    I have been working at Sprint

    Pros

    Sprint has excellent benefits and their total compensation package is very good. If you have a manager you like and are part of a good team, then you can enjoy working at Sprint.

    Cons

    Sprint has been struggling for a long time and it has taken a toll on employees. Many feel burned out and wonder if they are up for the challenge of turning this company around. For me the company culture is very much focused around smaller, vertical organizations within Sprint. It all seems positive at the corporate level but at the worker level I don't see a lot of enthusiasm. Most people are just hanging in there because they haven't identified a better opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our new CEO has set the tone for the future. It is not going to be easy and there is a lot of work to be done. What keeps people at Sprint is, "Do they like their manager and their teammates?". What executives do or say doesn't have a direct impact. It's what my manager and director say and do. If employees believe in their immediate management chain and believe their work is making Sprint a better company then management will get top performance.

    I have been working at Sprint

    Pros

    Great perks as far as holiday's off and vacation time. Freedom to balance work and personal life. The campus is gorgeous and has a good atmosphere.

    Cons

    It is easy to become stuck in a rut. It is also sometimes very difficult to keep up with the direction the company is going, communication between decision makers and the people who execute those decisions is not normally in line to optimize productiveness.

    I worked at Sprint

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, good co-workers, some flexibility

    Cons

    Very high reorg / reduction in force rate (happens annually many times multiple times within a year). Performance not considered when reduction in force happens - appear to target tenure and high salaried employees consistently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your best, quality over quantity. Don't sacrifice quality of employee and work for lower paid employees doing the job - quality of work isn't the same
