Here is the bottom line: If legacy T-Mob employees what a viable and fruitful place to work you all better start getting rid of as many legacy Sprint employees as possible. Those employees are quite honestly a millstone around T-mob's neck. Seriously... Sprint employees should be treated as if they have COVID for life, get rid of them ASAP... if you don't do this legacy T-Mob people you will rue the day! YOU WILL RUE THE DAY!

If you add up the value of every legacy Sprint employee PLUS $0.75 cents it still would not equal a dollar.
A lot of people big mad in here. I wonder how many legacy magenta managers are dealing with a yellow dm and now have to have actual, measurable goals and not just f––t out sunshine and rainbows.
What is the difference between a piece of dog manure and a legacy Sprint employee?
One offends the senses of sight and smell, is avoided, repulsive, and serves no useful purpose. The other is a piece of dog manure.
Sprint employees are like Morgan Freeman’s institutionalized ‘Shawshank Redemption’ character recently released from prison. They request permission to use the figurative bathroom. Even their top leaders are afraid to make the smallest of decisions except by committee.
Legacy Sprint employees are the worst I have ever seen. This is also due, in part, to the complacency caused by their outsourcing nearly every telecom function to third party companies making Sprint managers the entitled “customer” instead of the actual telecom service provider.
Get rid of these useless people already.
Fair is telling the FTC and other “Merger” approving bodies about accepting Sprint employees and adding jobs, and being jobs positive day 1! Lee. Eye! Don’t give me COVID either... id--ts still went out and bought phones. I will leave it at this, the industry is dead, rot in its coffin. I don’t care. Just writing...I see a revised guidance in your future
@5cdr+1amiD8xK you crack me up with such a load. You completely whitewash what Sprint and it's employees did to Nextel. Sprint's chickens came home to roost so to speak and Sprint should get the same exact treatment they hoisted upon Nextel. Fair is fair is it not?
I truly don’t understand the T Mobile employees who bash the Metro and Sprint employees. You are the problem with why your company will not have future success. Here is why. If you went to work for Verizon and or Atnt they would probably say all the negative things about you that your saying about Metro and Sprint employees. Why are you working at T Mo? Because you were not professional enough to get into the other 2? They would look down at you because they may have a perception of you and your business practice. They may think your just a watered down 2nd rate rep/ manager/ etc. How does that make you feel. You probably want to respond and bash me. When in reality there are good and bad workers every where. Maybe their managers did not challenge them enough? May they do suck. But stop acting like you are so smart and everyone else is just stupid. The quicker you accept your co workers acquired by tmo from sprint, metro, business department, cable t vision, or any other person (who face a possible lay off like you, don’t kid yourself) and the quicker you worker together as a team, the better All Your lives will be. Work together. INCLUSIVITY which is the c––p your company preaches. Reminder again, You are not smarter than everyone else. Work at a different company and I PROMISE YOU, you will be humbled. Your not curing COVID, your selling phones and service to people who already have one. Think about it.
Sprint people are the worst. They can't wipe their a$$ without someone standing over them to give them step by step instruction.
The Sprint name is gone, so should the employees that worked there.
Post ID: @2wir+1amiD8xK you are a fool! Fact T-Mobile was unable to be granted SEC registration on it's own. T-Mobile did NOT meet regulations by the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission to go public. Whereas Metro PCS met this regulations and was a publicly traded company. T-Mobile USA only path to become a publicly traded company and not be sliced and diced by DT was to find a match that was publicly traded after the SES said no to ATT. DT wanted to dump T-Mobile USA and even go as far as liquidation of T-Mobile USA after the ATT rebuff. In walks Metro PCS.
Read to educate yourself. Bottom Line: Without the merger of Metro and T-Mobile USA Sprint would have bought T-Mobile USA and do exactly what T-Mobile USA is now doing to Sprint i.e. shutting it down and deleted the company name. It was the merger between Metro PCS and T-Mobile USA that allowed T-Mobile USA to be standing here it is today.
T-Mobile US, Inc.
SEC CIK #0001283699
I'm just mad that I still work with a clueless hack like @2wir+1amiD8xK.
Post ID: @2soo+1amiD8xK you are ill informed. Metro was in 14 States not cites. For example Metro basically covered most of California which is countless amount of cities.
