Former Employee - Technical Project Manager in Overland Park, KS

I worked at Sprint full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good Benefits
Interesting Project opportunities
Compensation is fair
Flexible work
Open to work from home
Professional environment
Office environment was very nice clean
Parking free
Opportunities to work in various areas on projects
Met some very interesting and diverse people here

Cons

Management states to "Yell loud and Yell early" when there are problems on a project. But this can work against you. Being honest about internal politics or organizational bureaucracy can work against you.
Bureaucracy and Politics
Not an 8-5 job
May work more than 40 hours or be on call depending on your work area
Layoffs are definitely possible
Moving into higher levels of management is more challenging as possibilities are more limited.
No pension

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Follow through on open door policy
Follow through when employees come forth with issues within the organization or that impede project success.
Bureaucracy
Politics -- try to eliminate so much of this to make work life more effective and efficient
Listen to employee feedback

Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent, salary is ok, could be better, location is excellent, managers are wonderful.

    Holiday hours were too long, rude customers, you don't need a meeting every Saturday, have a meeting 15 minutes before the store opens with your employees and one mandatory meeting once a month!

    Former Employee - Manager in Overland Park, KS

    I worked at Sprint full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The ability to move between jobs every year allows for a ton of personal growth if you seek out and capitalize on the opportunities.

    Cons

    During the last few years of my career, compensation was locked. Company results were dictating this issue, but as I had moved up several tiers of responsibility, my pay did not increase to reflect those changes. This ultimately led to me leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current management team seems to be doing well in turning the ship, I hope they continue down the current path.
