Salary ranges are wide with entry level bands going from 20,000 - 60,000. Higher level positions can go from 40,000 - 140,000 - this gives the company the flexability to approve salaries as needed.

Benefits are decent - there are 5 or 6 medical plans, a vision plan, 2 dental plans, life insurance, and disabililty (both short and long term).

Other benefits include "discounted" merchandise from participating vendors, but this usually is not any more discounted that you receive as being part of AAA, the Hertz Rental club, member of Geiko, other other simlar affiliations.

The nice benefit offered is that you can have up to 12 phones at $15 per month (plus taxes). The employee is financially responsible if the owner of the phone defaults, but that's not a problem if you only give them to those you trust. Sprint also offers a higher plan - $30 per line - for people you don't want to be financially responsible for.

Sprint offers a bonus paid 20% quarterly and 40% in the 4th quarter of the plan (February) based on company goals. The goals are difficult to reach and require the whole company to move together on high level goals (churn, cost savings, income, etc...) - it's tough to have an individual or group input on the bonus so you're basically along for the ride. (In 2006, no bonus was paid. In 1Q07, we hit our bonus, but it is guessed by employees that in 2Q07 no bonus will be achieved).

Other than that, there are no discoutns or special treatment for employees - we can't even get through to customer care any quicker than regular customers. One of the few benefits not offered elsewhere is the phone benefit (12 cheap phones and a one zero dollar rate plan for each employee).

What about tuition assistance? I know they offer it, but is it a decent amount enough to cover one or two classes including books? I'm thinking of taking a job with them while I work towards a second major or grad school.
