    I worked at Sprint full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training is very in-depth with all the different systems that they use to make your job a lot easier. You are constantly trained on the latest cell phone technology. You have a lot of benefits including PTO, free cell phone service, great insurance, and discounts on accessories. Even with a big corporation like Sprint they try as hard as possible to do the most for their customers. Yes, I know sometimes they can't.

    Cons

    High quotas. Really not an issue if you know how to sell. No set schedule usually. Most likely get transferred to different stores.

    I worked at Sprint full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to succeed if you are willing to put the effort in to improve your skills. My management team was very willing to help me overcome any deficiencies and quick to praise my successes. Good work life balance. Overtime was available on a volunteer basis only(no forcing). Good PTO accrual.

    Cons

    Too many obsolete system tools and some that just did not work. Management personnel were not always on the same page when analyzing account issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to to give more empowerments to the account reps.

    I worked at Sprint full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Lots of paid vacation, benefits are fantastic, fast-paced environment, and every manager I have had has been supportive, thoughtful, and actually LISTENS and TALKS ME THROUGH anything I need! There are also a lot of opportunities for improvement and advancement. This is especially true if you are in the Kansas City area or willing to move.

    Cons

    There is a lot of PTO time available, but it can be difficult to find an opportunity to take time off. My manager is personally wonderful about this and encourages us to take the time off, but not all of them are.

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

    Pros

    depending on whom you had for a boss your 'life' could be very different as the so called standards weren't always enforced so the NY office could be much diff then say the FL office. There was lots of freedom pre-softbank, and I think that was the biggest benefit

    Cons

    definitely paid on the lower end of the salary scale, little to NO room for any salary increase nor promotions n the restructing re soft bank make it not so fun

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make the sales and engineering (se) organizations completely separate and make the pre sale unit just that, bring back full wireline and wireless revamp the M2M group.
