They did get some good folks but also some of those who caused the mess we’re in right now.

Brightspeed upper management seem to be very knowledgable about fiber and current technologies. Very personable and have a Plan for the new Company. They were already running fiber on the second day of Brightspeed. We were doomed if this change didnt happen, so I am thankfull that a Company like Appollo had a vision and pulled some great talent out of retirement to build it.

I was one of the local guys who went with BRIGHTSPEED. The difference in CEO mentality & attitude towards employees couldn’t be more noticeable. JS had a “slave owner mentality”, but being the extreme leftist that he is, that’s expected.
JS is the “Brandon” of the communications industry.

Bright speed cherry picked all the good ones.
Remaining good Lumen people are leaving.
I'm leaving in 10 months 😆

I wish the Brightspeed employees the best. We lost a lot of great people with expansive knowledge. Many people ‘down play’ how valuable the local division has been over the years. Had ‘local’ people had input where to spend money on a local level like we did in the old United Telephone (Mid Atlantic) days the company would have been very competitive in the 20 states that were sold off. In the ‘old days,’ the local engineers had local knowledge of upcoming subdivisions, business parks and could plan accordingly. In the most recent years, the local division has not been given money or ability to make local decisions. That is so sad for the area where these employees live because the hands have been tied on providing fiber to the houses and small businesses. Ethernet is too expensive for some of these small business customers. Competition came in and took a lot of customers. Business Sales was no longer in front of the customer. A lot of small, revenue producing, businesses left to the competition. They never knew who their account manager was because it changed so often. I am saddened to see this split. I wish the best for all my Brightspeed friends that conveyed. I hope they will be successful and do great things for the customers in these 20 states!
