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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    They are hiring only temps and it is really hard to get hired. Poor Management. No training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When your company motto is say what you mean and do what you say. You really shouldn't lie to people.

    I have been working at American Tower full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Paid time off; Reimbursement for gym memberships; Great people to work with. Thats about it, as I really dont have a lot of great things to say about the company.

    Cons

    Management is the worse. They have no idea what they are doing. They micromanage all the time, and try to send emails over telling you what to do after you already got the email the first time, just so they feel like they are doing something, and managing. Guess they want to feel important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging and treat your peers with some respect, and not like they are below you.
