Pros

People are generally friendly and pleasant to work with; desire to keep things not overly complicated and be bogged down in complicated procedures and processes.

Cons

Small town Louisiana executives running a major corporation. Small company perspective not appropriate for the size and complexity of the entire corporation. Headquarters in Monroe, LA and salary structure limiting in terms of the talent at the senior executive level.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Joined company when Qwest Communications. Typical fortune 500 environment, internal restructuring every few years. Opportunities to advance if you keep your ears open and are willing to move. I worked for the enterprise business unit (based in Denver). If you wanted upward mobility, in many cases you would have to move there (not always, but depended on your position). 3rd largest telco, good product sets, upgrading internal support systems for sales professionals. Using Salesforce and Miller Heiman sales training. Competent product management and support. Not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    Left company after the acquisition (Centurylink acquired Qwest). Centurylink CEO came up through the ranks as accountant, CFO, then CEO. Very numbers driven. Research revealed same MO when acquiring other companies; SOP for first year, then downsize workforce and rebalance salaries, reorg. Not saying that's not a good approach for overall business, but employees need to beware and be positioned well.
