Pros

People are nice and within small groups seem to work well together

Cons

Communication could improve. Feedback when there are performance issues could be improved. Instead of dealing with a problem and offering the opportunity for improvement management's way of dealing with the problem is just to fire an employee. There is not a balance in that response either since there are employees in other departments that have similar problems and they are just tolerated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your door and communicate better. Give an employee the opportunity to improve and offer them a chance to do it rather than to wash your hands of it and throw them out. Everyone deserves a second chance to improve themselves. Your employees are your best assets. Don't let a down economy harden your hearts and only look at the bottom line.

    Ok benifits, for now. Pay ok, for now, others in field get 2-4k more per year.

    No opportunity for advancement. Employees are not empowered to make decisions.

    Talk to lower level employees about ways to improve productivity.

    I worked at CenturyLink

    Pros

    I was working in a tech support capacity so the job was pretty easy. I supported their ProDSL product so it was fun to work with small and medium sized businesses. Though they have long since discontinued the product. The people I worked with were great as well.

    Cons

    Many management decisions seemed to lack common sense. Qwest was constantly changing workflow policies which meant constantly learning new policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The managers were generally good but had their hands tied by their bosses. Perhaps upper management should come down to the trenches and see how their products apply to the real world.
