Let’s get those dash cams in the technicians trucks this summer! None of them know how to drive, they spend more time picking their nose then watching the road.
Unless the idea behind is to motivate employees to leave the company, I really don’t know why so much micromanagement? They create enormous pressure here with their micromanagement. Nowhere else have I experienced managers having so little trust in... — read more

Any CST’s get offered a package recently? These are Customer Service Techs, sometimes referred to as BST’s dependent upon which of the 14 companies you work for (mainly business technicians doing CPE work for Data/VoIP)!!!
When I talk to colleagues, most are very seriously planning to leave. This means that those who stay will have a bigger workload. I really hope that this company has a plan how to keep people whose workloads are already unbearable?
Expect to see Lumen be forced to cut the dividend for the 2nd time in 4 years. It’s only going to get uglier in coming months. Lumen can’t pay out 10%+ and Wall Street Sales and Revenue are worse than ever under Story’s leadership while the... — read more
Another 52-Week low for worst company and leadership team in the United States.

They announced they are selling the Mineral Colorado building today.
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
