Overall a good place to work if you can handle constant change, bureaucracy, and unstable employment.

Pros

Sprint Nextel is very flexible. There is a lots of telecommuting. They also offer an excellent employee phone program. It is a pretty structured and organized company. There are many resources to find information. They finally have a competent and smart CEO in Dan Hesse.

Cons

The company culture is extremely bureaucratic; to the point that it is hard to execute at times. Executive leadership is sometimes too detached to understand big problems, identify solutions and execute fast and seamlessly. Delegation is the motto at Sprint. Lastly, employment is very unstable. Workforce reductions are common at Sprint Nextel, regardless of economic conditions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remove some of the bureaucracy from top down so the company can execute; simplify processes for customers, business partners and employees; do something with the IDEN customer NOW before the remainder of them deflect to other carriers.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits (medical, dental life). The bonus system is okay. The amount of time accrued off per month is okay.

    Cons

    They could care less about you and your personal life. No matter if you have a Dr excuse, pregnant dying or whatever, if you don't have any "points" you are out the door...considering they have not given any rises in 3+ years they should be glad someone will work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn your job and quit passing off everything to everyone else. How about the Managers learn the system and procedures so they can HELP OUT!
