Thread regarding Lumen Technologies layoffs

What does all this look like to new hires?

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 long time want to leave. So I wonder how this company looks to newbies.

If theyre newly hired prem techs theyve been sold the lie that theyll be working on the cutting edge of new technology. Leading the company into the future and they are on the ground floor of the 4th industrial revolution. They think its a high tech job requiring vast knowledge and skill sets. In reality theyre just the next generation of pole jockeys without the skill set. Installing fiber that barely requires an IQ of 50 to complete an order. Plug this end in here and plug that end in there. Wait for the lights to turn green and off to the next one.

Hey, if it’s a temporary gig, where you can learn what a bu-t set and a 66 block is? Don’t be fooled with the technologically thinking of the rich! Phones are still used!

Management forced all the ones with experience out the door. It was a quick fix to maintain their jobs and drop the real performers that drove that company's success utilizing KPI garbage! They are paying the price now. Karma! Hope that stings! It was just a matter of time.

There is NO real management or any protocols nor any leaders with real experience. It is a bunch of fakers with no strategy, roadmap or plan. Everything here at Lumen is a big ad-hoc pile of mess.

It probably looks like an easy gig until they actually have to do some real work. You know, something beyond the SNI. FFS this company must think people are salivating to work under the epic mismanagement around here
