    Pros

    Great people at all levels that truly believe in what they are doing. The benefits to date have been fantastic.

    Cons

    The ongoing layoffs tend to put up a negative cloud. In 18 years at the company, I must have seen at the very least 8 or 9 wide layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a strategy and stick to it.

    4 rate plan changes in 1 year, things get very confusing and hectic - seem to be struggling to stay relevant in a very crowded cellular market.

    I worked at Sprint full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, work environments are good. Generally there is a good work / life balance. The company was fairly family friendly. Ability to have a long career at Sprint especially in the Federal sector. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Culture is in flux with new ownership / management. Tough to work for a company where product isn't valued in the marketplace. Hard to maintain enthusiasm in face of bad sales.

    I have been working at Sprint full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most managers respect work life balance. Benefits overall are good. Pay reasonable. Working remote is accepted practice. Culture allows you to work your job and not be micro managed.

    Cons

    Sprint is still trying to get back on its feet and in a growth mode. Network issues have not been fully resolved but is making steady progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue reductions in force are hugely demoralizing. Look at other cost reduction impacts before sending large numbers of employees out the door.
