    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, great marketing department!

    Cons

    Pigheaded, arrogant attitude because the company is so valuable, and does not listen to the people that keep the engine oiled and moving.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and listen to the good employees that really have the company's best interest at heart. Just Because management make the decisions they are not always right. Sometimes it's necessary to miss a deadline to ensure the data is accurate. Fire incompetent managers in a timely manner, that do not know the industry and have really nothing of value to offer. Stop making the same mistakes over and over again. Give an idea the opportunity to succeed before pivoting and changing strategies. Recognize talent when you see it and nurture that employee toward upward mobility. Learn to relax and have fun and not take yourself so seriously.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good leaders, moving in the right direction quickly. A lot of room for advancement, great training, up and coming NOC and some great new leadership.

    Cons

    not much difference between the raise a quality performer gets compared to an exceptional performer

    Advice to Management

    ATC needs to reward their high performers better and they should consider managing the low performers out much more quickly.

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

    Pros

    Boston and Marlborough locations have some room for growth...kind of... unless there is a re-org to save the C-level management.

    Cons

    Upper level management (VP and above) are not worthy of the positions they hold. To them you are just a number and a salary that can be cut when a new contract is coming up.

    Advice to Management

    Learn value management techniques. Learn what your employees actually do over your perceptions based on lack of listening skills when you are told.
