    OK Place to Work If You Don't Mind the "LAYOFF ANVIL" Always Hanging Over Your Head

    I worked at Sprint

    Pros

    1) Abilty to learn many different skills
    2) Great coworkers
    3) Decent products/services you can take pride in
    4) Company's "green" initiatives

    Cons

    1) Very poor overall management of organization at mid-level executives (director & VP level)...too many "yes" men.
    2) Company's "business as usual" philosophy is constant reorganizations and layoffs. The company has no budget to carry on over the long term. They tell the investment community that they are having "minor" layoffs (less than 100 employees laid off) due to a reorganization. When, in fact, significantly more than that number are let go. And, it's due to more cost-cutting, not just a reorganization. Then, the executives get a HUGE set of bonuses. Our bonuses were minimized this year. I guess the layoffs helped fund the executives' bonuses. We averaged about 8 layoffs in 9 years. Some of these were significant -- thousands of employees. Anyone under the director (executive) level is just a number. The recent layoffs impacted hundreds of employees, but the executives didn't see the faces of those they approved for layoff. It was no big deal to them. Sprint employees are just minions. The executives continue to sleep well at night; they don't have to worry about putting food on the table for their families.
    3) Company cannot sustain itself over the long-term in constant turmoil and reorganization.
    4) Company doesn't have deep enough "pockets" to compete against AT&T and Verizon over the long term. It appears it is trying to position itself for a buy-out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell out quickly to a new owner with MUCH deeper pockets so you can compete against AT&T and Verizon.

    I worked at Sprint

    Pros

    Good training and job experience. Lots of good people with good middle management. Benefits are what you would expect from a company of this size.

    Cons

    Not a lot of interest from management in innovative thought or actions. Constantly changing the organization structure to try to get it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees more freedom in their approach to their jobs. Create a sense of purpose and personal initiative within the company.
