"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...."

"Worked at the company in 3 different roles over 4 years. Culture is toxic and unfortunately the company is very process-oriented, bureaucratic. The decision making is too lengthy and thus it takes forever for things to get approved and/or completed."

"I worked for CenturyLink for the past 4 years. The company merged with L3 and is a global leader in network services and expanding to new IT services like Security, Cloud, and Managed Services. The company is dynamic and wants to part of the global IT movement to become more digital. The company is working to transfer its image of a telecom/network company to a technology company. With any major merger, the company is going to go through a transformation stage where it aligns resources. The process has not been easy but the people working at CenturyLink are focused on making it happen. It is a culture that is focused on revenue obtainment and minimizing waste. It certainly takes someone that has the focus to work at CenturyLink."

"Benefits are good. Pay is average. Difficult to get promoted. Many managers are afraid to challenge certain de facto, archaic rules. Employees and peers are very dedicated. Many are a joy to worry with. Raises are small and sometimes non-existent. Overtime without pay is the norm for salaried employees. Lots of people remain for their entire career."

"Overall good company, except for the cancer, IN MY OPINION, which is many of the clique-ish K.C. folks. Lots of backstabbing, office politics, and general dishonesty I have come to expect from such a white-livered crowd of self-entitled urbanites. Maybe that's a Kansas thing and, I don't know, and perhaps typical of much of corporate America. However, I'm young, just out of college, and have a lot to learn. I just came in expecting friendly coworkers and lots of them seem so two-faced. Is it that way, everywhere? However, overall, the company is sound and pretty well-run, thanks to competent, honest, leadership in Monroe. Pay is fair, benefits are decent, and for telecom, I hear one could do a lot worse. I guess you got to take the good with the bad with any company. However, I wish management would address and rein in some of the negative atmosphere up in K.C."

"Really a great place to work! It's been really good for me coming from no experience to a whole host of knowledge in many different fields. The employees at this company are really great and I was always able to make friends and never really felt like I didn't enjoy going to work. Managers were always flexible and appreciative and most were very good leaders. The environment is laid back, but productive. The company mindset is also shifting to a more modern way of thinking, which I think will make it really shine."
