Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Well funded, while moves slowly - is making innovative steps.

Cons

In spite of their slogans, they still tend to want to throw cheap labor at a problem rather than systems investment. Upward mobility eventually leads to Monroe, LA - not a place I'd want to live.

Advice to Management

Clearly articulate vision and strategy, embrace Agile / Lean management principles, which will drive empowerment of the rank and file.

    I have been working at CenturyLink full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some people love this company and stay their entire life, the group i work in is very well paid

    Cons

    the group i work for is run by an incredibly micro manager. poor leadership skills and employees are treated like kindegartners. zero work life balance, we are never allowed to work from home, even if there is a blizzard outside. horrible employer if you have a family.

    Advice to Management

    stop micromanaging and treating employees like babies
