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

Pros

The scope of the products and the network reach makes CenturyLink a solid player in the market. As the 3rd largest U.S. telecom company, there is a lot of room to grow which is a great opportunity for a sales person. Tenured staff make the job of the salesperson easier and more attractive for clients to continue doing business with you.

Cons

Recent M&As have slowed some things down. In a year or two, I predict smooth sailing. Sr. Management has been very good at listening to the issues and taking action on them. It's not easy turning around a cruise ship, but they're managing.

Advice to Management

Each market needs to be evaluated and analyzed individually for what is possible from a sales perspective. Some markets are capable of generating much more revenue than other markets depending on the business climate in that market.

    Pros

    Monroe based management team with a foundation built on Christian principles attempting to re organize an industry in decline into a self sustaining stable enterprise.

    Cons

    Over extended itself and does not have the leadership/ human resources available that are rooted in founding principles, seemingly failing to see the challenges it would face with the differences in managerial behaviors between CenturyLink and Qwest. CTL and Embarq were much more in line with each other in management style then is Qwest. With much of Qwest management maintaining bell system management behavior and not seeing CTL as being up to standards.

    Advice to Management

    If the Christian core is real, pray more for an understanding of the entire challenge you face. Replace leadership in Qwest starting at the VP level and up. Many of the Qwest upper management are master political manipulators and true intentions are difficult to ascertain. By showing their labor force they are serious about changing the work environment they will gain more favor with union represented employees. Encourage the local model and employee empowerment at the lowest organizational level possible.

    Pros

    CenturyLink offers great vacation and good benefits package. CenturyLink is a low stress company.

    Cons

    Qwest management seems to have great influence on the future of this company.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that CenturyTel bought Embarq and Qwest, CTEL was the company in the BLACK the others in the RED. Remember to stay loyal to your rural customers because without them this company would not exist.
