    Former Employee - Product Manager in Overland Park, KS

    I worked at CenturyLink full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

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

    Pros

    Considered a "top tier" telecom provider, many offices, fairly large company, base salary is standard with the industry, Miller Heiman sales training provided, telecom certifications available at no cost.

    Cons

    No stable leadership, constant revolving door (even at the top management level), no solid long-term career path, commission structure sub-par, no corporate post-sales support, very weak product training.
