    Yes, they were able to pick and choose the stores they wanted and in their wisdom they chose to maintain a Radioshack right across the street from a pre-existing corporate store. Brilliantly efficient, NOT!

    Millennials don't want to go to stores to speak with some dimwit employee who knows less than they do trying to add TEP, cheap phone cases, and a leasing scam.
    Lol, guilty. But I'm much more knowledgeable than 99% of storefront employees in this company.

    You've got a great strategy to show compassion to the employees. Support them less so that their financials get worse which will induce more layoffs. That's a great way to support the employee.
    Yeah...I would suggest there is a new way. How about Claure taking a salary of the average Sprint employee. Make the other suits do the same...UNTIL...a profit is turned. Then take your 20 mil salary and stock after the job is done.

    Sounds innovative and refreshing to me! And in doing so come out and say the suits are going to pay for Sprint's blunders while our employees from the bottom up are more important now than ever.


    Sprint, Thanks for the free year!

    And even though you don't have the answers, apparently you do have the answers about how advertising ROI works on endorsements. Sure you do.
    I see Verizon and [email protected] advertising with average people or cartoons. Same thing with T-Mobile. No mega stars. Companies doing better than Sprint. Kevin Durant is going to fix Sprint?

    It's a fact what they did wrong. Everything I mentioned and then some. When you're losing billions year after year EVERYTHING they have done is wrong.

    How do you suggest Sprint force Marcelo or any executive to work there when they can freely go elsewhere?

    You let them go elsewhere. Then you hire people who want to stay put until they turn the tide.

    Who do you plan on hiring that will work for less than executive wages?

    Yes, that's correct. A list of stores slated for closure was released in early 2015 before the first tranches (of three) were due for closure. CNN Money had an interactive of which stores were affected. Either way, it had been planned along even before Sprint acquired the remaining stores which stores were going to get closed.

    Typical corporate way...taking a pay cut. Not innovative and refreshing...
    Each suit gets a tantō that they must use if Sprint continues like this.
    No bowing out, no resignations, no golden parachutes, no pay cuts, nor are we otherwise doing it the "American" way.

    Yea, if someone asked me to leave my company and said "Hey, leave your job and come work for us! We won't pay you the salary of an engineer, just minimum wage but we definitely want only the best engineers!"

    Yea, don't think I'll be leaving my data center anytime soon for that.

    Although this is an extreme idea, there is a lot to be said for performance based executive pay. Also, it's not uncommon for a CEO to take a voluntary pay cut. Hesse did at one point, I believe.

    Are you sure Hesse's wasn't a "forced" voluntary pay cut?

    Why doesn't Sprint just get out of its RadioShack situation? I'm sure that would save them money.
