    Continue to fight for promotions for known hard-working employees

    I worked at Sprint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my short time there, I worked with many smart, wonderful people. There was very good cross functional communications and I had an opportunity to interface with many different groups (Marketing/Finance/Legal/IT, etc).

    Cons

    HR systems are pretty much non-existent. Benefits are NOT good, especially if you have kids. Huge deductibles. Stock grants vest over such a long period that you'd be dead before they impacted your life. No systems in place for career development (or at least none made known to me).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your customers, ask them what they don't like about Sprint, and then do the exact opposite. This is how T-Mobile blew by you.


  5. "Better when it was NEXTEL"

    Pros

    Scrappy underdog. Everyone focused on trying to get better. Kansas is a cheap place to live. Long term employees are like family

    Cons

    Always trying to catch up, never enough capital to invest and really catch up. Trying to focus on too many things with not enough resources

    Advice to Management

    Find a Nitch and focus on it

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

    Pros

    Great vision, mission and culture. Employees are engaged and it's a Sprint family. Sprint is growing and a disrupter in the mkt place

    Cons

    Every company has challenges. Nothing to point out in particular. We sell, serve and support our important customers. We may not always get it right the first time but we strive to correct any issues.

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

    Pros

    My management structure from top to bottom is dedicated to my professional and technical development

    Cons

    Little to no opportunities to advance

    Advice to Management

    Pursue compensation parity across all organizations, identify real value provided by teams and compensate appropriately. Provide opportunities for those who excel to rise from within without having to do the "Sprint raise strategy", where you must leave the company for 6+ months in order to apply for and get a job that pays more (regardless of whether it's a higher position or not)
