Pros

Great compensation and benefits. Pushes you to achieve lofty goals.

Cons

Very stressful and hard to take time off in this role. 70+ thousand employees; you tend to sometimes get lost in the shuffle. Dealing with other internal departments can be frustrating.

Advice to Management

Try to achieve better interdepartmental communication and standard policies. Sometimes management roles out plans and changes quickly without fully thinking things through.

    Pros

    Solid company. Benefits are great. Good product to sell. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Made around $70K/ yr. Commission restructured. Now closer to $40K/yr. Quite a pay cut from an extremely profitable company!
    Company preaches Selling With Integrity but if you're not adding data packages to little old ladys' accounts, you are reprimanded or even fired. VERY shady. If a customer upgrades to a new phone that uses the same car charger and headset as the old phone, you are encouraged to sell them a new car charger and headset. I could go on and on....

    Advice to Management

    Remember a happy employee is a productive employee. I think it may be better to ENCOURAGE employees instead of THREATENING employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits, yearly bonus, discounted cell phone plan

    Cons

    I don't know where to start. The commission gets worse every month. They will take money out of your commission check if you discount phones for customers, or if you have too many phones returned. Their policies are not employee centric at all. Mandatory six day work weeks are the norm during certain times of the year. There is no work/life balance at all. Micromanagement is constant from all levels. It is the most stressful place I have ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    Be more in touch with your front line employees. Things look great on paper but affect people's lives and paychecks in a serious manner.
