I have been working at Sprint full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits, flexible work schedule (for most corporate employees), work/life balance. There are advancement opportunities and many employees have high tenure. A high number of employees have a sense of loyalty to the company and believe in its value.

Cons

Micromanaging is a huge issue right now due to the pressure to make sales quotas or validate someone's position. They lack much needed interdepartment communication on key initiatives. Each department only focuses on their needs rather than a company-wide vision. Executive management teaches not to manage by the numbers but that's all everyone does, and it comes from the top down. The commission structure is so confusing that no Sales Rep knows how they get paid (corporate sales, not retail).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower your employees and they will be more motivated to excel. Don't manage by the numbers. Trust your exempt level employees to manage their time wisely and reward by their accomplishments rather than micromanaging.

    I have been working at Sprint full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    As with many large Fortune 100 corporations, it is difficult to stand out. However, when you do the rewards far outweigh those of a small business. Benefits are good to great compared to other corporations in other industries.

    Cons

    Again, hard to stand out from the crowd. Years and several opportunities will pass until a promotion occurs. The good and deserving ones wait it out.
