    I worked at Cricket Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The camaraderie was great. Most of my co-workers were genuinely good people. Pay was decent and the job was not difficult and was very fun.

    Cons

    I don't feel the company truly cared about their indirect partners and seemed to play favorites with the bigger dealers. I also feel the company made poor decisions regarding inventory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the inventory situation straightened out. Also be fair with indirect partners, give them a reasonable compensation.

    I have been working at Cricket Communications full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    From what I've seen, it's nearly impossible for low performers and borderline psychopaths to get fired (that's a whole other story). There is technically potential for for a good paycheck...

    Cons

    ... but with the restructuring of the bonus payout coupled by impossible goals that seem to be made out of thin air, its nearly impossible to keep up with rent. The promise (lie) was $47,000 yearly. Sadly, I'm barely clearing $27,000.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cutting the pay of the people who generate your profits to satisfy the share-holders is only setting yourself up for failure. If you want to cut real fluff, focus on the admin offices. Every time I go to the Houston admin office, it seems like a party in there... Did you cut their pay? I didn't think so...
