    Pros

    Pays well. Cool people to work with. Great benefits. Employee phone plan.

    Cons

    At risk for commission is lower than most other companies. Retail hours. Work/Life balance, you will always feel like you're working. Goals are very aggressive.

    I have been working at Sprint full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have always loved working on computers and with technology. Sprint has given me the opportunity of the last 15 years to learn, develop, and grow a skill set that will benefit me for the rest of my life, while getting paid very well in the process.

    My time working at Sprint in Network and IT Operations has granted me the chance to learn from and develop relationships with people who I can only describe as outstanding. I have also had the chance to work with and learn from vendors at companies such as IBM, HP, BMC, EDS, and CA (just to name a few).

    If you are love technology and want to learn from some of the best and brightest in the business....Sprint is a great place to work in my opinion.

    Cons

    Due to the competitive nature of the Telecommunications Industry in recent years (the last 5-6) there have been quite a few layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is more so advice to the board of directors over our company than anyone at the management level.

    The only and really on beef that I, and many of my coworkers, have taken issue with during the last few years of layoff after layoff is this...

    Stop giving executives 50+ million dollars to quit working for us, then in the same year announce another round of layoffs.

    To say that this type of move undermines employee confidence about our companies values would be an understatement.

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of training options, flexible working locations.

    Cons

    Hard to move up without executive sponsorship, still going through changes at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on lines of business that generate revenue, focus on helping business customers grow their business instead of sticking with "good old boy" club.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, committed people, opportunity to advance. Sprint has been a great place to build my career and has provided opportunities to many of my co-workers. It's not uncommon to work alongside someone who joined the company working in the mail room, climbing towers, etc.

    Cons

    Changes in senior level management, constant churn in Marketing, company not positioned well in telecom industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide guidance to remaining employees on viability of OP headquarters
