Thread regarding Lumen Technologies layoffs

Culture at Lumen

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 favorite left. What else is there to say...

More Chiefs than workers. They keep getting rid of the workers so how can the work get done?

Money keeps getting dumped into Enterprise while starving Mass Markets, both on sales and network yet the Level 3 chuckleheads running Enterprise still can't get any traction.The profitable revenue is still coming from legacy services.

Hah hah. Level 3 was no different than CenturyTel/CenturyLink, serial acquisitions to paper over the lack of organic growth. The person in love with Level 3 must have had zero interactions with the acquired companies. Level 3 was brutal in pillaging and shutting down those operations. They had no clue how to grow anything, only cut costs to the bone and beyond. Lather, rinse, repeat.

“Level 3 was a great company before Centurylink brought over their Executives, Management and weak ideas. Unrealistic KPIs and no growth as the ones on top were afraid of giving up their chair. Centuryilnk, pretty much ruined the Culture at Level 3. Sad, as that place was a great place to work and the people were top notch professionals. Level 3 was like a family and then Centurylink ruined that culture.”

Uhhhh, the Level 3 merger brought 35B in debt with them??? I’m pretty sure it was 1 year after the merger was announced that Glen got forced out (before his scheduled handover in year 3) and Level 3 CEO was put in place and rather quickly turned over the CTL executive team to his buddies thus, why we have an Absorbent amount of “executive” titles we never had before?? Keep on believing the mis-information you are spewing and please stay home on voting day ;))))

Level 3 was a great company prior to the TW telecom acquisition. Then after Level 3 was acquired by CenturyLink it changed again. TW lied about their network and Level 3 gained nothing from that purchase. In my opinion the biggest loss was acquiring TW upper mgt. CenturyLink bought Level 3 because they were an old copper telephone company with little future and declining revenue. Since the purchase of Level 3 CenturyLink has tried to make Level 3 more like CenturyLink and in the process has dragged them down. Stop investing in residential services (Quantum Fiber) where the competition is massive and the profit is minimal. Stick with the big customers that Level 3 brought with them. That's where your revenue comes from. Lumen is nothing more than a rebranded CenturyLink.

Whatever the name is level 3 centurylink lumen the boys at the top that make these decisions that ruin their employees lives ie js. Are still there. In the meantime the workin man is disregarded. Plus if you are in sales take a new job. They will ki-l you on a year boot u out. Of course unless you are favored the right shade etc etc. no one that is hired as new stays more than one year or they get kicked out shameless so ty to those workin men fight them to the end and do not trust

Way more money? I guess if you want to make straight cash doing piecework. Is a couple hundred bucks a month worth not having medical/dental/vision, 401k, pension, paid vacation, company truck, company tools, company gas card, company clothes, short and long term disability and the guarantee youre going to get paid every day not just the days you get work?

Good question. Fiber is booming all around and CenturyLink is part of that expansion. But CTL uses contractors. So, if you leave and go to that contracted company; you can make way more money. You know the inner workings and systems of CTL. And you can "UP" your negotiated pay. I guess the culture would be "Stop in for the experience! Leave for the Pay!"
