Thread regarding T-Mobile layoffs

Legacy Sprint Market Directors...

You would think that instead of bringing them over and letting them micromanage every little thing like they did when they were at Sprint, they would sit them down and tell them those days are done. Nope, gotta be up sending people Slack messages and emails at 7 in the morning and jumping in on every conference call they possibly can.

You fortunate few who still have a Legacy T-Mobile MD, I envy you.

A mother in labor accidentally boo booed while giving birth to a legacy Sprinter. When she looked down she thought she had twins.

A legacy Sprint guy and a T-Mobile guy leave a town hall at T-Mobile arena.

The T-MO guy approaches a waiting taxi driver and asks how much will it cost to drive him back to his hotel.

The taxi driver replies, “Five dollars.”

The legacy Sprinter interjects and says to the taxi driver, “How much if I join?”

The taxi driver replies, “Five dollars.”

The T-MO guy looks at the legacy Sprint guy and says, “See? I told you, you are worthless.”

I never understood the Sprint employee hate before. Now I work with some of them. I'd rather be talking to a dog than have one more conversation with them. Complacent, entitled, and self-diluted.

"No ticket, no issue." Yeah, when you wait 7 days to look at a problem, someone smarter than you probably already fixed it.

Oh, ok. The resume's you are receiving must be from external applicants, because everyone internal knows what's really going on. Many TMobile employees refer to themselves as a color and call it culture. Magenta? Is it pink? Is it red? The ad agency likely doesn't have the heart to ask who picked this color?! And does "swag" saturation equal fake it till you make it? Stop.

Step by step instructions may be required as execution is difficult with over engineered processes, countless Senior this and Senior that assigned to everything, all hands and webcasts constantly to talk about what's going to happen. Talk. Asking for instructions often points out that the requester is clueless.

The corporate virus? Oh ok. How interesting. Magenta (see what I did there) is supposed to make it all better, right? Don't be like the loud guy in the bar...who talks tough until you get him home and realize all you have is a scared, weak, big talker ready to blame everybody but...well you get it. It's like the dog that catches the car. Now what, blame the car?

Everyone knows this was a spectrum play. I hope it works. Do you by chance know when the severance packages will start? Peace.

Sprint folks are the worst. T-Mobile acquired a failed company, Sprint, and then put Sprint’s failed management in charge of critical operations.

Sprint managers referred to themselves as the “customer” to their own employees and colleagues.

The focus was not on what is good for the company and its customers but focused on the internal, self-appointed, managerial “customer”. Ask anyone who worked in Overland Park HQ or the Reston campus if this is true.

Legacy Sprinters are the corporate virus. I immediately discard any resume if I see the word, “Sprint”. I know the candidate will be a lazy, entitled, sub-par employee who requires step-by-step instructions on how to do the simplest thing.

The most successful thing T-Mobile has ever done was failing to get bought out by AT&T.

T-Mobile is desperate. The only opportunity for growth is to slam unwitting customers with products and services they don't need. Very predatory. Congrats you're approved for zero down lets max out your credit. lol

That's me. I'm that guy. I don't know why I'm still here. I assume most people are like me, just waiting for that call and severance. I've been here 15 years, pay me to leave already.

Horrendous. Every field mgr for tmo, legacy Sprint, and Metro - they ALL need to go. And fast.
All anybody is doing at this point is looking up 6 gazillion "reports" and getting in everyone's way. Bye to ya ALL.

I would argue that anyone above a mobile expert (or equivalent) is obsolete and can be replaced by a minimum wage entry level employee.

Tmo lost their culture. Legerdemain took it. What is Sieverts culture? Sprints sucks too. The industry itself lost its culture. Your just another carrier. Nothing special...

You are spot on, the Sprint directors are TRASH and are not on board with TMO culture
