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

Pros

Lots of interesting things to work on if you are interested in mobile technology
Some real experts work there, but they are hard to find (worth it though, they make all the difference)
Being in the Bay Area, far from KC, is great : -)
Even after many terrible strategic decisions (merger, technology choices, exec recruiting, ...) the company is still around!

Cons

Kansas-based middle management of very uneven quality, some extremely poor
Promotions are a real challenge when you are not in KC
No culture of cooperation between organizations

    Pros

    Clean fast paced work place. Potential to make good money and benefit programs are pretty decent.

    Cons

    Poor company marketing strategies make doing the right thing for the customer nearly impossible. If your customer oriented with a conscience this may not be the right fit.

    I have been working at Sprint full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, benefits and pay. However that may be for a limited time only as they continue to layoff employees.

    Cons

    Senior management has not had a clue since the merger with Nextel in 2004, noted as the 2nd worst merger in business history. They have been trying to cut their way to growth and success ever since. Now the company is run by the Japanese company, Softbank, who does not understand the US business arena, as proven by their 2 previous failed attempts to enter the market (e.g. Ziff-Davis).

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue.
