Network Development Intern

Network Development Intern (Former Employee)
Reston, VA

I worked at Sprint as an intern for less than a year

ProsIt's a good place to start your career. You are introduced to most modern equipment and services in telecommunications industries, Sprint is ranked 3rd and that's good. The internship is laid back and it depends on the intern to volunteer for the level of challenge.

ConsThe possibility of converting the internship to full time is less.
Pay is comparatively less than other peer companies.

Great Company!

Sales Engineer (Current Employee)
Reston, VA

I have been working at Sprint full-time for more than a year

ProsManagement level and lower, the people are fantastic and the culture of the company is also fantastic. The pay is reasonable.

ConsExecutive leadership executes poorly. The new network has taken too long to roll out. and to cover themselves they have laid over many of their best employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementLetting go of a substantial portion of sales and sales support to grow business is not going to help the company in the long run.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

A company with a good heart, and a new owner with the money and will to leverage the assets.

Solutions Engineer (Current Employee)
Reston, VA

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

ProsThe company finally has a future with the investment from SoftBank. Massive network upgrades getting done, and bringing hope in 2014.

ConsThe near-term focus of sales management is consumer and small/general business growth, and not large enterprise/gov't customers. Not great if you are a sales engineer focused on complex wireless solutions for big customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo more to develop a competitive attitude across all functions. Don't settle for 3rd or 4th place!
