    Too bad EQ was purchased to the planation owners from Louisiana

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company, too bad they were "sold"

    Project Manager II (Former Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

    ProsVery 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.

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementNone 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Project Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

    ProsCompensation, work environment, professional coworkers, work / life balance, high tech projects, work was evaluated in two categories annually (either you did the job or did not).

    ConsVery political, constant organizational and process changes, departments don't work well together, not much opportunity for advancement if you're not on the fast track.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo

    Acquisition

    Manager PROG/PROJ DESIGN (Current Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

    ProsEmpowered to manage your business and make decisions on your own.

    ConsNo longer empowered with decision making authority. Almost all decisions no matter how trivial seem to have to be approved by the CEO.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow your employees to run thier business as needed. Trust them and pay them fairly.

    Limited communication kills employee productivity.

    Product Development (Current Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

    ProsEmbarq is a very flexible work environment with a focus on achievement, not hours - meaning that management is open to flexible hours and time off for family issues.

    ConsWe are currently going through a merger, and the flow of information about how it will affect jobs is very limited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore communication and better coordination between departments at all levels would help people accomplish their jobs and limit unnecessary work.

    Embarq still may be a good place to work.

    Technology Architect (Current Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

    ProsEmbarq has tried to provide a good working environment with good benefits. There are, of course, exceptions, however Embarq strives to maintain a high level of flexibility for its associates. Our benefits, while not the best, are very competitive and are often superior to other companies in the same industry and the local job market (Greater Kansas City area).

    ConsOpportunites for advancement are very rare. It is not unusual for an ambitious and capable assoiciate to spend several years in the same position. I believe our leadership has missed a few opportunities to streamline and improve our internal processes as a means for cutting costs (as opposed to layoffs alone).

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't carry unnecessary baggage (processes and applications) to the new company that will be formed after CenturyTel completes its acquisition of Embarq

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
