    I have been working at American Tower full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is pleasant only due to good teammates.

    Cons

    We were mis-informed about the positions we would be working. We are currently in the same dissatisfied boat under leadership of poor management with no sight of rescue, other than quitting. Boca / Cary "life and shift" team management seems to be chosen on the basis of brown-nosing, not on actual work experience or knowledge. Repetitive work, no chance for growth, daily annoyance of the new-to- the -area self-centered, competitive yet poor sport of a manager boasting mundane details about her life in order to gain acceptance from her reportees, although no one truly cares to hear it. Employees were warned early that we "haven't seen the worst of this manager yet" . Complete disregard for you if you are not like the manager. Leave quickly if you have the chance- there are better companies and better managers elsewhere to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Have some respect for those with intelligence and experience, instead of protecting those who have no experience or no clue about the work.

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Stock option is a plus

    Cons

    Not worth staying long too much favoritism. Could use a better wage raise program Stock and Bonuses are great but short term

    Advice to Management

    Really need to get their stuff together too much chaos no sense of communication among the departments. Department Structural needs much work. Also, Managment needs to take responsibility and invest in the employees do more promoting with in instead of hiring from with out. This really brings down the self of steam of the team. Need to respect people lives and learn to manage work and life balance.
