    I worked at Sprint

    Pros

    I was an intern and felt very welcoming and comfortable.
    Most of my coworkers have been working in Sprint for 10-15 and also 30 years.
    My team welcomes new ideas and doesn't hesitate to try any thing.
    Work life balance at its best!

    Cons

    Personal growth would be an issue if you are starting your career and trying to move forward in the industry.

    I worked at Sprint full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Room for advancement.
    Decent training programs.

    Cons

    Layoffs are announced every 3 months.
    Any hint of "small town charm" that came from Nextel is now gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the resources you have to do more, instead of hiring people and compartmentalizing their job duties unnecessarily.

    Pros

    The company is going through reorganization. Our new CEO is working hard to make Sprint the best company possible and provide customers with an authentic and reliable network. Employees are appreciated for the most part.

    Salaries are ok. Benefits could be better. Uncertainty with job security since large layoffs occurring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to show your employees in the trenches they are appreciated.
