    I worked at Sprint

    Pros

    The applications were very interesting and the most team members on projects are cooperative and go above and beyond to meet deadlines.

    Cons

    The down side of being a contractor is that contracts only get renewed for 6 months at a time and the contractor does not know if he/she will be extended until a week or 2 prior to the contract end date.

    Pros

    Mid level management is amazing, they try so hard to help you make it and succeed. If you do sell a deal you get paid very well. Salary and benefits line up where they should for this position.

    Cons

    NETWORK NETWORK NETWORK.... Upper level management wants to just give the product away, but customers would weather pay more to have their phones work everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add the towers.

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

    Pros

    Real relaxed environment, not thatvhard of a job. If you have cool coworkers it makes the day go by much faster.

    Cons

    Dealing with angry customers, a constant lack of communication on the customer care level to the store level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to employees scheduling needs.

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

    Pros

    A great opportunity to work for a Fortune 500 company that once was a leader in the telecommunications industry.

    Cons

    The previous CEO's focus was on selling the company or merging with another company - T-Mobile being the most recent attempt. The current CEO is focused on reducing the size of the company while leveraging the expertise of SoftBank personnel to keep the company competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start caring about the employees who work so hard to make the company successful.

    Learning all the new devices way ahead of time.

    Staff.
    After a good associate develops, they keep transfering to other stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep employees in one place, rather than switching them out every so often.

    I have been working at Sprint full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Aside from some of the nice people I had a chance to work with, there is little else to list here.

    Cons

    Misled and promised many things that never came to fruition. HR greeted me with an offer below what management stated they requested and it was only the tip of the iceberg. One of the worst experiences in my professional career.
