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

    Pros

    Working for an employee-centric and fast growing company with invigorating leadership. I was surrounded by positive and inspiring leadership.

    Cons

    Business process was extremely slow and lethargic (as most large companies tend to be). Some groups within T-Mobile would deliberately undermine others and would seek ways to ensure failure due to a unfounded fear of successes in new niches that would highlight their oversights.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to close deals, try to address internal executive conflicts that work against company interests.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is great, culture is energetic. Leadership gets it for the most part and we're making an impact on the market.

    Cons

    Small work spaces at corporate office. Lagging significantly behind companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft here. Would love to see multiple offices around greater Seattle area to ease commute.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in facilities You're growing and doing well financially, so invest it back into your employees.

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

    Pros

    On a growth tear - adds millions of new subscribers each quarter. Supporting an increasing scale of customers without any additional increase in headcount is an interesting organizational task.

    Cons

    Exceptionally political - tensions run high between the network engineering, enterprise IT, and marketing groups. Appeals to authority will win arguments: "Abdul wouldn't like that" will make development project stop dead. In leadership roles getting promoted on the technology side basically requires someone to quit, get fired or die.

    I worked at T-Mobile full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and total compensation are comparable to the industry. The work culture is "let's get it done" and customer focused.

    Cons

    Work life balance is lacking in some parts of the organization. The concept of "do more with LESS - people, time and money would only go so far.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and prevent burnout.

    Pros

    A growing company with plenty of opportunity. Generous PTO and strong senior leadership. Coming from a flawed wireless model it's a breath of fresh air.

    Cons

    It's a fast paced environment and always changing. Not necessarily a con however you must be adaptive in order to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! The un carrier movement has been revolutionary and industry changing.

    I have been working at T-Mobile full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -People on our team genuinely care
    -Mentors are willing to support those who are committed
    -work is interesting and they seem open to ideas
    -lots of upward mobility for those who are committed and perform
    -good health benefits and compensation
    -decent culture
    -I have found this company to be a good worklife balance never working over 45 hours a week
    -Job seems stable, despite re-orgs and merger talks

    Cons

    -caliber of people here isn't up to scratch with other big players, but there are still some really smart people here
    -politics are pretty heavy at times, and organizations tend not to work together as well as they should, but it depends on the group. Technology specifically is pretty diverse and it's effectiveness, and there's plenty that swept under the rug. I don't see this as vastly different than other companies in the area, but one has to be OK with ambiguity and trying to boil the ocean at times
    -leadership varies depending on group, and middle-management often struggles, but I'm thankful for a good manager and senior leadership
    -parking in Bellevue location is very tough
    -General perks are less than other surrounding Seattle companies
    -compensation is slightly less than overall market, but I have found good compensation having come from consulting

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving opportunities for those two have performed and shown commitment on the team, and don't forget the fundamentals of leading people and building healthy teams
