    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation and hours are reasonable, work environment is good and there are a lot of smart people.

    Cons

    For a "tech" company, they are stuck in the past and in the "good ole boy" way of doing things. IT's hands are tied by the business and it is difficult to innovate.


  2. "Overall a good place to work."

    I worked at CenturyLink full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The IT Services department implemented a results-oriented environment a few years ago that allowed employees to balance work and life.

    Cons

    There was always a lot of tension between IT and the business. It seemed leadership on both sides was locked in a perpetual power struggle.

    Leadership of the IT Services department decided that "developers can write documentation" and got rid of all the department's technical communicators.

    Advice to Management

    Never get rid of the STAR program! Reconsider your questionable decision that software does not need professional end-user documentation. That decision is going to come back and bite you.
