No worries. I'm posting at work, so I'm loath to go into much detail about who I work for, but trust me, it is as bland/vanilla as you can find.
Our company Annual Report is all kinds of boy toy fun and my division doesn't even make it to the color, glossy pages. We're a blip at best. I
have no clearances of any kind. I'm just a hired gun. I apologize for being vague about the company, etc.
As for what we do, a carrier (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc.) hires us to manage a project in a region. Whether it is building new towers,
co-locating on existing, or upgrading existing, we have to jump through all the hoops of real estate, regulatory, design, permitting, environmental,
etc. Get it set, then hire contractors to do the actual work. The process from beginning to end can take anywhere from 6 months to a year or more
per site. Mobile telecom isn't considered a utility like a power company, so no eminent domain and no doing what we please where we please. It's a
chore... but it pays the bills.
