I have been working at CenturyLink full-time for 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

    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time for 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.

    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company has a good vacation plan. The health benefits ae starting to get expensive.

    Cons

    The pay rate is average but no raises in the past 3 years. The are still trying to get out of debt and therefore are not adding staff we it's really needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management, continue to work the debt down and start paying some type of small quarterly bonus to the workers.
