    Being part of the volatile wireless telecommunications industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing, but get the company to a level where the public has a better overall opinion of the network and the company.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and paid time off.
    "Do more with less" attitude can really support professional and personal growth.
    Prefers to promote from within based upon merit, not tenure.

    Cons

    "Do more with less" attitude also means you can feel overworked and may not be paid as competitively as other wireless carriers in some instances. Work/life balance may be an issue depending on your position in the company. As with any company, it is only as good as the people that you work with and for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete the network upgrades. Pay your employees competitively or they will leave for better paying opportunities.

    I worked at Sprint full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people were great to work with and the company was honest, fair and paid well. Going to work was a pleasure with the team I associated with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    New leadership caused a change in direction that affected many experienced personnel. I am concerned with the delays in the Network upgrades and the leadership now in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower those in the field to make decisions.

    I worked at Sprint as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The best things are due to being at a big company - you get all of those benefits, like training and other resources. As an intern (or otherwise entry level) the atmosphere can be pretty laid back depending on your manager, but there is definite room for advancement.

    Cons

    Priorities can change often but that's nearly any business. I did not notice anything out of the ordinary in the culture. Sometimes it is hard to get to know people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, but definitely focus on whatever it takes to get the brand more well liked than it is.
