    I have been working at American Tower full-time

    Pros

    Fast-paced ever changing environment. Lots of room for new experiences and opportunities. International growth provides ever increasing areas for professional growth.

    Cons

    Fast-paced ever changing environment which can be challenging, especially for a newcomer. Often the rate of growth prevents the company from developing candidates internally and they go directly to the market for experience.

    Advice to Management

    Planning, planning, planning. Good job but always an area for improvement, especially with the lightening speed at which we operate.

    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.
