    Pros

    Benefits, Leadership, A company that keeps it's Customers, Employees, and Owners in mind. Great benefits and excellent Time Off.

    Cons

    Ever Changing Business. Need to be flexible so it's not a job for everyone. Can be lots of turn over if someone thinks, 'I'm good at customer service' when it's not just customer service it's over the phone customer service.

    I worked at T-Mobile full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    When I worked there we had Good benefits, environment, salary

    Cons

    with new management structure employees are much less important than the bottom line. Closed US call centers to open new ones over seas, with no regards to the employees that helped dominate the JD Powers award for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the longterm benefits of keeping good employees than the short term cost savings of opening up new centers in cheaper environments

    Pros

    The commission structure is pretty good and the atmosphere was fun.

    Sales quotas are based on hours worked and would change at the end of the month. Not consistent for goal setting.

    I worked at T-Mobile full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone was incredibly welcoming and helpful whenever I had any questions.

    Culture was the best part. T-Mobile is all about being contrary relative to the other big carriers, the "un-carrier". And that sort of message is reflected in the employees, who can approach problems in more unique ways and tend to be less stiff than at other telecom companies.

    The hours are manageable on every level, and the work was stimulating. A great experience.

    Cons

    Time-off was always unpaid for interns like myself, without exception.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep interacting with the offices outside of Washington.

    I have been working at T-Mobile full-time

    Pros

    The culture and environment is amazing! You're allowed to be yourself and encouraged to challenge the status quo and do things differently. Your work matters and has an impact. We work hard, but have fun at the same time.

    Cons

    It's not really a con to me, but things move fast at T-Mobile and you need to be able to keep up and change direction quickly. There can be ambiguity especially with new ideas. You need to be okay with moving forward and not necessarily having all the information at your finger tips.
