    I have been working at U.S. Cellular full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work, quotas are very manageable, great place to learn if you have the right sales manager and store manager.

    Cons

    network quality is good, belief plans a great idea but allow customers to leave without penalty. Losing a lot of customers because of inability to get the Iphone. New LTE networks is taking a long time to roll out and staying competitive in the Chicago market. Prices of plans and phones are the same as Verizon but without the latest phones or the LTE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving up depends on whether your manager will work for you to move up. If you have you a manager that will work to get you recognized you can move up quickly otherwise be prepared to connect with the area managers to get your name to them.

    I have been working at U.S. Cellular

    Pros

    Good culture, Supportive and effective leadership. Lots of programs for self-development - personally and professionally. Us Cellular offers on e of the best plans in the industry and customer satisfaction. Every day is different.

    Cons

    Phones are not as competitive compared to competitors in terms of variety and style (most phones are out dated). Equipment pricing is not competitive and no attractive promotions offered like other carriers during minor events (father days , Mothers day, Labor day), There aren't any work related downsides. Company has cut down on various expenses due to the market conditions. Overall outlook looks very sold due to senior management knowing what they are doing in the current recession.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need better phones and pricing on equipment to stay competitive.
