Good employees, bad management
Data Center Engineer (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 6, 2016
I've been working for Centurylink for over 20 months now, and while the employees are good people, and the starting pay is fair, the management at the current location I am at now is terrible.
I've learned that if you are to be valued at this company, that if you make any mistake, instead of training you to correct the problem, you're blamed and written up for it with no sitdown to help you correct the problem.
Management will double and triple stack items on to you at the same time period with no consideration that you can't be in two places at once, and then when something is missed, you'll be written up for it when the customer complains you missed the time window and be used as a scapegoat to be blamed for later.
While the employees are decent and you have a good support network, management will do whatever it takes to get the work done with little time to manage what needs to be done with an unrealistic timeline, and then blame you for the delays.
good starting base rate of pay, fair benefits
poor management with no morals
