"I worked for CenturyLink fka Qwest for 12 1/2 years. The company culture is of a family first orientation. The pay and benefits are very good. You are expected to be at work on time and be on call as required. Answering your phone at any time is required but this is typical telecom. There is a generous bonus plan as well. Working with your manager to balance work/life demands is encouraged.No longer working there due to recent economy related layoffs.Sigh...."

"I had worked for CenturyLink for 20+ years, at the end the company's focus was more towards the stockholders then the employees. Was told at the first meeting with the CEO, after merging with Level 3, that he did not want the local side of the house, just want big business/enterprise. Not very welcoming from our new CEO."

"I worked for CenturyLink for 4 years with the first year being in a contractor role. Overall the work environment was pleasant and the company was flexible and understanding of the work-home balance. On the negative side there have been a number of poorly executed lay-offs. Many tools/libraries/languages were in use and this led to some occasional confusion in what dev-stack should be used for a particular situation."

"Great Company prior to recent merger acquisition. Great work/life balance. Company has gone through several rounds of restructuring. Mid-level management is great. Senior Management focus more on company politics instead of company growth/health."

"Want to work for Centurylink? Get ready for tasks that no one can agree on how to resolve, the least amount of information to perform your tasks, and on-call rotations that benefit superiors and absolutely devastate newcomers (with no pay for being on call). Would NOT recommend this job to my worst enemy..."

Account Director
in Livingston, MT

"CenturyLink is a big company with a lot of moving parts. Like most large companies their biggest challenge is integrating products, services and processes with the number of companies they have acquired. The learning curve is steep and success requires determination an perseverance. I averaged 140% of goal over my tenure, and the work can be very rewarding. My title and account module has changed frequently and reorganizations have found me with 5 different managers in 6 years, and in the most recent changes, my job functions were moved to Phoenix and Seattle, and my position eliminated. It is a hard and sometimes harsh business. Being a publicly traded company, there is often conflict between what is right for shareholders, employees and clients."

"I have worked at CenturyLink for the last two years. I found the company to be consistently in turmoil with its leadership and development of products. Turnover is very high too. Internal accounting and payment of commission to employees is lacking and definitely needs to be resolved."
