    I worked here when it was Qwest. They treat people very well. It's a tender trap.

    Former Employee - Facilities Specialist in Seattle, WA

    I worked at CenturyLink full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Superb benefits. Everyone brags about Boeing's benefits. Qwest had tuition free and I got an art degree. Another employee went to the Clown Academy in Spokane and got a 'degree'. Qwest
    worked with me to be flexible in my hours, to go to school. Qwest gave me a pension AND a 401K and
    medical that was not taken out of my paycheck - just a small co-pay. All that and I worked my way from the bottom position (Operator), to a top position (Facilities Specialist) before I was 40.

    Cons

    People feel very confident about job security and almost everything is based on seniority. It's all about your TOE (Term of Employment) date. Also, the managers can get real snotty about petty stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on petty stuff and reward the employees who work hard by trusting and respecting them instead of monitoring and spying on them.
