'A modern miracle': Experts marvel at CDC data showing fully vaccinated make up less than 1% of COVID deaths.
In the beginning, it was nice to work here. Now I'm not at all proud to still be here. I did not want to leave for a long time, I had hopes that things would get better. And then at some point I lost all hope. In talking to my colleagues, it’s sad... — read more

I don't like how this company reacted to the new circumstances, even before the vaccine came out, nor now that we have the vaccine. I don't know how it was in other companies in the industry, did they more or less take the same strategy as our... — read more
The monthly IBEW newspaper just arrived in the mail and the headline is: SOLIDARITY THROUGH SAFTEY GETTING 'BACK TO NORMAL' Vaccines Protect Everyone on the Job So yeah the union is going to be pretty much useless in fighting the vaccine mandate. — read more
no layoffs right now Big Data, scale to scale, scaleable .scale-up, scale down, it's about scale. leverage that scale, it's a scale touchpoint.
I have colleagues who do almost nothing. I have nothing against that, everyone here works for themselves. However, it’s pretty annoying when these people talk about themselves like they are working very, very hard. Especially when they are speaking... — read more
What staff impacts will happen with this new Company? They are already visiting Central Offices.
My opinion is that most people will leave this company due to other issues, but I do not believe that many people will refuse vaccination at the cost of losing their jobs. Because, what are the alternatives for those people who oppose... — read more
I don't understand how some people here got to the position of manager, and especially I don't understand how they stay in that position. It is less and less clear to me how their work is evaluated here. Colleagues who were some of the best employees... — read more
So when it’s my time to leave the company due to the mandate that’s sure to come will I be able to keep my vested pension? I plan to let them walk me out and as I only have a little over 20 years can’t retire yet. No I’m not bitter it’s their... — read more
The VP of HR came out with the mandate in an email yesterday. Also a $50 per pay period health insurance surcharge will be applied to employees who are not vaccinated. I wonder if the surcharge will be expanded to include overweight employees?... — read more

Now that I'm leaving, I don't care what happens in this company or what the future will bring, but if there's any advice I can give, it's that you should never linger too long! Gone are the days when loyalty was valued perhaps a little more. I’ve... — read more
I left a CTL a few years back! Before I left, I ran many successful programs. When the new HR regime came in, I was told it was CR-P! If you couldn't track it under the new HR regime, it was not a valid program. If you are blue, green, gold, or... — read more
I took the stla package the company says I and in a temporary layoff. So I can't collect my 401k.
It's another way to cut employees.
But it seems to me that they are doing their best to get rid of such talented people who work hard. Why would someone who has more technical knowledge than their superior stay here and be humiliated? I'm only hampered by age, because it's hard... — read more
And when did you lose all hope that anything will ever improve here?

VSPP offered in Utah again. When will it ever end?

If you test positive for Covid you can get short term disability. That’s how we have been doing it at our office. Use one week of PTO then short term until you are “well enough” to return.
Either things have quieted down - or everyone is gone.......LOL
Judging by what is happening in the company, I would say that the goal of those at the top is to destroy this company. It's hard to believe, but everything they do results very unfavorably for this company. It is even harder to believe that they... — read more
It's an unmitigated dumpster fire. We have executive managers who take no accountability, lousy working conditions are resulting in tons of attrition, morale is at an all-time low... I'm not sure if there's a way for things to get any worse... — read more
The sale of LUMN, same type of scenario as the Verizon sale of FiOS to the joker of a company Frontier. Congress is protecting these types of transactions where eventually thousands loose their jobs. The executives in America are for #1, them. The... — read more
Are they keeping the CTL name in the 16 states unsold? Thanks.
It’s hard for people to realize but this company has been a steaming pile of sh-t ever since centurytel bought qwest. I specifically remember being in shitville when Nacchio ran us in the ground. I can’t believe any person who still works here can... — read more
I hope management completely smashes the CWA. They are completely worthless. It’s hard to imagine a more worthless organization. I have been giving dues to what end. F them.
Lumen is expected to changed their name to “Lemon”. After the most recent quarter, Lemon will be the more appropriate name going forward. That’s how we refer to it on Wall Street.
Treating your workres with poor labor relations, running a business that will churn or numbers at all costs doesn't fix the problems for the customer or is prudent use of the labor they are paying for. No or low investment growth so desperately... — read more
I find it hilarious, reading comments like “the company doesn’t care about us”, or “leadership is so d-mb”. Every time someone doesn’t get their way they get bu-t hurt. You get paid bi-weekly that’s all that is owed to you. Loyalty has never... — read more
Oh how it shows how much they care by selling us off one chunk at a time. Will this money be used to upgrade and maintain what’s left? Nope, it will evaporate into corporates pockets and there still will be no focus on the future. Many managers and... — read more
Have you ever worked in a company that had more incompetent leadership? I have not. And I worked in several companies before I came here. How can anyone believe that better days will come here, when we are led by such incompetent people? It would be... — read more
Or maybe the better question is how close are we to the rock bottom? This is terrible what is happening and I don't think there will be anything nice in the next period. I hope you are all looking for better opportunities and polishing your resumes... — read more
