I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

great pay, benefits, vacation, freedom in my work schedule to make my own decisions. First level management seems to "get it" most of the time.

Cons

work in all kinds of weather and customer premises (don't watch Hoarders!) Sr Management is non-existant or so out of touch with reality it sometimes hard to believe

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    They have great ambitions and outlok

    Cons

    THey have a very difficult time exicuting well. When escalated and if you are important engough to them you will get your problems resolved but it take a lot of intermal management buy in towonder if this is a career ending escalation when they need to go higher. This causes problems to take way too long to resolve. Executive Managment is not respected but rather feared making them not as approcahable as they maybe should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that problems are solved by team work and co operation not blame. Enocourage people and support them to make aproiate decisons to satisfy customers and majke the escalation path claer and easy. Most times it is our issue denying it becuse you cannot find it mean you need more help.
