    Pros

    Most of the non-management technical-level people are decent and hard-working, competent and intelligent. If you like ultra-complex systems, this is your place.

    Cons

    - It's high-tech whack-a-mole every day, for very long, stressful days, nights and weekends.
    - Leadership, communication, and follow-through on high-tech projects is almost non-existent.
    - If you're new, there's no training or orientation, it's sink or swim, and the people who could help you are far too busy to be able to take the time to help you.
    - The systems are stunningly complex, with no overview documentation of business processes or systems interfaces. To figure out how some of their systems work would require you to read 200 documents stored in 20 different places, and then interview another 20 people because half the important information is only in people's heads.
    - Because there is such a disdain from tech management towards the business side, millions of dollars are wasted every year on frantic disorganized and chaotic projects that end up going nowhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - If a certain set of managers and architects get an absolute "FAIL" on their last few projects, don't give them another multi-million dollar project
    - Specifically, the claims made by the architects of the Lion project as far as business benefits are delusional. Anyone who has a passing familiarity with hi-tech knows that if you ADD complexity to an already mind-boggling complex system, it doesn't get faster or better? If there's no accountability for the architects of major projects that fail, epically, every year, then CenturyLink deserves to fail, and be bought out and cleaned out.
