    Benefits are not to bad. Pay has gotten a bit better.

    No raise. No Pension anymore. Too much work for the pay vs. hours expected to put in. Burning out supervisors and some are quitting. Not a career, just a job.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    A Paycheck
    Health Insurance
    Good employees
    Working with cutting edge technology

    Cons

    A culture of good ol boy (though it includes women) sr management that does not listen to the highly experienced middle managers and most importantly line employees
    Lack of trust by sr management in middle management and employees as shown by their inability to delegate decision making outside of the VP level and above.
    Apparent confusion on where to focus resources. Seems like we change strategic directions on a monthly basis wasting time.
    Poor compensation practices.
    Key talent has started to leave the company and more will follow as the economy improves

    Advice to Management

    Embrace modern management. Your people are smart and capable. Trust them. Give them the ability to manage their departments and make decisions, including approval of financial expenditures typical of departmental managers for large corporations. Enable them to execute on a CLEARLY defined strategy and CenturyLink will succeed.
