Pros

CenturyLink offers great vacation and good benefits package. CenturyLink is a low stress company.

Cons

Qwest management seems to have great influence on the future of this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that CenturyTel bought Embarq and Qwest, CTEL was the company in the BLACK the others in the RED. Remember to stay loyal to your rural customers because without them this company would not exist.

    Pros

    Monroe based management team with a foundation built on Christian principles attempting to re organize an industry in decline into a self sustaining stable enterprise.

    Cons

    Over extended itself and does not have the leadership/ human resources available that are rooted in founding principles, seemingly failing to see the challenges it would face with the differences in managerial behaviors between CenturyLink and Qwest. CTL and Embarq were much more in line with each other in management style then is Qwest. With much of Qwest management maintaining bell system management behavior and not seeing CTL as being up to standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the Christian core is real, pray more for an understanding of the entire challenge you face. Replace leadership in Qwest starting at the VP level and up. Many of the Qwest upper management are master political manipulators and true intentions are difficult to ascertain. By showing their labor force they are serious about changing the work environment they will gain more favor with union represented employees. Encourage the local model and employee empowerment at the lowest organizational level possible.

    Pros

    Broad technical exposure, lot's of big data like challenges. Chance to help a business model turn-around. Fast paced culture in some parts of the business.

    Cons

    Unethical decision making by leadership, no real opportunity for career advancement. People in charge who don't have the requisite decision making frameworks to lead the business.
