    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

    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.
