LANDLORD RELATIONS SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Woburn, MA – November 16, 2017
I enjoyed the level of training and information provided to you- really helped promote your personal and professional growth while educating you about the internal and external process, company goals and ethics encouraged.
The work is ok, however the amount of change that happens isn't effective. Also, there is never any direction on what the next steps are. I have learned a great deal about the telecommunications industry as well as project management.
Business Intelligence Lead (Current Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – October 30, 2017
Good company to work for with great benefits. Work culture is positive with lot of opportunities to grow if you are willing to relocate. Additionally it always looks good on resume to work for a Fortune 500 firm.
Hostile take - over. Prior to my employment there, American Tower had just acquired another cell tower real estate company and inherited 100% of its workforce. Those workers who decided to stay, were not happy with the new management and that created tension between the employees especially with temps like me. The senior real estate specialists were rude, impatient and inconsistent with their performance and expectations of me as a new project specialist. I had only a few hours of training and basically had to train myself. Despite all that, I was willing to endure the adversity and strived to make a career at American Tower. I suffered a rear end collision 3 months into my employment with American Tower and had to take a few days off for treatment and diagnostic imaging. Internal memos suggested I would be a permanent employee at the time. While I was at my imaging appointment, my temp agency call and told me that American Tower would not take me on as a permanent employee.
Great location; close to hwy and eateries, great parking, clean, professional environment, exposure to billion dollar real estate market
Poor management, unfriendly work environment, no job security, misleading expectactions
Challenges and Learning Opportunities but Low Pay and Limited Advancement Opportunity
Senior Data Analyst (Current Employee) – Woburn, MA – October 3, 2017
I have learned and developed many marketable skills at American Tower. There are always new challenges and projects to work on so employees often stay busy. However, pay is below market and there aren't many opportunities for advancement unless you have political / social capital. This is the type of place where you get ahead based on who you know as opposed to what you can do.
Re-build Project Manager Permanent (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 12, 2017
My job as Regional Rebuild and Rehab Project Manager for the Northeast Region was fun and satisfying. I was responsible for upgrading 27 tower sites in 5 states. As part of my job I had to visit each site, supervise the tower climb and inspection, gather and develop field data for site upgrade and development, contact contractors and adjudicate contracts for remediation or new build projects. I spent 80-90% of my time on the road gathering information or overseeing site work. The hardest part of the job was getting the main office to execute my permits so my work could be done. The most satisfying part was to see a site that had been overlooked or off line for a number of years back on line.
Great company all around but the Dallas, Texas office management was cold and distant at best. Management needs to work on their people skills and the company, as a whole, needs their offices to be closer to Mass Transit where available. I had to ride a bike 2 miles to the office from the nearest transit stop for 3 weeks until my car was fixed. Also, compensation for the transit passes would be awesome. Other than that, its a fine place to work.
Great co-workers, optimal conditions, safety and enviromentally consious, great learning and advancement opportunities
no mass transit compensation, some offices difficult to get to, cold and distant management
Senior Accounting Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 17, 2017
Fact paced and family oriented work environment with great employee benefits. Great Senior leadership team with an eye on constant evolution. While headquarters are based in Massachusetts, Senior Management team travels frequently to Atlanta to hold town hall meetings to gauge employee atmosphere.
