Pros

Great people; free phone service; telecommute.

Cons

Limited advancement unless you are are VP or better. Still has many attributes of an RBOC. Salary is below industry standards, reducing health care and increasing costs of healthcare for employee. Very hard to move between business units.

Advice to Management

Employees remain uncertain of where Sprint fits with its competition and that dampens employee and public commitment to the company. Provide more competitive salaries and provide better opportunity for Sprint employees to be mentored in other business units.

    Pros

    Co workers were great to work with. Benefits and work location were good. Management at Corporate Level was excellent.

    Cons

    Very hostile work environment. Management at regional level was threatening. Vacations, PTO, and STD were seen as "dangling carrots" if you made your numbers, not benefits for doing your job. HR seemed receptive to your needs until the issue went to management - then you were "labeled" and forced out of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is great and seems very capable. Regional Management needs some serious work in all areas from HR issues to coaching at the lower level. There is rarely positive feedback - only backhanded comments.
