Just wondering how my fellow team members are doing amid skyrocketing rent costs, $6/gal gas, Covid cases on the rise, the highest inflation rates since 1981, etc. These are crazy times. How are you all doing?
We are losing too many people who are taking a good chunk of institutional knowledge with them. We're already having issues with this, some processes are taking much longer than they should. If people continue leaving at this rate, the company will... — read more
How come executives get to work remote as a covid precaution without a positive test or symptoms? They don't want to potentially expose each other's families to an annoying cold but us bottomfeeders have to show up week after week to see people... — read more
Has anyone noticed the second-wave exoducs of longtime Crown employees in their departments? Ever since the office return, it seems its accelerated greatly. How are things in you rneck of the woods?
What do you make? What is your role? Please post in the new pay grade format like P1 - $XX/hr I'll start - CEO - 18 mil in... — read more
I was offered an “off cycle” pay raise because of this site. I submitted my resignation and cited pay as my reason for leaving. I then showed the district director one of the threads on this site where somebody with my same job title stated their... — read more
Why so slow, why so low value add?
EMT needs a shakeup. Nothing new to see or hear. Talk about lack of value creation. They are just sitting around watching their stock options pile up. There has been a lack of diversity for years, so they make alterations at the board level. Make... — read more
Tone deaf EMT keeps getting worse. What am I doing with my bonus? I'm paying my rent that went up 40%, inflation that's up 6-12%, and the $5 a gallon gas I need to get to the office now. They should be ashamed, I hope someone with less to lose has... — read more
All things considered, the bonus was pretty decent this year. I got my standard 15% plus an extra 5 percent kicker added on. My RSU award was equivalent to 22% of my base. My annual raise was only 1.89 percent but the bonus kicker made up for it. ... — read more
Anyone else wish we could go back to 100% remote?
Although I didn't have visibility to all departments, unfortunately, the overall sentiment recently has been that the culture has declined. Benefits remain strong but at the cost of no work/life balance and toxic environments.
Some say Crown has no problem hiring new candidates. How then do you explain that for a long time now no one has filled the open positions of two of my colleagues who left? I still think the company is having trouble hiring new people. Just like... — read more
So, what is the result of all the restructuring in the last few years? I would say that the result is gradually worsening workplace. This company doesn't seem to have a clear goal anymore. At least that's how it looks to me. Are you tired of bad... — read more
So what do y’all think of the new reorg in Tower Ops?
Multiple TTM's were given their walking papers. One of them just finished a project for Jay that went live this week. Stay classy Crown!
I hope there will be no "unpleasant surprises" after the earnings report is released.
I just recently discovered this site and I’m surprised by how many disgruntled employees we have. Perhaps it’s just a vocal minority but down here in the south, morale is pretty good considering. Not perfect but it’s better than what I’ve been... — read more
Changes are coming in 2022. Supervisors and ops managers at the 6E pay grade will no longer be eligible for RSUs. A lot of supervisors will be upset. Without the long term incentives, plenty of talent will become part of the great resignation. Bye... — read more
They really did say "some of you may die but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make." Right after that spiel on diversity too.
Return to being a caring, relationship and employee-focused company. Promote from within based on merit and performance rather than cronyism. Return to zero-tolerance or rewards for bullies and phonies. Provide greater transparency and equity in pay... — read more
I found another position and I could start as soon as next week if I want to but I'm too scared to quit even with a job lined up since I don't have substantial savings. How do people do it? I know I'm not the only one who wants to change a job but... — read more
If you could tell the EMT the #1 thing they need to do to bring Crown back to a relatively great place to work, what would it be? It seems like a lot of us are really unhappy and discouraged about our jobs right now but are holding out for things to... — read more
VP used to mean something. Not no more. The new VP for the east don’t make me laugh. I have worked under this bully jerk for almost 2 years and hes a joke. my team is terrified of him and his lieutenants and henchmen. Sick that he is are VP. Watch... — read more
I don't know how Crown Castle came up with that, but for me there is no greater motivation than when I have so much work that I can barely get enough rest, so that I can continue working at the same pace the next day, and some colleagues don't even... — read more
More pay out of the executives instead of investing it into employees or God forbid systems.
If you can find employment at any other company I'd advise you to do it. Here, you will be met with more work than you can handle despite working constant overtime and no chance of moving up no matter what you do. Promotions are reserved for family... — read more
How do you think it’s going to go? I believe weasel Jay will paint a rosy picture, tell everybody how great Crown is doing because of all the Verizon and Dish C band upgrades, all while Crown bleeds money by overpaying GCs and upper management... — read more
careful if you have reported vaccinated and are loading proof later with different date from when first reported. Company is checking and firing when they don’t match. Many fired this week. More work for those of us left. Company has become a joke. — read more
Does it just seem to me or is this becoming a company where mediocrity thrives? There are exceptions of course, those who really work hard and are very professional, but it surprises me when I see how mediocre people are building careers here... — read more
On the plus side, it’s not that bad because I quickly learned some new things that could help me get a better job somewhere else faster. However, wearing multiple hats over multiple months literally burned me out. For a long time now, none of my... — read more
for many, coming into the office requires a distinctly unromantic commute. It means cobbling together childcare plans, particularly with the nationwide bus driver shortages and school quarantine regulations after illness or a potential exposure. It... — read more
I think very few people would rather quit than get vaccinated. However, I do not believe that the leadership has plans for how to replace these people. By way of cause and effect more people will leave because they will not be able to endure... — read more
What do y’all think of today’s an announcement?
It seems very two faced, insincere, and poorly thought out. If you really care about the environment then reduce traffic and don’t let your employees spend hours driving every day. Clogged roads make emergency services less efficient. Nobody wants to... — read more
What does Crown actually expect from an employee? To work for several people and be grateful to have a job? This is awful. I love my job and have always been a hard worker, but the amount of work now done by a single employee is humiliating. People... — read more
