Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The salaries are competitive and the benefits are diverse. Processes are acceptable and the balance given between work and personal time was positive.

Cons

No growth potential, no recognition for a good job done, very bureaucratic, employees at company are chosen based on political reasons and not on ability (thus some very bad individual contributors, managers, and executive level people remain), in-fighting between legacy Nextel and Sprint employees, zero culture, lack of employee engagement / empowerment, one bad CEO after another, lack of trust, no risk taking.

Advice to Management

Dan Hesse needs to be replaced as well as any individual that is in a leadership position that still has attitude issues towards legacy Sprint or Nextel. Try to actually do something innovative rather than saying something is when it isn't (i.e. Simply Everything is Simply Old-Hat). Be a leader in the field instead of a follower.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Sometimes the workload is minimal and you could pretty much relax in a laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement are few. Work can be frustrating and management is not responsive. Company is stingy about raises. However given the state of telecom and Sprint in particular it is unlikely that anyone gets a big raise. A lot of people are just hanging in there because of the economy. Some of the rest have no marketable skills to go anywhere else. No wonder Sprint is in a bad shape.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat people nicely. Middle management is just not up to the task.


  2. "Satisfied so far!"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    If you know how to work hard and promote yourself, you can be very successful. Great atmosphere, and I've had great support from upper management in the past. It is great to work for a company that you can believe in!

    Cons

    Work/home-life balance is very hard to obtain. Lots and lots of changes all the time make it hard to apply yourself to a specific area of improvement. Benefits are being removed and raises have been frozen for a few years.

    Advice to Management

    If people do not know how to manage properly... teach them how to manage correctly or replace them.
