Featured Review
"Great Company"Aug 17, 2021

Current Employee - Sales Executive

I have been working at AT&T full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good benefits and established operations. Wide reaching company that allows you to transfer to a new state if needed. EVERYONE uses internet and cell phones.

Cons

If you're in sales, this can be a difficult segment to work in for growth. The market is saturated as far as cell phone and internet use so a sales environment depends on you being able to convince... someone else that your service is better and worth the effort of switching.

Advice to Management

Make sure you promote the right people to the right positions.

"Job"Sep 15, 2021

Current Employee - Senior Analyst

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

Pros

Flexible hours and good benefits

Cons

Salary below market, "raises" are basically COL adjustments, and sometimes they care more about quantity rather than quality

Advice to Management

Stocks are nice, but it'd be better to have bigger raises for high performers.
