Contractor (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – November 25, 2016
Crown is a great place to work at unless your a contractor then your work environment will not be in your favor. Some of the employees treat a contractor like they are less than human and do what they can to make you want to leave by all means possible, Overall everyone else is very nice and willing to give you what support you need on the project your'e working on. Contractors at Crown are the buffer for when the company needs lay people off at the end of the quarter. Overall a great place to work. Free lunches, snacks and coffee.
Great atmosphere for the most part
Don't work harder than the regular employees or you will pay for it with harassment
Great enviroment with Awesome team building experiences

Crown castle from day one has always tried to push the employees to the next level. For 10 years I have watched employees come in from every Telecom business they Excel when they want to. they move to better positions when they want to. some fail but that is not from the companies lack of pushing. This company has numerous resources and numerous channels employees can turn to when they are having a difficult time in any aspect of the job. And with the benefits combined with hours this company cannot be matched by any other company. Out of all the jobs I have had, the culture here is in tune with a career verses just another job.

CC has very great potential outside of the senior management team. There is a lot of nepotism that happens in the Richmond office. When ever local offices can implant true leaders company at every employee level will be very successful-

This is a great company to work for and they do treat employees well as do contractors however, it would be ideally to work under proper management as at times those who are in management position aren't familiar with the tasks required.
Crown Castle has been the best company I have ever worked for
Construction Management (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – October 7, 2014
When I joined Crown Castle I quickly found that this is a company of people who care about the people that work for them. The salary is comensurate with industry standard. However, the benefits are far above industry standard.This is a company that concentrates on development of the employee, fixing processes and employee retention while maintaining the bottom line. It is an affluent company that seeks to continue its growth.
I highly recommend this company for employment.
Company Culture, alot of work, stability
heavy demands upon personnel to perform with an over abundance of work.
Productive and fun workplace with arcade game, ping pong in breakroom and several celebratory meals a year
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – July 28, 2015
I really enjoyed working there and getting to meet the people I worked alongside face to face. They would often hold gatherings where people from other departments or from other states would come to Phoenix and introduce themselves. Everyone works side by side with one another to help solve problems and they are all very willing to take time out of thier schedule to assist newcomers with learning the neccessary steps to ensure their time is being used wisely.
Tons of free lunches, great benifits, wonderful environment
AT&T is a great company to work for and the people I worked with were amazing!!! Great place to work. My department was downsized and there were no other jobs available for me to transfer to at the time.
Licensing Administrator (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh – September 18, 2014
They hire temps and lie to you about your timeframe. I was told I would be brought on full-time within 6 months. I worked for there for a year until I relized they were dragging me on so I found a new position. The management also is a problem. They micro-manage like no tomorrow. Pay is below average for positions
Maintenance Process Supervisor (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – January 20, 2016
Awesome place to work if given the right tools to succeed and the right manager to help give you a plan. Sometimes you are not taught proper techniques to handle situations and some managers micro-manage
Crown Castle is a growth company that offers great benefits and stock options; however, since the company is flat, there isn't a lot of room for upward movement and when there is an opening, there are several candidates waiting for the position. If you are willing to move out of the current state you live for a new / better role, you will be fine.
Land Acquisition/Property Specialist (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 12, 2014
The job was 80+ hrs per week, administrative in nature, using computers "Microsoft Office Suite", and very challenging. I increased my ability to communicate with people more effectively, and to juggle multiple projects with an ever increasing work load. The executive management team and upper management are phoenominal. The overall team were great people with a diverse skill set. The hardest part of the job was overcoming continual and ongoing partner rejection. The position I held was critical, and sales is in my opinion the most challenging position on the planet. The most enjoyable part of the job was building and often repairing relationships with business partners.
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – November 7, 2013
Worked hard for over a year and kept on getting passed up on permanent positions to other temps who work less efficiently than me. They keep on piling up more and more work for you and expect you to finish it all. Management is very poor. Hard work is not rewarded. The only way to move up is to be a ditz. Even if you save the company hundreds of thousands and work way more efficient than your co-workers who like to chit chat, you will get passed up many times for permanent positions because you do enough small talk.
free lunches sometimes
hard to get permanent unless you like to talk a lot
