What It’s Really Like to Work at T-Mobile
A newcomer on Glassdoor’s best places to work, T-Mobile is no stranger to other accolades: its CEO has been ranked among the highest-rated CEOs for three years running, and it has scored an overall rating of 4.0 on Glassdoor. Want to work there? Here’s the real scoop.
Employees of T-Mobile have rated its benefits and perks on Glassdoor with a score of 4.4.
As you might expect, when you work at a cell-phone service company, you get awesome cell-phone-related perks. One former employee wrote, “the cell phone perks are great, as you get 75 percent off your plan.” But perhaps even better, the employee added, is that “you also receive stock options, which mature after 12, 24, or 36 months, depending on [your] title. [And] the vacation you receive increases every year, which ends up being a lot of vacation after 10-plue years—I had roughly 28 days of PTO, not including holidays.”
What’s more, another former employee says that T-Mobile’s staff gets “benefits including great health, dental and vision insurance, flexible spending, childcare subsidy, life insurance and disability benefits.” In fact, the employee wrote, “during the time I was working there, [T-Mobile] provided … tuition reimbursement, paid time off, and more.”
According to one current employee, the culture at T-Mobile is “laid back,” with “good people—especially in HR.” A former employee touted T-Mobile’s ability to show deep appreciation to its employees, writing, “the company takes the time to invest in valuing their workers.” In other words, the people here seem to really want you to succeed.
Plus, did we mention that T-Mobile’s CEO, John Legere, has been ranked among the highest-rated CEOs for three years now? He’s got a 96 percent approval rating from employees.
