    Pros

    Good vacation and time off benefits. Nice health package, but other wireless benefits confusing and constantly changing.

    Cons

    Sucks to work in retail for the worst carrier. I get yelled at all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect retail. Don't give bonuses to corporate employees based on how well sales do if we dont qualify for the benefit.

    Pros

    Management supports workers. Opportunities exist to create change. Paid fairly for good work. Confident in leadership. New ownership provides deep pockets.

    Cons

    Several reorganizations have been required to compete with much larger traditional phone companies (Verizon and ATT). Strategy has shifted due to reorganizations - Change is everywhere, but, it feels like a constant at Sprint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain current employment policies and benefits to retain and recruit well. Focus on opportunities to differentiate and leverage experience from Parent Company, Softbank.

    Pros

    A great mix of people where you can learn so much from a diverse group

    Cons

    Typical corporate environment, where upper management does not communicate their goals and direction, but assumes you will get it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No matter what level you are at, you need to regularly meet with 2-3 levels below you to drive your goals and get a taste of what is real. CEO's VP & Directors get too involved in the BS, and don't really understand what the worker bees are dealing with on a day to day basis. If you don't communicate your goals or direction on a regular basis, how do you expect the people doing the work to get it right?
