    Former Employee - Product Manager  in  Overland Park, KS
    Former Employee - Product Manager in Overland Park, KS

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, fast paced environment, great co-workers.

    Cons

    Company culture changed for the worse when company merged with Qwest...lost sight of unifying principles due to filling too many senior positions with Legacy Qwest leadership. No opportunity for advancement. Many lay off's are happening as company tries to fill more and more jobs in Monroe, Louisiana.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you cannot utilize employees in other areas before laying them off. Some very talented people with a lot of knowledge about the business are losing their jobs in a very bad economy rather than moving them around to fill current vacancies. Remind yourself of the "unifying principles" on a daily basis and start practicing them again.

    Former Employee - Supervisor  in  Phoenix, AZ
    Former Employee - Supervisor in Phoenix, AZ

    Pros

    Excellent "local" business models
    Business committed to exceptional key values
    Making a strong effort to use promised based management company wide
    Very good products and services, competitive in the market that I worked in
    Committed to superior customer experiences

    Cons

    My center leadership was not as committted to company values as I think they should have been
    Many managers of the business give lip service to the company values as demonstrated by their actions or lack of actions may be a better term
    Management could not or would not give me a reason why I was selected to leave the business
    In my case, there was no transition, I was informed of the decision, signed documentation and walked out the door

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what is "right" even though it may be difficult. In my case, let there be a transition, let me speak with my team and peers instead of simply ending my employment and having my personal possesions packaged and shipped to me.
