My takeaway from the North star presentation was there will be no raises except for a very few employees.
When the copper is sold off; Lumen stock will explode! How can someone think that is going to happen? I recall at one time USWest stock was at *$86 a share when copper was the only material in the market. Since then this company has passed the CEO... — read more
Call it for what it is; Lumen does not want to have employees on payroll. HireVue was activated last year which is preventing past experienced employees re-entry to the company at a time where the company needs more staff. The union contract was... — read more
My crew is terribly understaffed. People who were hired left in record time. Does anyone want to work here anymore? It seems that the reputation has hit the rock bottom.
To all management, 1st level, 2nd level and beyond. If you have never done the job, not one tech respects you. You can learn as much as you want but you will never gain respect. This just happens to come from the Spokane area. Most real... — read more
If Storey doesn’t get clawed back along with his team, the board will be called before Congress.
Do you think there may be small/medium/large CenturyLink layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Wonder what will be left when they are done selling: https://www.fiercetelecom.com/telecom/lumen-rumored-seek-buyer-assets-4-states
I frequently go to Yahoo LUMN stock to see the stock conversations. Be sure to pull down and select Newest Conversations. I consistently see investors say to hold on because LUMN stock its going to soar. Using Yahoo, I can click on the stock chart... — read more
This company will go Chapter 11 within the next few years and T-Mobile will pick over the carcass.
What can we expect next week? Will there be even more small cuts or will they drop another major round on us? Is there ANY chance that maybe we won't see any of that? It's Saturday morning and instead of relaxing and catching up on my shows, I can't... — read more
30+ sales people laid off this week
So the union was able to negotiate another paid holiday, MLK day (management already had it) for craft…if you have been paying attention the last 4 contracts, many of was wondering at what peril or expense was this going to come at??? One... — read more
All this mess in the company now, I think is primarily a consequence of the fact that the leadership does not have any vision or any well-designed plan for the future. They have completely lost their direction. Do you agree? It is also questionable... — read more
I would not recommend anyone to consider Lumen as an option and I feel sorry for some new hires. Some of them are talented and have skills, but somehow got lost on their way and ended up here. The majority of those of us who have been here for a... — read more
Oops .. I meant "transformation". Which could mean transforming for the worse. Transform from what works to something that -- well, we get richer doing. And here comes Kate, complete with her 'digital transformation' moniker and her twitter... — read more
Congratulation to the Lumen Executive Team for loading $15B in market cap since 2018. Shareholders should be demanding clawbacks on compensation after Lumen enter the $6 handle territory in the stock market.
I hope the new company is successful. Does anybody know how many employees have moved to Brightspeed?
Lumen Technologies (NYSE:LUMN) stock drifted down 4.8% on Thursday morning to hit a new 52-week low of $7.28. Shareholder’s expect claw back on all restricted stock options. Where is Mr. 4th Generation and the greasy HR dude.
Thanks Jeff and the 4th Generation leadership team for that short but fantastic race to zero. Shareholders can’t that you enough for your marketing prowess, operation excellence, and customer success.
Maybe it's just me. Maybe I think that the grass is greener elsewhere, and it's not. Is there anyone who is comfortable working at Lumen and is not in a hurry to make an exit?
If you come from Level 3, be preparing to get let go. All of these GM’s and above are toast with little to show for it because the stock will be $5 in a few weeks. The clowns are being kicked out of town and are known losers in the industry. — read more
The workload is unmanageable. They hire new contractors to do the same job as actual employees and PAY THEM MORE! I hope this is not true.
Hearing rumors that Range Telephone is buying Lumen Technologies/CenturyLink Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Anybody else hearing this rumor?
Storey was fired and watch all managers top down be shown the door while their options will be worth little of nothing. Karma always come back to roost and all the management that used to treat their people like animals are getting ready to... — read more
How many millions of dollars will Jeff get when he leaves next November?
If the management thinks that the employees here will do the work for 2 or even 3 people and that it can go on like that, then the management is very wrong. I have more and more obligations, but I don't care at all because I think I will soon find... — read more
Lumen is highly corrupt and screwed up. End of story.
1 day left to show interest. Is this new net tech fiber splicing position a good move from broadband/network tech? What do you think?
An acquaintance asked me how I would describe the culture at Lumen. I think there is no more vivid description than that even those who were comfortable working in this place are starting to leave? Recently, a colleague who was the manager's... — read more
When I read the ratified contract breakdown; the union said members would receive $1000 "within 28 days" of ratification. First it sounded like a scoundrel who behind on his bills, "sure I'll pay you, not now but within 28 days". But being told by... — read more
I thought attrition would slow down a bit, but it still doesn't seem to be happening. I worked with great people, almost all of whom have now gone to competitors. Does the management understand the damage that is being done to this company? Do... — read more
Are Enhanced Prem Techs a union job as it seems the company just made the position up? If layoffs do come will EPTs go first? My thought is that once they hire too many EPTs, like they did with the BBTs for the prism build up, they could call... — read more
