I worked at American Tower full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Decent pay and benefits. Farily comfortable office. Some departments are better than others in terms of employee motivation and morale, so look for those departments. There's also incredible job security here for at least the next few years as all the carriers race to upgrade their networks.

Cons

Not much chance of advancement unless you're willing to forego having a personal life and become a "Yes Man" to the managers. There is also a definite emphasis on quantity over quality here.

Advice to Management

Listen to the feedback your employees give on their exit interviews. When the company's dry cleaner notices, "Hey, that place has a lot of turnover, doesn't it?", you might have a problem.

    I worked at American Tower full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to dig in across a variety of a disciplines. Lots of hands on experience in accounting, finance and operations. The pace is fast, as the company builds out it's accounting and finance functions, there's plenty of opportunity to learn about the role of technology in accounting and the way that firms automate analysis as well as manage financial controls.

    Cons

    The company is going through change management as it develops it's US finance and accounting operations. This has led to some unsavory behaviors amongst management and a general perception that the ability to brownnose matters more than competence.
