Cons

    Pros

    Sprint has good potential if they make necessary changes in management

    Cons

    High turnover rate for customers, employees and non-employee agents

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By ignoring its customers Sprint shows great arrogance and, like the saying goes, pride comes before a fall. Not only that, but Sprint also fails to realize that their multitude of unhappy employees and call center agents also account for a very large majority of lost customers threefold : first, the employees and call center agents will not become potential customers if unhappy and treated poorly; second, if they are already customers then they will likely terminate relationship; and last, word of mouth for potential customers becomes impossible when workers are unhappy. It's like they consider the two to be separate when, in fact, employees and customers are the same -- literally. The most successful companies recognize this wisdom and that is why they value and respect customers and workers alike because they know each possesses the great potential to become one in the same. And without one you will eventually lose the other. The most successful companies realize this and that is why companies such as Apple are leading the way. Apple knows how to treat its employees like gold and, in turn, they become loyal customers; and vice versa, the customers are so happy with Apple they want to become employees. Hence this makes for a very happy Apple environment. It is truly a shame that Sprint does not realize this and it is the reason why turnover is so high. Instead of making improvements in management they blame the help -- which, in reality, is like blaming the customers. And then they wonder why they have amongst the highest rate of lost customers. It's like a dog spinning around chasing its own tail.
