I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Union is still strong, local management team gets out of the way so I can do my job, benefits are ok but nothing spectacular, job stays at work. Able to move around and advance.

Cons

Constant shuffling of Directors, VP's, and business units each with a new direction. Bitter legacy CenturtTel people (they feel entitled to jobs because "they bought Qwest" even if they have far less experience running a global company. What worked for a department of 15 does not translate to success with a combined group of 200 people. Weirdo religion overtones. Benefits and pay are under attack. Everything is going to be contracted out.

Advice to Management

Assume the people doing the job know how to do it best rather than someone 1000 miles away. Metrics just for the sake of having something to measure are pointless.

    I worked at CenturyLink full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Team atmosphere, the best benefits that I have every had, pension

    Cons

    Goals are always changing. When you reach your goals one month they will continue to raise your goals until they are unobtainable in which case you will not have as much potential for commissions.

    Also, our regional manager seemed to change every quarter. Each regional manager would bring in a new set to goals. Since the regional manager changed so much, our goals were not consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Have reasonably obtainable goals.
