I worked for Sprint for about 8 years. I was a Legacy Nextel employee. After the merger things got bad at the company. Nextel was attracting about 30,000 customers per month. When Sprint took over they drove away 80,000 customers per month. Its now 4 years into the merger and sprint is still loosing over 50,00 customers per month. Also, Sprint lost $911 million dollars in the last quarter (Sept-Dec 2010)
Anyway, After 8 years of helping customers and maintaining the companies customer satisfaction goal I was let go for not making the goal for 3 months in a row. Sounds fair? I was not offered a package. To be let go for not meeting performance goals for 3 months in a row after meeting them for 8 years was unfair
Sprint could have offered me a severance package, after all I spent 8 years working for them.
So you see? They don't care about you. Thinking about working for Sprint? Think again.
