    Pros

    Great company
    Great Pay Would recommend working here based on pay, but beware of job security issues
    Flexible schedule
    Good work life balance
    Family friendly
    Lots of opportunities for training

    Cons

    Never know if job is secure, with ongoing layoffs
    Used to have 60K+ employees, now down to less than 30k, due to poor Executive Mgmt decisions during a critical time in the evolution of the wireless industry.
    Health benefit packages have suffered due to changes in health care industry. Employees now paying much more for health care than just a few years ago, and not as many options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide on a strategy and stick with it.
    There are so many strategy changes when a new executive comes in and immediately starts changing things, then he leaves and the next one comes in and changes it back to what it was before.
    The only thing that is constant is change.
