    Great Company to work at before Merge with Sprint

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Warren, NJ

    ProsFree 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementBring back to the good coffee, the cups, silverware.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great place to work is if all you want is a job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Warren, NJ

    ProsFun people to work with. Free cell phone service. Good pay, but must negotiate upfront or else not good. Ability to work from home. Dan Schulman is a great person to work for and if it was not for his desire to lead a company from NJ, then I believe all NJ Virgin Mobile employees would have been laid off when Sprint purchased the company.

    ConsManagement is poor, no good leadership that can give direction. Raises and reviews are done poorly, no chance to every give feedback to upper management. Little promotions are given. Can be a very stressful work environment if in the wrong department. Poor communication, things are often found out through the rumor mill than through proper channels.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet new management, people who can manage people. There is such great talent at Virgin and they will lose it all. Motivate your employees and give them a reason to work hard. Raises are important - so yes a 3% or less raise might mean only and extra $50 or so, but to you upper management that might mean nothing, but to use worker bees $50 can go a long way in this economy.
