    Current Employee - Project Manager III  in  Overland Park, KS
    Current Employee - Project Manager III in Overland Park, KS

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

    Pros

    I get to telecommute, although the company policy is definitely not fairly enforced across all work groups.
    Free phone service.
    Great benefits (health, dental, vision).
    Paid well.

    Cons

    Have to buy your own office supplies.
    Managers reporting to managers; org structures make zero sense.
    Tons of duplication of efforts; roles and responsibilities not clearly defined.
    Unfair enforcement of corporate policies.
    Don't tolerate people who speak up.
    No long-term roadmap for system development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out in the trenches to see what's really going on; don't rely on what the VPs are telling you.
    Don't leave things to "manager discretion." Creates discontent when policies are not fairly applied.
    Stop spending $$ on things like sending VPs to London to carry the Olympic Torch.

    Company Struggling

    Current Employee - Manager  in  Overland Park, KS
    Current Employee - Manager in Overland Park, KS

    I have been working at Sprint full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great campus
    I worked with some amazing people here - unfortunately, company doing very poorly in a very competitive industry
    Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Kansas City has very few opportunities outside of Sprint and maybe a handful of other smaller companies. So, with a lay-off, it would be hard to find something else.
    Upward mobility severly limited given the strategic struggles at the company - when the company is trying to fix itself, promoting internal talent is far down on priority list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course on your strategies - don't change every six months.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
