    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Superior skills and experience of the employees supporting the Network. -Corporate focus and support to support & deploy emerging technologies. -Passionate and dedicated workforce and leadership team.

    Cons

    For the employees in the former US West region, it has been an attractive acquisition target (Qwest, now CenturyLink), so as an employee, having to readjust the workforce and change systems and processes can be very difficult during the transformation.

    Advice to Management

    Invest time at the senior management level speaking to front line employees and management to identify where the strong & talented leaders are within the organizations...Then remove, or reassign to a non-manager role, the weak/ineffective leaders.


  2. Pay cuts

    Pros

    Kansas City is a great city. Lots of culture. Low cost of housing.

    Cons

    When CenturyLink acquired Embarq, salaries were drastically cut. 20% was very common. cuts as high as 30%

    Advice to Management

    Don't destroy company loyalty and morale by slashing salaries. Suspending raises is a better alternative.
