    I worked at CenturyLink full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only "pro" is that they had decent insurance benefits.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, lack of management support, unrealistic sales goals, revolving door mentalities, poor training, too many meetings, change in policies by the hour, and incredibly slow installation team and unskilled tech support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your employees off the leash, give them the supplies and support to do their jobs, and make the goals obtainable.

    The job started ideal 6 years ago, and when I left it was micro management hell.

    Pros

    Ever broadening company, in both acquisitions and product line, very ambitious.

    Cons

    Management attitude turned from competitively driven to nurturing, and nurturing smells like micro management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire sales pit bulls as managers, not cream puffs.

    I did very well, but there is a lot of red tape that gets in the way of order processing.

    Pros

    It's still a paycheck for now. It is getting better slowly due to attrition however more technical creative minds are needed to fill the vacancies. Hopefully CenturyTel will remove some of the (Analog) good old boys that have been here far to long getting network operation on the same page.

    Cons

    To many upper Managers are not Network Techology Master Minds, still in analog mode. Sales contracts have been lost due to the push for Nortel when the rest of the world is trained on Cisco. Were have all our Cisco Sales Engineers gone? More lay offs each quarter are coming. Union employees feel they are entitled no matter how bad the economic conditions are. ( Not my job! )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please investigate the on going ethical issues with management and vendors dating / relationships. Extremely out of control in Nevada. Seems various married management employees are dating vendors and other internal employees. Strange that these employee's were able to keep their jobs during the first round of layoffs.
