pros

    Benefits are the best. Executive management seems to be trying to move in the right direction.

    Cons

    Too many people who are allowed to cut down co-workers instead of being concerned with doing a better job and equipping others. It seems as though it's even rewarded. Not enough training and not enough involvement from managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to getting people the tools they need to do a good job. Listen and ask all employees about why things are not going the way you would like them to go. You have wolves in sheeps clothing among you and they are going to make the company lose money in the long run by running off quality employees.
