    Pros

    Great Benefits, Dynamic work environment, great team collaborations. Great career environment

    Cons

    Constant change, customer perception of the company is negative at the moment (Sprint is working hard to change that)

    Advice to Management

    Implement an employee feedback form on the front page of the employee website that anonymously captures feedback from employees on what the pain points are and make a serious attempt to adapt to the repetitive situations Move quicker with IT implementations. Supply management teams with funds to do team building activities with their staff

    Pros

    Sprint has a culture of internal promotion and advancement. From day one it's very clear how you can advance to the next level in your career. Pay is very, very competitive and management negotiates with HR on your behalf for raises and the like. You can have a great sales career at Sprint with the right manager and market.

    Cons

    Sprint is suffering some major brand perception challenges that makes winning new accounts uncontrollably difficult. On top of poor perception is actual poor product performance (in some areas). On the business side you're selling the network. Sprint has been consistently rated on the bottom in terms of performance so it seems like you're constantly just selling bottom dollar. From a career standpoint, you hit a ceiling for advancement if you don't want to go into management. (AE1 > AE2 > ???) Some have spent years in the same role. If management is your thing you can easily leverage decent sales performance to hurdle into a a management role.

    Advice to Management

    The internal promotion and recognition gets out of hand sometimes. People get caught doing things not because it's what's best but because of wanting to be on some committee or recognition board. Focus on results and move on.

    Pros

    Good people. Work anywhere is the philosophy. Go into office for meetings only.

    Cons

    Network is challenged and has been for years. Tough sell for enterprise reps unless customer is already using Sprint.

    Advice to Management

    figure out a long term strategy and stick with it. Knee jerk reactions to business are the norm.

    Pros

    Free and discounted cell service, decent pay. Immediate supervisors are often great to work for, but have little actual say in the work or job performance process. Great team members and people committed to trying to do good by the customers

    Cons

    No opportunity at promotions and little focus on professional growth. Employees treated like numbers on a spreadsheet, with little or no opportunity to stand out unless will to relocate to corporate headquarters in Kansas City. Constant reorganizations and layoffs create fear and lack of motivation to do the right thing, just the cheapest alternative. No actual care about customers other than hitting arbitrary metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce management depth with actual attempts to listen to front line employees. Try to hire from within, nut outside the insular culture of corporate headquarters. Value employees to look beyond short term metrics and look at actual results and feedback from customers.
