    I worked at Virgin Mobile USA full-time

    Pros

    Free Soda. Snacks were only $.25 but now you have pay almost a 1.00 for items. Great Coffee and hot chocolate, cups and silverware. Management got to live and work in their home town.

    Cons

    at the time there were no Cons. Now in 2013 I see the company going under.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back to the good coffee, the cups, silverware.

    Pros

    It was an amazing company before Sprint took over, where employees weren't even allowed to use their titles.

    Cons

    Sprint in charge highly conscious of titles. Directors and Managers aren't supposed to mix. Sprint's old school culture ruined how cool Virgin used to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep changing the Sprint culture.
