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

    Pros

    Benefits...that is it!! Other than that not alot to say positive about the place. I got fired when on FMLA and my daughter got very ill. Ran out of vacation for them to pay me, so they canned me just before my anniversary!!!

    Cons

    They expect alot even from the people that have worked there longest and have bad months here or there. They don't care...they'll fire ya! Not to mention they like to do the firing just before people have an anniversary!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really??? You claim to be the best, then why don't you treat your employees like they are THE BEST???!!!

    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They seem to be on solid financial ground, at least for now.

    Cons

    They're in over their heads. They cling to the old, small company models and don't know how to be a large telco. Upper management is a Good Ol' Boys network and doesn't listen to the industry expertise of some of their newly acquired VPs from Qwest. They're also exceptionally cheap. Pay is not very competitive, benefits are only so-so, and they have draconian expense report policies. The work atmosphere is not healthy, and morale is universally poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start acting like the #3 phone company, move out of backwoods Monroe, and acknowledge that you need to attract and keep good talent.
