    I worked at T-Mobile full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When the T-Mobile values are followed, great opportunities and successes are seen. Years ago when I started the values were heavily emphasized and it was one of the best companies I ever worked for.

    Cons

    In the last few years all levels of upper management have changed. Clear emphasis of short term bottom lines rather than on long term gains when it came to IT infrastructure. This has led to a lot of lost business due to point-of-sale outages. Also the heavy usage of contractors and outsourcing, which okay in certain situations but heavy usage has shown the individuals have less vested interest in their work in general.

    Advice to Management

    Live the values. Invest in an IT infrastructure that you can be proud of and that is easily scalable. The worst thing you can do is hire a contractor or employee and expect them to be in that job forever without chances of advancement. This just leads to losses in the form of human capital and increased training expenses from high turn over.

    I worked at T-Mobile full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, Great pay, do well pick the hours you want, option to change schedules every 6 months

    Cons

    Sched change every 6 months, managers and leads are worse than the employees that get hired. Too many cliques form and favoritism over other employees. As with any call center its a high turn over rate and they let just about anyone in there.
