The CEO and it’s incompetent leadership team is what’s dragging this company down. Changing strategy like it’s underwear, keeping poor sales leaders around because they were Level 3 employees. It’s a perpetual magic show and they have run out of... — read more
Will there be more RIFs?
I finally gave notice. After so many years of being dedicated to this company, I didn’t want them to show me the door. I realized from everything that had happened in recent months that they wanted to get rid of me at the first opportunity, so I... — read more
Friday jan 21, after 38 years, I was let go. I was the last man standing out of a team that once had 22 people. I don't know what the he-l this company is doing. The shove customer service down our throats, but then they get rid of the people... — read more
If last Friday wasn't enough.... This Friday, Jan 21st, ANOTHER round of RIFs are planned... this time in the Sales Org.
Any word on Utah having additional layoffs?
I just got RIF'd this morning. My boss, in tears (genuinely), told me 20 minutes ago. Oh well, guess all that hard work & loyalty means f#u-k all.... me for being the fool!
Let’s all congratulate the CEO of CenturyLink for losing over 50% of the company’s market cap in the last three years. Lumen Technologies (NYSE:LUMN) shares fell 6.0% to $12.5 during Thursday's pre-market session. The company's market cap stands at... — read more
Peers from an unnamed source have recommended buying several devices (that plug into cigarette lighter ports) such as heaters, window defoggers and the like to drain batteries in trucks. Call fleet and have them send someone out. Call your... — read more
What are your thoughts?
Anyone know if they have approved or extended any time off for covid pay for 2022? They are always giving constant updates and info for forced vaccines but nothing on covid pay now that the 40 hours of 2021 EPTO expired.
Strong message coming from well connected colleagues... Watch for the layoffs in January; evidently there will be a HUGE amount RIF'd etc. No word on any VSPP package. I have not heard this rumor this strong before, either!
You're going to be the scapegoat for everyone's mistakes for the next 3 months. No matter who you are or how important you think you are, they're going to replace you as soon as it's convenient for them In a year no one who still works... — read more
get out people, get out. I left in September 17, best decision I made, (22 + years), no stress my health is back and am so happy. Got a job that pays more and appreciates people and acknowledge you. FYI, when updating your resume, make sure you put... — read more
It's time this company starts adjusting their pay scales by a COLA. With the great resignation going on, the employees need their pay adjusted. When ypu look at job postings,they list minimum and maximum, but employees are only paid barely above... — read more
My id--t boss says i cannot take my number when I retire. I know plenty of others who have taken there number with them when they left. Is there a form to fill out to get approval for the number, or is my boss correct?
And it’s back.
I have colleagues who do everything they can to make it harder for new, young employees to get started here and make fun of them for not knowing how to do work, not having any experience, etc. C'mon, people quickly forget what they were like at... — read more
I wonder if management knows that some states consider accrued time as unpaid wages? Or that some non-represented employees can't take PTO because they might get fired for taking time off? A good company would just pay out unused PTO, not this... — read more
Just got out CenturyLink bill in the mail. The envelope design has changed. The logo is now on the back of the envelope. It looked like junk mail and we almost threw it out. Clearly the CEO (or whoever made that decision) hasn't sorted their own... — read more
This is really good news. https://www.sc-g.gov/media/1pfaybfp/federal-contractor-order.pdf
I got my religious exemption approved today. Just need to take test once a week.The testing is free at my local shopping mall. God is great.
Most of the colleagues I started working with here have now been in other companies for a long time. There is a mass exodus going on. I keep wondering if the attrition will slow down but every week someone leaves. I guess there will be even more... — read more
Anyone get any word of a possible vspp offered in January 2022?
Quit as a member. Even in non right to work states you can get a percentage of your dues back every year CWA Lost the enhanced prem tech arbitration. Same job lower wages. Lost the vaccine mandates. Get it or you lose your job. — read more
That's right. I never particularly believed that grass was much greener in other companies, it wasn't ideal for me here, but it wasn't bad for me either... and then a new manager came along. Absolutely - people don’t leave bad companies but bad... — read more
I have been waiting for a long time for our leadership to make at least one move that will benefit the valuable employees, those who are still there. Problems just pile up, and nothing is getting solved. I would be happy if at least I didn’t have... — read more
How many of you working from home are working two jobs. I know a some in MN who work two jobs and Lumen has no clue. I guess that’s one way of getting Lumen back for their terrible leadership. In most cases, the second job pays better, while they... — read more
It's been happening for a long time, they seem to be encouraging us to quit. I don't think I'm imagining it? Are there others who are experiencing horrible situations through which it is clearly noticeable that they are trying to get rid of you... — read more
Several have put in their notices in msp. 4 engineers walked out last friday
Time to consider r/antiwork. This is a subreddit group for like minded people who are fed up with their employer and the way they are treated. Many are leaving jobs for places where they are respected. There are so many places offering great... — read more
The arbitrator ruled against CWA. Looks like net tech position will be a goner in the upcoming months and next year. I don’t think network technician will even be in the next contract for 2023. Enhanced Prem Tech tips out at $30
https://cdn.locals.com/documents/47656/47656_5qxwlur28cwxy2s.pdf I'm not a lawyer but this ruling is an absolute beat down of the Brandon Administration's OSHA vaccine mandate. Reading between the lines the judge says only congress could require a... — read more
Do you predict that there will be CenturyLink layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
I think the worst is yet to come in 2022 and lucky are those who have already left here, because everyone I know who has quit is now in much better companies. I'm not at all optimistic. I don’t see any sign that next year could finally be better for... — read more
Is this even legal?
