Current Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Maplewood, MN

I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Retail Centurylink is all I can personally vouch for, Union based position, Competitive Pay, fantastic Benefits.

Cons

Poorly Managed, little to no future outside of retail department, No development, exceeding goals only bring hefty increases the following month preventing you from ever making a substantial commission. Direct Management are less qualified than reps and are often only in the store 10-15 hours a week

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Coach, Develop and Reward successes. Put steps in place to advance or promote

    Current Employee - Pricing in Denver, CO

    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    better than not having a paycheck

    Cons

    Upper management completely out of touch; can't live on a Monroe salary anywhere else in the country. Values are a joke as not everyone in the universe is a Christian.

    Top heavy management at Savvis - everyone is an SVP or VP; they are very defensive of this as about 1 in 20 are actually qualified - silly frat boys. They are arrogent now but will be jacked over just like Embarq and Qwest employees

    All competent, respectable Qwest managment took the money and ran last spring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    what's the point?

    Current Employee - Field Technician in Columbia, MO

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

    Pros

    I still have a paycheck

    Cons

    Poor upper management skills; unaware of front-line issues; do not want to compete (spend ) with cable companies in certain areas; no pay increases in 4 years; more expensive healthcare costs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to live by the unifying principles that are presented to the workforce; listen to the front-line personnel about issues with customers; lose some of the levels of management that are redundant and allow trained personnel do their job; more training would be nice, also.
