Construction Project Manager, Wireless (Current Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAApril 27, 2018
Hard working group of professionals with good office morale, willing to help out others with professional advice as needed, work well together and work as a team to achieve the client's goals.

I advanced through total of 15 years working with Velocitel as a field construction manager to a role as construction project manager with the help of internal training, great support staff and management and was able to work in different markets other than my home market to also promulgate the team concept.

I definitely appreciated the work together atmosphere and the common goal of achieving the end product for the clients such as T-Mobile and AT&T cell sites.
Pros
good office morale

Positive work experience with excellent leadership. Wireless industry is volatile, and work can ebb as it did in my experience, but this is a great place to work.

Unrealistic Expectations, Especially in overpromising to the Client.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJanuary 22, 2018
Frequently you would find yourself at odds with your coworkers and the client, with little to no support in work production and administrative productivity

Don't waste your time.
Billing Assistant (Former Employee) –  East Syracuse, NYJanuary 21, 2018
This is not a company that you should work for if you have any self respect. Outsiders are treated like trash. Any complaints and you might as well tell the wall next to you. Nothing gets done about it. Logic eludes the employees there. You'll get lied to while the managers look you right in the eye and blow smoke up your butt. You'll get blamed for things you didn't do and if your not with the "in crowd", lazy workers and people with attendance problems will be treated like gold while others are dismissed.

Volatile, lack of communication.
anonymous (Former Employee) –  Lake Oswego, ORSeptember 27, 2017
Industry is very volatile. Senior leadership is not trusted, there is no transparency. Communication across the company is poor. Senior leaders expect communication to cascade down through the organization, which does not happen.

Great team!
The telecommunications industry can be very difficult and demanding at times. As part of the construction management team I've had the opportunity to grow and expand my horizons.

Good place to work
Site Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee) –  Lake Oswego, ORJune 13, 2017
Good job security on AT&T project due to steady work, however the company recently decided to stop giving merit raises and no longer match the 401k. This is for an indefinite period of time and came out of nowhere.
Pros
Good management in market, steady work

Corporate cuts to benefits and salary

National Quality Manager (Current Employee) –  Bloomington, MNMay 4, 2017

Site Acquisition Specialist (Former Employee) –  Glen Allen, VAMarch 22, 2017
Although people are friendly, the mananagement team is sneaky. They tell you what they think you want to hear. If you are not their friends, no matter how well of a job you do, you will not be recognized. They keep the slackers and people you have to hold their hands, and get rid of the associates that work, and do not require mundaine assistance.

They hire according to friendshops and the leadership team does not know what they are doing, they have made comments to their clients over the phone.
Pros
Friendly, helpful
Cons
Management needs help!

They tell you they got benefits and advancement opportunity. But don't get tricked! They will use you and cut you off if you don't accept an inevitable pay cut.

Long Hours, poor management
Field Engineer II/Crew Lead (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCAugust 25, 2016
A lot of the job was enjoyable but as a salaried employee you were often expected to work 50+ hours a week with no overtime compensation. When issues arose in the field, management had little or no help to give.
Pros
Decent pay, good coworkers
Cons
60 hour weeks when in the field

Absolutely incredible place to work before the company was bought out by a larger company.
Field Engineer (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAAugust 22, 2016
If you join this company just make sure you are flexible and able to go with the flow. Your experience there will be what you make it there. If you go into it with a open mind enjoy the people you meet and work with and the experiences you have with each other while making good money it will be great.
Pros
People you meet there and the traveling.
Cons
Being laid off.
