    Pros

    Great office environment. I've always enjoyed the people I work with.

    Cons

    Have always enjoyed my time working here, however I've never enjoyed the leadership. Lots of promises, but rarely do they follow through with whats being said.

    Advice to Management

    More insight from employees, try to understand the position of the people you manage.

    Pros

    Sprint has a culture of internal promotion and advancement. From day one it's very clear how you can advance to the next level in your career. Pay is very, very competitive and management negotiates with HR on your behalf for raises and the like. You can have a great sales career at Sprint with the right manager and market.

    Cons

    Sprint is suffering some major brand perception challenges that makes winning new accounts uncontrollably difficult. On top of poor perception is actual poor product performance (in some areas). On the business side you're selling the network. Sprint has been consistently rated on the bottom in terms of performance so it seems like you're constantly just selling bottom dollar.

    From a career standpoint, you hit a ceiling for advancement if you don't want to go into management. (AE1 > AE2 > ???) Some have spent years in the same role. If management is your thing you can easily leverage decent sales performance to hurdle into a a management role.

    Advice to Management

    The internal promotion and recognition gets out of hand sometimes. People get caught doing things not because it's what's best but because of wanting to be on some committee or recognition board. Focus on results and move on.

    Pros

    Laid back company and employees, new action-oriented CEO, and overall good people.

    Cons

    Low employee morale, lack of direction from leadership, lack of incentive to go above and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Sprint is in desperate need of fresh blood, as well as a change in leadership which holds themselves and their employees accountable.

    Pros

    You get to interact with different people all day and it helps make the day go by quickly.

    Cons

    Some traffic changes from season to season such as summer versus winter. There can be days were less than five customers come in. It really messes with your quota which in turn affects your $$$.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing, intervene when asked and not just jump into a sale.

    Pros

    I loved working for sprint. the company culture was great and the benefits were awesome.

    Cons

    No diversity. My Co-workers were mainly hispanics. As an African American, I found it intimidating. Managers had their favorites, Manager/ASM were mostly hispanics. So you can imagine that picture.

    Advice to Management

    Hire different people. just not hispanics.

    Pros

    Great open space and excellent compensation. A lot of opportunity in fast pace.

    Cons

    Everything is a priority and nothing can come quick enough. CEO makes all decisions - little to no input from management or contributors. Culture of fear and demands.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to begin thinking more strategically instead of knee jerk reacting to competitors and empowering others for decision making and prioritization.

    Pros

    Great discount on service and there a lot of employee-only deals. Pretty descent pay in comparison to some companies

    Cons

    Extreme micro managing from district managers, you get plenty of PTO but no time to take it. Constant lay offs and HUGE changes related to transferring employees between stores, relocations, etc.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to upper management would to be to treat all employees equal, sales reps get away with doing too much "shady" business. As long as the store is making money, the higher ups do not care what the consumer thinks!
