    I have been working at Sprint full-time

    Pros

    PTO time is earned quickly. Last years bonus checks were very good. Some employees allowed to work form home part time.

    Cons

    There are just too many layoffs at Sprint, raises are very small, if you happen to get one. Forced ranking being used to decide raises and bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Try to go a couple years without another massive layoff. Increase the opportunity to work from home more.

    I have been working at Sprint full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is frequently looking and hiring new talent for a variety of positions. There is more of a focus on diversity within the company. Sprint has been recognized as a top employer of veterans, offers mentoring programs within various divisions. The company is focused on growing the face of the company to more effectively represent the face of America.

    Cons

    Within the company there is still a glass ceiling for minorities. Working outside of Kansas City can make it challenging to network and connect with managers/directors who are the decision makers for promotional opportunities. Some of the decision makers are more reactive than proactive in instituting policy/process changes.

    I worked at Sprint full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Quality, high-achieving, passionate people. Potential for growth in many areas of the company. Sprint Campus in excellent location. Work is usually related to cutting-edge, exciting things.

    Cons

    Since the economy tanked, employees cannot get simple office supplies like notepads or pens. Yearly reviews aren't always in alignment with its corresponding compensation. The few bad apples aren't weeded out and really hurt those who are striving for excellence. Work/Life balance nearly impossible to achieve/maintain. Most people in my org were completely overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Properly promote and compensate those who are truly making an impact and weed out those who aren't. It makes great people leave. Also, when an employee shows potential to do more, don't pigeonhole them into a spot. Give opportunities when they present themselves. Recognize when your employees are overworked and hire more people to match the amount of hours being worked or just simply do less.

    Pros

    Easy Work if you like technology and don't mind getting rejected in sales.

    Cons

    hard to hit numbers when you don't try.

    Advice to Management

    management doesn't work as hard as a sales Representative, so its some times feel unfair when you hustling to hit numbers and management sits on their behind all day and point the finger.

    I worked at Sprint full-time

    Pros

    The flexibility and option to work from home was one of the highlights of working at Sprint. It was a great learning experience about how corporate America operates. I was introduced to the on-boarding process and getting access to the many main frames and programs I needed to do my job.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I came at a time of many transitions. The first was the expansion and upgrade of the network platform, which made it tricky keeping customers satisfied with their network experience. The other transition was Sprint was also bought out by a Japanese company investor and hence internal restructuring occured and I was laid-off.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees and always have their best interest in mind. Unfortunately, I came at a time of many transitions. The first was nfortunately, I came at a time of many transitions.
