    I worked at CenturyLink full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary is very good, work environment is clean and professional.

    Cons

    The sales management are not the best at nurturing the best out of their employees. You could have an excellent year, but have 2 bad months in a quarter and you're put on a performance improvement plan, a third month missing your numbers and you're gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop investing so much into the Miller Heimann sales training, it does not work. Of the 35 people I was sent to Denver training with, all but 11 were gone within a year. Then 7 more were gone the following quarter. Pay professionals to train SAM's as to why CenturyLink is as good or better than their existing carriers (AT&T, and Verizon). Here is a hint: if you're Sales Managers can't explain to you why CenturyLink is better than AT&T and Verizon, (in terms you understand and easily believe) -then RUN, don't walk, RUN to another opportunity.
