    An outstanding 17 year experience.

    Director Corp Center (Current Employee) Overland Park, KS

    ProsAbility to work in different areas. Like working for multiple companies without having to change companies.

    ConsWhen they did away with the pension, they started feeling like any other company. After the merger with Nextel, Sprint started losing what made it such a great place to work (it's swagger). Through all my years there we focused on the network, then the from 2004/5 to 2007 the shift went to focusing on minutes for PCS. The sales teams no longer had to know as much about the network as they did Apps, and cellular devices. Think about it, Sprint enterprise teams were focusing on selling other companies products and applications in order to sell more minutes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink about it, Sprint enterprise teams were focusing on selling other companies products and applications in order to sell more minutes.

    At the time, Sprint was in restructuring mode

    Group Manager (Former Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsGood, honest, hard-working colleagues in KC corporate offices; Fortune 500 type budgets, salaries, vacation and other benefits; KC was a nice area to live, especially for families.

    ConsAt the time, many of the corporate support functions seemed to have redundant positions across and within business units. This made for some teamwork frustrations. This may have been mitigated in subsequent restructurings.
