I worked at American Tower full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The folks at this company really like what they do. That's reflected in the financials. They are going through a complete overhaul so right now may be unstable, but on the whole it's a great company to showcase your skills.

Cons

If you are looking for the latest and greatest and most cutting edge technology, you won't find it here. With many legacy applications and too much work for the IT staff on hand, there is not a lot of room for brand new applications. The business has unreal expectations of IT given staffing levels. There are a lot of contractors so sometimes feels like the co has a revolving door.

Advice to Management

Assess who the key players are and make sure you hold onto them. Though the apps aren't the most cutting edge, there's some really great opportunities there for talented folks who just want the recognition for the work/ideas they contribute.

    Pros

    ATC is growing quickly and there is plenty of business opportunity. Great team-oriented environment, and Execs do listen, even if they don't make the changes you were hoping for. Excellent benefits, better than what I've had at much larger companies.

    Cons

    Pay is sub-standard, in my book, for sales people. It seems most of the sales people at ATC are previous Project Managers, and most are content with lower pay. The better sales people hit a cap on commissions that is way too low.

    I have been working at American Tower full-time

    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 Management

    actually listen to your employees.
