Why are the contractors being let go? What’s happening in June? Is Las Vegas next in line?
I hope everyone sees what is going on. In unionized areas LEVEL 3, is setting up for when contract negotiations are up. They want people to take severance package. Hiring contracting companies for piece work. So when negotiations are ready they will... read more

Why are there still so many high salary first level supervisors still here that have low number of employees reporting under them. There was some repositioning done with some of the supervisors.

It's good to see that people asking the right questions are getting at least some coverage in the media. Does anyone besides me remember CenturyLink giving millions of dollars in bonuses a few months ago? Now they are cutting more than 1,000 jobs!... read more
Why are there so many supervisors with only 9 to 12 employees under them? I thought it was suppose to be 30 employees per supervisor? So a 1st level supervisor who makes 80,000 or 90,000 or more to watch very few people.. so maybe this should be... read more

/ All about the money.
With pro forma annual revenues of $26 billion, as CenturyLink expects, per-employee revenues would rise from $437,500 in 2016 to about $509,800 annually. Cutting around 1,000 jobs would boost that figure to $520,000. — Iain Morris, International... read more

I agree as management side that All employees are treated poorly but cuts obliterate support of applications and fail to support much needed work. They can pay for vendor support at high cost but not for employees that did the work. It is merely to... read more
Has anyone heard anything about these states? Are layoffs coming? Or packages?
News articles are saying automation is one of the key reasons for job cuts. They are trying to push automation but tell us that it’s not to reduce headcount, wondering if we will be next!
What’s coming up next?
Does anyone have any information on what happened in Florida?
Does anyone know what is happening with the engineering dept ? Are they consolidating to one area? Heard some areas were let go.
Am I getting this right? Some posts here are indicating that there are voluntary layoffs at play here? Or am I getting this all wrong? If there is an option to volunteer for a layoff I'd take it in a second. I've been meaning to leave for a while... read more
