    I worked at Embarq

    Pros

    Embarq was a great place to work. The people were wonderful. Leadership (except for the CEO) was top notch.

    Cons

    The CEO and BOD sold out the employees to CenturyLink. CL culture was a sweat-shop where employees are not valued.

    I worked at Embarq

    Pros

    Very professional, flexible with work/life balance, room to advance, great benefits, friendly co-workers and managers, tuition reimbursement, decent recognition, seemed fair. So many more to list.

    Cons

    Not really anything bad to say other than the number of re-orgs which seems to be the norm. Re-orgs made sense however placed some in positions they were not qualified to be in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really. Since the company was sold and only a handful of employees remain at the "old" headquarters, it would have been nice to see the execs do more for the employees based in the KC metro area when it came to the sale.
