    Pros

    Great environment, great offices around the world, good work experience, good salaries, you can travel around the world for projects or meeting other colleagues.

    Competitive benefits; great comp and bonus structure; culture is great and work is very interesting. Management is listening and really open to suggestion

    Cons

    Nothing really bad here. It is a great company to work for. Very busy place so if you are looking for a boring 9 to 5 job, you should probably look somewhere else

    I have been working at American Tower full-time

    Pros

    There's something new to learn everyday at American Tower. The environment is dynamic and fast-paced, providing constant opportunity for personal growth and career development. Teams across all departments are always willing to answer questions, and the way teams work cross-functionally provides a lot of insight to the company and telecom/wireless/real estate industry.

    It's great to be a part of such a large industry player and be able to make an impact every day.

    Cons

    It's a work hard, play hard environment, requiring full-time commitment to your job. However, this is only really a "con" if you're dissatisfied or unwilling to give 110% to your career.

    Advice to Management

    Management is as available as management can be for such a large corporation. I've never had any negative experiences.

    Pros

    High energy, lots of opportunities, great leadership, amazing business model, best in class industry leader, would be crazy to go anywhere else, a destination.

    Pros

    A fast paced, strong financial company, with a high number of internal promotions occurring every year. Great peers and colleagues, who are honest, ethical and smart!

    Cons

    A byproduct of the growth and patchwork over the years has led to one too many systems. The systems are challenging to navigate for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at salaries of some of the more valuable and critical lower level roles - might be time for an adjustment.

    More training.
