Poor Leadership makes for Poor Morale!

Software Development Manager (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Qwest full-time for more than 8 years

ProsIt was a great place to learn the skills I needed to start a career somewhere more ethical and appreciative of their people.

ConsBetween the dishonest directors taking huge bribes for poor software purchases that they knew would never work in their environment to the outsourcing of all in state to jobs to India, Qwest screwed the American worked for years.

Advice to Senior ManagementPoor Leadership leads to poor morale. People do not enjoy their jobs at all and they definitely don't trust their directors, especially a couple of "Senior Directors" located in Denver that take huge bribes and then implement brand new broken version 1.0 software packages.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
