    I had so much hope that Sprint could turn their mess around

    I worked at Sprint full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Sprint for 10+ years and started out as a great company, still immature, but great employees. Never worried about layoffs as I received may awards and excellent performance evaluations. A top performer. It was a great company culture and plenty of room for advancement.

    Cons

    Around my 6th year there things started to change. Management teams had no skills, huge egos and fought amongst themselves as if we were working against each internal group instead of for the same company with same goals. It continued to degrade, only a few of us I would consider leaders, employees started feeling hopeless, useless, and we lost a good amount of SME's all due to bad management, bad project decisions, and poor planning resulting in insane delivery timeframes. I noticed a lot of my peers were unhappy to the point that health issues were left and right. Sprint lost direction. Employees that were pretty useless were never held accountable for any issues they caused or overlooked, teams started to get lazy. Both Oracle and IBM resources were brought in or utilized offshore which only caused more communication issues and shady practices. My director had no open door policy although she led people to believe she did, but once any complaint was brought to her she quickly dismissed and defended managers behavior. I had so much loyalty towards Sprint, but continuously watching the company make bad decisions with projects and employees and losing important SME's I had no choice but to jump ship. They do not train, they do not set expectations, they breed hate between the business, IT, and network teams and HR was only there to protect Sprint from lawsuits, not employees in any way. It was very disappointing and I left last year and have not regretted that decision at all. Best thing for me although I do miss my employees and my peers and wish them the best through all the current layoffs. I would not recommend Sprint unless something drastic happens and the focus should be on the management staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide whether you want to manage people or lead them to success. Let go of your egos and listen to your employees. People are not numbers and my last there with the last manager and director I was under was the worst experience of my career. And one more thing directly to a certain director, do not threaten employees that you will ruin their careers if they move to another department. Grow the hell up, try being honest and genuine and maybe you wouldn't be in the mess you are now. You are the ones ruining this company, not Dan Hesse and certainly not the employees that spend endless hours working to make company success. You've ruined what could've been a great company with poor attitudes and poor decisions, especially without taking advice from the people that actually have the intelligence and knoweldge to keep Sprint on the right track. Stop your management 101 tactics as they make you look ignorant and easier to disrespect that type of management style. Get training or go do your micro management at a call center where they might welcome the help. I could not be more disappointed in the way things had turned out my last few years there, a company I loved turned into another pathetic corporation with no direction and I will be shocked if Sprint is around much longer. It will be a sprint of softbank, corrupt oracle and ibm vendors and nothing to be proud of anymore. Good luck.