The topic is legacy sprint employees should be dumped ASAP... I agree, sprint was a lousy company that outsourced it's entire engineering and operations to an over seas company... just really Un–American. Whatever Sprint touches goes to c––p!
Layoffs, you talking about layoffs! Are you kidding me. I just hope we can sell some phones tomorrow. Thank you Jim Mora
Ok 99 markets. Sorry
Every time you hear taxes and fees included, that was stolen from Metro. Even though it’s not a big deal, when you hear things like Netflix on us, where do you think that thought came from? Metro started the Amazon Prime which was a good try. It was different. Why did it take so long to change the metro brand name from Metro PCs to metro by t mobile. It was making money and Johnny L didn’t want to fix what wasn’t broke. He knew he was leaving. Him leaving was the worst thing that happened. He was good at culture. Your just one of the 3 telecoms at this point. Ask yourself this. How are you different now? BREAKING NEWS* T mobile is like the rest.
Metro didn’t have 66 markets at their closing in 2013. They were in Dallas, Atlanta, Detroit, LA, New York City, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Orlando/Tampa, Jacksonville, and Miami. That’s it. The brand expanded due to the T-Mobile network.
By the way, metro was not going bankrupt. They needed spectrum. They were making money. 10 million subs times 45 to 55 per customer. Even with that fuzzy math they were loaded. So please stop ripping on metro. Wish we had the old metro back. Was a GREAT company to work for if you did your job. Who is best right now. A. Atnt. B. Verizon. C. Un T Mobile.
@1sho+1amiD8xK Is a complete mo--n. T-Mobile, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, purchased MetroPCS through a reverse merger and brought the company public on May 1, 2013. At this point, T-Mobile USA became T-Mobile US, a publicly traded company and not a subsidiary of DT, but DT of course had majority ownership.
T-Mobile lost 2M postpaid customers in 2012. It started gaining postpaid customers in Q2 2013 after the Uncarrier campaign kicked off in March 2013. What changed? Legere and Sievert.
MetroPCS went from 8.9M prepaid customers to like 18M. T-Mobile went from 30M postpaid customers to over 70M postpaid customers prior to the merger with Sprint.
T-Mobile saved Metro. Metro did not save T-Mobile. Any of you guys who say otherwise are fu----g mo--ns. Metro was a sh---y little company on a shoestring budget. If T-Mobile didn’t buy Metro, Metro was done.
@jdh+1amiD8xK said “You were most likely talking to a "Legacy Sprint" employee. 80% of TM benefits employees came from Sprint. Just Say'n”
Nope. He was “Legacy Magenta” located in WA.
Post ID: @1zvh+1amiD8xK You are an I.D.I.O.T How do you think T-mobile became a publicly traded company? They bought Metro PCS as Metro was publicly traded. Federal regulators would not give permission for T-Mobile to go public so they has to buy a publicly traded company. DT was ready to sell off T-Mobile.
You frankly don't know what you are talking about. Go home and let the big boys play!
It's called "Metro by T-Mobile" The Sprint name is GONE, it's toast! There is NO more "Sprint"
Not true. And MetroPCS name is gone as of last year. Some small little regional company in ten markets did not save T-Mobile.

Sprint management was the worst I have ever seen. They literally had four separate financial committees to make one small decision and there were hundreds of decisions to make.
As someone posted earlier, the only management remaining were the rats on a sinking ship. If any of those rats survived to serve on T-Mobile’s senior management team, they will negatively impact T-Mobile. The same goes for legacy Sprint’s long-time, re-badged Sprint contractors.
Not a hater. Just honest.
Not true. And MetroPCS name is gone as of last year. Some small little regional company in ten markets did not save T-Mobile.
That’s not true. MetroPCS did not save T-Mobile’s bacon. John never said that publicly. He might have said that to a few of you behind closed doors to make you feel good. But that’s not remotely true. The break-up fee and spectrum from AT&T’s failed acquisition of T-Mobile... plus Legere and Sievert... saved T-Mobile’s bacon. Some small regional company in like 10 markets didn’t, that’s for damn sure.
Post ID: @1ayt+1amiD8xK "You were on the brink before all the acquisitions."
