Soooo glad I no longer work for sprint. What a horrific company. It was such a black day for all of us at Nextel when that will advised merger came to fruition.

Topics regarding layoffs at Sprint
I’m hearing there will be a decision made on National Retail by this Friday for lay offs. It’s funny that they laid off people on the indirect channel and not NR yet. I’m curious if anyone else has heard this.
At this rate Sprint will be small enough to be gobbled up by T-mobile another provider or call it quits. I doubt a lot of talented people will want to work for Sprint in this economy to help them get out of there hole. Continuing trying to free up... read more
Apparently people in the Finance organization are being notified today.
This is going on so much that people have coined a term, "Stealth Layoffs." Not just Sprint, it's going on everywhere the past year or so. Some say it seems like a coordinated effort by corporations to conceal layoffs and the true state of the... read more
I have been with the company through many layoffs and this one seems to be the most secretive of all. There is no communication and no transparency on what is happening. It seems like there is a ninja team of folks cutting people quietly out of the... read more
LAMs, ISSRs laid off in Michigan market along with some SOMs and POMs.
My team in OP of about 15-20 just got notified our positions were being moved to Reston and we were all getting let go at the end of the month. Bon voyage.
POTUS: I was just called by the head people at Sprint, and they are going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States... (Dec 26 2016) Source:... read more
KC Biz Journal has the story. https://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/news/2018/03/09/breaking-sprint-to-cut-500-from-op-headquarters.html?ana=e_ae_set1&s=article_du&ed=2018-03-09&u=xsWdLHVRnYvAxn5ijNkxrg0013a061&t=1520629850&j=80421061
we keep hearing they are coming anyone have any specifics?
Is it over yet several long time employees ( over 20 years) have been laid off already in the production support area. Anyone know what the total will be. Specifically in Meg's arena?
Do people not know about this site? I would like to hear what other people and departments are hearing. Are people concerned or just used to "layoffs" thinking they'll be hired back in 3-6 months? I also am hearing up to 30% of people will be... read more
I heard my VP say today that Sprint may layoff up to 10% of their workforce - retail sales is safe. No one else is safe.
Heard Sprint let go 10 of the regional Vice Preidents it brought in 18 months ago. I guess the plan to have 18 separate regions isn't working. Today it was announced that there would only be 8 regions. Would like to have their severance packages.
Why would you cut experienced legacy employees to cut costs? It's completely counterproductive. I'd pay good money for a leadership that realizes that experience is a good thing. Experience brings in more money than it costs and it will certainly... read more
i really wish sprint would start promoting from the inside. we have so many good people who know this company inside-out with experience and expertise to go with it, and yet they are never the ones who make it up the chain. nope, what we get are... read more
Sprint upper management is completely devoid of understanding what all the people under them are actually doing. That's the only way I can explain the unrealistic expectations and goals they are setting on us. My work week has turned into a nightmare... read more
Not sure what we are looking at now the merger is off the table. While the merger would have brought major layoffs through consolidation, in the end I believe it would have helped us survive. Sprint has been lagging with modern analytical tools and... read more
Time has come. Sprints integrity issue has shown the loss of customer base. Their customer service has caused a wind storm that has drowned them in debt but being possibly being bought by a great company that has a vision for the future.
It's been a long time coming. Way back in the 90's when I would be assigned for a contract.."oh s##t, Sprint!" First two weeks would be sitting around reading manuals since i had no userid. It was like trying to run thru molassas. People really... read more
Rumor circling that within the next month Sprint will be laying off NRAE, in part or in mass.
Heard that the layoff is going to mostly consist of national account executives. Anyone else hear this?
Sad news again. Unfortunately, unofficial discussions underway with T-Mobile aren't so unofficial. NDA agreements have been signed on both sides. It appears T-Mobile wants to take the parts of Sprint it wants along with the customers. Everything and... read more
A lot of other companies have the ability to work from home (American Express, Apple, Verizon, ATT). Can out customer service reps work from home? Seems like a better option than a layoff...
Sprint Stock is way up are we talking about possible Merger soon? If yes, who will be laid off?
Has Sprint tried to cheat anyone else out of their 2015 STI?
We all know they will not be making a commercial like Discover saying all calls are handled in the US - Sprint is going to sink I am sorry to say
Call centers in Denver, Rio Rancho, Hampton, Temple, Overland Park and Blountville all announced closures for internal care centers.
133 in OP
After over 20 years of dedication, blood, sweat and tears, I put Sprint before everything in my life (big mistake), bad health from stress over my job, overworked, anxiety attacks, depression. I was actually relieved to get my layoff notice this week... read more
18 years at Sprint and I've seen a lot. From the failed WorldCom merger to the failed ION product to the outsourcing nightmare with IBM to the Nextel deal and pretty much takeover. I've been outsourced then rebadged. I've been given salary increases... read more
Does anyone know how many IT ppl affected in Overland Park ?
Here's to hoping all you old timers get laid off today and full severance - you if anyone deserve your full year of pay - the others your time will come but will lesser benefits - sorry about that
More than 30 years with Sprint Business; joined back in the GTE-Sprint days AND got a pension (two actually; one with GTE and one with Sprint). Read that again: I GOT A PENSION from Sprint! Yeah. And they contributed dollar:dollar much of the time... read more
Sprint dropped 12 percent at the close in New York, to eliminate up to $2.5 billion of costs from their business.
Still not worth the paper they are printed on - I for one would sure like to dump what i have left. I would also like whatever drug Claure takes - if it were the truth all these layoffs would not be in the works. I also add customer service has taken... read more
Layoffs took place two weeks ago, nobody reported it - over 20 people were let go (that's all what I know, may be more than 20, my girlfriend was laid off)
