Where is our customer service?

CenturyLink Overall Satisfaction Rating Based on 630 ratings submitted in the last year. Received one star. Centurylink is considered to have extremely poor customer service.

Level 3 rightsizing

Jeff and company are just right sizing the company to benefit the stockholders. Good for business, not for employees. Already offshored IT and engineering to India.💸💸💸💸💸

Layup jobs

Interesting, after announcing layoffs, brand new jobs are offered you've never heard of before are posted. But you have to be an outgoing sro or retail store manager to get one. Looking at you Greenfields.

Flexible time off

Next will be cutting the project administrators they have left. FTO employees and managers have no measureable revenue value. Too much waste there. By end of year or sooner. Wow.