If you had a clue you would know that 1 - The merger between T-Mobile and Metro was a good merger and very few Metro people were laid off, or T-Mobile people for that fact. The fact is and John Legere even said so, Metro saved T-Mobiles bacon and ended up turning T-Mobile into more like Metro PCS then then the classic T-Mobile! This was a wise, very wise and good merger. 2- T-Mobile only acquired Sprint for it's spectrum assets, not it's people or the name. Notice the Sprint name is GONE... The etro PCS name is still there! The Metro PCS name will endure while the Sprint name is being sent to the bottom of the ocean where it belongs.
So smart acquisitions is smart business where Sprint did NOTHING smart. w-f is "wimax"... Sprint? Sprint took a company (Nextel) that was it's equal in every single way and torched it... Sprint is toxic and all the employees that stuck it out at Sprint did so just to hold a paycheck! As a former Sprint employee that jumped shipped many years ago it was clear, crystal clear....... Sprint and who ever was left there were just too d–b and unworthy to be employed by anyone else. As for me, I even left T-Mobile to go into the medical profession. I enjoyed every day I worked at T-mobile and loathed each day I worked at Sprint. The culture at Sprint was a hoodwink and a nod and wishful thinking they could even compete. They talked themselves into believing they were number 1 meanwhile the barn was burning with low skilled workers.
g-d forbid if any legacy Sprint people get any kind of power at T-Mobile!
The only safe jobs at TMO are specifically hr severance package specialists.
Think about this legacy Tmo loyalists. You were on the brink before all the acquisitions. That is the problem this culture created. A bunch of tmo people who think they are the elite of wireless. Yar not. You are a company that did do things against the grain. Now yar stuck. The paint has dried. Stop acting as if you are so smart and metro, sprint folks are d–b. This inclusivity message is not getting through from your leadership. Well I wonder why? Because they talk out of both sides of their mouth just to put on a show that they care. They care, about jacksons, grants, Benjamin’s, and Bitcoin. We promise to be jobs positive day 1. Lie. At the end of the story, if you are not making top brass money, then this is just a job, not a career. I was a bitter employee, because I was hoping they gave me a package sooner. Now you might not get a good severance... get out of the magenta, go look for green!
I worked for Sprint as a RF engineer for 7 years. I left the company to go over to Verizon 1 month before Sprint and Nextel announced what became the worse merger in world history. I can attest that the OP is dead on with their posting. All that was left at Sprint after the merger and outsourcing to E/// were the dregs of the telecom industry for the most part. Everyone with "talent" went elsewhere for employment. Only the rats were left on the sinking Sprint ship so-to-speak. The proof is in the "p–d'n"! Sprint basically was bankrupt when T-Mobile bought Sprint. It's beyond belief that anyone would want to keep a legacy sprint employee after the buyout. Send them over to Dish if you ever want a chance of knocking ATT off its # 2 position. Keeping legacy sprint employees within T-Mobile = #3 forever.
You were most likely talking to a "Legacy Sprint" employee. 80% of TM benefits employees came from Sprint. Just Say'n
lol if you think they’re not perfectly happy to have an influx employees who will do whatever shady s*it is necessary to hit numbers; also it’s got a built in excuse when customer satisfaction drops. “Oh, every company goes through growing pains in a merger.”
Wow...such bitterness towards Sprint. You have my sympathy. Also hate to break it you but T-Mob is just as incompetent as Sprint. I just spent the last 45 minutes on the phone with T-Mob benefits to try to decline COBRA coverage as I have coverage elsewhere. Not only was the representative clueless but also lacked empathy and compassion. It's bad enough that T-Mob laid off THOUSANDS during a pandemic but to be rude to someone who is doing their due diligence is totally uncalled for. Many have said Sprint employees were toxic but the same could be applied to T-Mob employees as well. T-Mob leaders lied to their employees saying there will be jobs for everyone. Like it or not, the former CEOs (ie: Legere, Claure, Masa, etc) threw all employees in both T-Mob and Sprint under the bus just so they can line their wallets. And now T-Mob wants to sc–w BOOST/DISH over as well. I feel sorry for anyone who was laid off.....especially now since they are planning on changing severance packages.
You probably needed more hugs as a child. It's ok. Have you ever considered, several people may be hoping for a package? Roll credits, then end? Then, it will leave for you (if you are not just a board troll) the company where group think masked as culture abounds. Where the un (reliable) carrier is really a name for who the h–l really knows just do something, anything (aka throw **it at the wall) and hope it doesn't break something else? We may actually want....the same thing. Good luck.
