    I have been working at American Tower full-time

    Pros

    Financial stability, good CEO and Senior Vice Presidents, most employees are nice, strategic vision for the company is sound

    Cons

    Management is extremely critical of their employees, they micro-manage, and they're very unpleasant to work for. For the most part they're new to managing IT which has also resulted in roadblocks taking way too long to get resolved. The IT Organization has a revolving door so avoid getting too attached to any of the coworkers. Given the financial stability of the company it's extremely sad to see the poor culture IT Management has decided to foster, there's just no reason for it other than their own egos.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more and talk less, appreciate the effort employees put in and allow employees to make mistakes -- this is how people learn, when trying a new method realize it's not going to go smoothly the first time around be reasonable with employees instead of blaming them when things don't go the way you anticipated. And for goodness sake, take accountability for your actions and direction.

    Pros

    Stable company in bad economy. Nice vacation package, cafeteria, and gym

    Cons

    When I started I had a lot of loyalty and pride in the company, and thought that with hard work I could succeed and make it to the next level. However, only friends of managers get promoted, and hard work is not recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Be polite and at least say "Good Morning" or "Have a good weekend" to employees!
