Raises its been a long time

Sell us off let us find new life with new management Ceo shoukd be in prison along with all telecom CEOs all of them only care about their pay

Review from Operations Dept

Well the company is not advertising and doing nothing

Proper sale percentage payment calculations

Leadership is out of touch with everything and everyone is too "pc".

Stop micromanaging and number mincing your employees that actually make the place run. Let the techs do their JOBS to help customers.. Stop forcing them to meet arbitrary numbers that mean nothing in the long run besides a few saved pennies while you lose dollars in customers.

Jobs under consumer ate constantly reduced making it impossible to deliver what the customer expects. People find themselves doing work of 3 jobs with no raise in over 6 years

Miscommunications all around, useless updates and patches, lack of training on new products

My suggestions will never be taken seriously by anyone in management

Lumen?? Not friendly on customers servixe

Do yiour trsearch !!!! Ask the aberage workef

Start caring for and supporting the customer in getting the service he is paying for

They just laid off half of the technician work force in the area. They cannot meet customer commitments, they cannot keep their word on anything.

The company needs to focus on plant maint

More training for all onboards

Contact and investment is severly lacking

Outsourced call centers with scripted dialoge and no technical abilities, which customers hate.

Put a focus back on doing it right THE FIRST TIME! And stop sending the work to bendors & out of country!

Review from Sales Dept

Lumen should value its employees more and invest in them, through training, benefits and better compensation. Raises should be given at least every 2 years, and employees should be consulted about their career goals and where they'd maybe like to advance through the company.

What do you like best about your company?

Inspiring vision and leadership team. Fantastic intranet and product portfolio.

Great growth potential.

I can work from home
