I worked at CenturyLink full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Fortune 500 company and third largest in the US.

Cons

I went through the merger of Qwest with CenturyLink.
Their communication during the change was poor and because of this the people who were doing most of the work were left in the dark and felt frustrated and unsure of their position . They do not manage change well.

Advice to Management

Act like you care about the individual, even if you don't.

    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This Company Offeres Competitive Pay and incentives for its associates. Unlike others I;ve worked for who would let a department go on the fly to save by restructuring this company does exceedingly well. The CEO is wonderful aswell. Though like most conmpanies that have hick-ups and financial adjustments that impact the employees, Centurylink does well to minimize any collateral damage on associates and communities alike, that itself makes me proud to be apart of their team.

    Cons

    Centurylink like most companies at this time undergo financial changes to compensation and as a part of the retail sector. It has become increasingly difficult to maintain the quotas set by centurylink in part due to this economic situation that some refuse to acknowledge.

    Advice to Management

    While companies have a responsibility to the Shareholders, you have a responsibility to us aswell. please restructure your quotas to flow with the economic trends. Certain Locations struggle to compete against competitive products that offer more for less. Therefore selling services of half the calibur that the competition use is an accomplishment in itself.
