    Pros

    Leadership, culture, work environment, guiding principles, camaraderie, benefits, PTO, wellness, onsite conveniences, the list goes on. Would go back to working at SBA in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    None pertaining to the team I was on or the company as a whole. While there may be small pockets of dissatisfaction, as there are in any company, my personal experience was excellent all around!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on leadership development throughout the company.

    Pros

    There are so many reasons to work at SBA Communications. The company is very successful and its a great feeling to be part of an industry leader. The leadership team is experienced and smart. SBA also cares about employees, offering work-life balance, and offers a competitive compensation and benefits package (e.g., generous paid-time-off, company supported health, dental and disability, 401(k) with matching funds, stock program, pet insurance and much more. I also appreciate the SBA Cares program where SBA will match donations and allow time to volunteer.

    Cons

    The pace is fast so be ready for it.

    Pros

    SBA is an awesome company to work for. They treat their employees with respect and are open to employee feedback on how to improve. SBA added a cafe and gym for their employees. They have employee appreciation days and have plan outings. They train from within of needed and give free Excel, Microsoft word, etc classes to help you succeed in your position. This is a career company that you can retire from. The skies the limit. It's like an extended family at SBA. Everyone is upbeat and proud of this company.

    Cons

    The only Cons I can think of are if you don't do your job and miss too many days of work you get fired. That simple.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great office- good location-some very nice people

    Cons

    No credit where credit is due- upper management can’t make a desicion- there’s the haves and have nots. No room to move up from middle management - bonus is hardly ever given as they look for every reason not to give it

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees- instead of your “executive club” try boosting people through the ranks that are actually doing the work

    Pros

    The bad outweighs the good unfortunately. When you walk into the building it seems very impressive and top notch. You are boondoggled into thinking this is a great place when you start but within a few weeks you see how miserable and depressed people are. You see how poorly management treats their employees. I was astonished. Tension is thick and everyone seems on edge. Most importantly nobody seems happy here. It's odd because you would think a company of this stature would take well care of their employees and morale would be good. It's anything but...Funny thing is I was warned about this company but didn't take it serious. Shame on you SBA.

    Cons

    I would probably need about 5 whole pages. SweatShop Labor puts it lightly. You cannot report any bad doings or retaliation will indeed happen. Lots of turnover like a call center.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better, Treat your employees better. Stop posting fake reviews here to boost your score..........

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, great accommodation beside good location - Boca Raton Congress easy access to I-95

    Cons

    Nothing really significant. You need to like to work hard, because is a lot to be done. without do extras hours - Extras hours always are welcome in my department.
