I worked at Sprint full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Some very good staff, a lovely corporate campus, the potential to offer great services and excellent products.

Cons

Constant hiring of people just to pad for the next firing spree, the campus is in decline because of the staff hemorrhaging, incompatibilities between Sprint & Nextel post merger have rendered products confusing and needless complex, spinning off Embarq removed one of the biggest revenue streams and the most tenured and knowledgeable employees in a self inflicted brain drain.

Advice to Management

Build solid teams of competent people who know you intend to keep them and use them instead of fostering an unending environment of '"how long until it's me that's cut".

    I worked at Sprint full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When the company was Nextel we had a dynamic team that was committed to be the best in the wireless industry.

    Cons

    When Sprint bought out the company the innovative spirit was crushed.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of corporate culture. When decisions are made by committee you are in the downward spiral.

    I have been working at Sprint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free phone service. Benefits. A guaranteed 40 hours pper week.

    Cons

    Customer service can be hard at times. Bonus structures change very regularly and theres a lot of stats to hit. Its not a positive place to work but if you dont have a degree its better money than most jobs.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think management in house has too much control over how things are run. Its pretty clear how things are dictated from somewhere else.
