    Good people & projects to work on. Employees are all striving to do the best for the company. Good benefits.

    Pros

    Management is always willing to listen to entry level people and are constantly looking to make the company better. From Marcelo (CEO) down to the people I work with, there is a lot of energy in making this company a success. Getting Better Everyday is not just something they say but something they are living now! Love working there and hope to keep doing so for years to come!

    Cons

    There is still a conception in some areas that the Sprint network is not as strong as the competitors. I would challenge those people to look again as the network team had made incredible strides. This is something we at Sprint battle every day but are slowly starting to win that battle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on recognizing employees and the incredible talent pool you have. The best of the best will draw the top candidates from across the nation as people realize that the best challenge is the one you don't even know about yet.

    I worked at Sprint full-time

    Pros

    Exciting, fast paced work environment.

    Cons

    No feeling of job security, layoffs too frequently. Work environment was dependent on what management you happened to be working under that week.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some of the good ole boy management.

    I worked at Sprint (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, people (most), technology partnerships.

    Cons

    Too many to name, or to waste time reminiscing.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the Ivory Tower and listen to your customers, or resign - you're not as great as you think you are.

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

    Pros

    Free phone service and family gets phone discount perks

    Cons

    Company goes through at least 1 major re-organizations per year. This always come together with massive lay-off, and changes of Roles and Responsibilities. Employees are highly demotivated, and have lost faith in the leadership team. Roles and Responsibilities keep on changing and never clear. Teams keep duplicating the work, and nobody really cares.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your mind
