    Pros

    Good growth opportunities for career path

    Cons

    To many acquisition, mergers and re-organizational changes

    Advice to Management

    For re-organizational structures you need to streamline at the upper high hierarchy tiers. To many layers reporting to each other -i.e. AVP's reporting to VP's, etc.

    I worked at CenturyLink full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the pros at working at CenturyLink was the teamwork and vast experience and knowledge of my coworkers. It was a pleasure working with such an intelligent group of people. Also, the training classes and programs they offered were very good and helpful.

    Cons

    One of the downsides of working at CenturyLink was the lack of updated office furniture and equipment. Everything was old from the cubicles, carpet, copy machines and faxes. CenturyLink could spend some money to improve the office aesthetics.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to provide a career mobility program within the company. Many of my former coworkers were employees for 15 plus years in the same role. The opportunities and pathway to move around and up through the company was limited.
