    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has good benefits which it is trying to take away.

    Cons

    The Corporation is anti-union, micro manages, management is afraid of talented employees, thus promotes unqualified people to management, Century Link also fires employees for little reason and frequently, sets metric numbers at unreasonable levels which causes poor customer service by stressed out employees. This corporation is also anti-union and can't settle union contracts in a timely manner. The bottom line is all about numbers and little about employee satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go work someplace else.

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

    Pros

    It pays the bills for now.

    Cons

    Every year is a decrease in pay. Health insurance goes up every year (it is a self insured company) and a wage increase (if any) that doesn't even allow us to break even.

    Minimal discount on CenturyLink services for employees. Past employers gave company services away for free as a perk of employment. Zero perks here!

    A constant push to sell services. Technicians are technicians, not sales people, for a reason. Would you want a sales person installing your services? To get credit for a legitimate sale, you have to fight a flawed system for it. I’ve given up completely as it’s not worth the aggravation anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
