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
That is, disappointed in those who run it. Bad moves one after another. Is it possible that almost no one here can even remember their last good move? That's awful. Sometimes it seems to me that they do not want to put this company back on track but... — read more
Several of our top recruiters have left Lumen in the last few months. Do they know something we don't know? Many of them were here for a long time. Layoff's coming? Consolidation? Lumen no longer a prime company to work for? I think we know the... — read more

Wonder if they are celebrating in Latin America
That is, which states does Lumen want to keep? In any case, the situation is hopeless because there is no future here and we should flee from here ASAP.
I don't intend to wait for them to show me the door. The situation here is getting worse and worse and looking for a new job is an absolute priority. However, I am a bit disappointed because in two months I received only one offer which was not... — read more
I can't afford to lose my job right now, and if the sale goes through I most likely will.
I have been looking around and there are jobs out there, but none seem to fit my needs. Pay isn’t the issue but having good health insurance is. I’ve been searching for over six months and just when I felt like giving up and putting it on hold, one... — read more
In south Florida local 199, Lumen is requiring service technicians 6-10s but informing us their going to reduce head count by 12 by end of July. Does this make any common sense at all? Who is running this outfit anymore!

Treating us like cr-p until we walk away on our own?
I left 3 years and 3 weeks ago with a RIF. It's was the worst 11 years of my life at Embarq/Centurylink. I was treated unfairly. But today I'm kicking a-s. I'm doing well. I took a year off. I had to. I was on the brink on dying from stress from... — read more
I was hoping for improvements, until I recently realized that ever since I started working here, I’ve been constantly hoping for better, but the reality is that the company is sinking at a rapid pace. Now I see that I have just wasted my time here... — read more

I hope I won't be here next month. I’ve been here too long and I don’t even know how I’ve managed to hold on so far. I guess I thought things would get better. Whoever I talk to, everyone is looking for a new job. It seems like no one is planning to... — read more

It seems like they don't intend to deal with the replacement of employees who have quit. I’ve been doing an enormous amount of work for months now since 2 colleagues have left. They have not been replaced for months, nor are there any indications... — read more
My techserve keeps telling me its inactive. Anyone layoff in the passed can attest to that?
Those at the top should ask themselves, it’s high time, when employees start talking that they would prefer this company to be bought. It’s a sign that we’ve reached the rock bottom. I have absolutely no hope that anything will get better here. — read more
After my colleagues leave, they think I will do 7 jobs instead of 5 which is how many I'm doing right now? Is this their plan, to bury those who survive with an even bigger amount of work??? I don't believe that they will succeed, because if I... — read more
