    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.

    Learning a lot of different things. Decent schedules, good benefits. Had option of working from home. family atmosphere. Enjoyed the opportunities of moving around in the company.

    Cons

    Some departments are rigid with schedules. Some management were inconsistent in what they delivered to their employees. Also had to be mindful of personal life conflicting as most managers frowned upon it

    Pros

    Great people and friends. Not overworked.

    Low level management inadequate. They don't produce, just want status so they can look good. Headquarters will be gone in a year or two- merger looming. Employees will be looking for a job soon.

    Great people / peers. Early days saw great inovation & discovery. Sprint was top of the heap.
