I worked at Qwest full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great benefits, good forward-looking company, great supervisor

Cons

Because the company is so large, there tends to be a lot of red tape

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow directors to manage their own teams/budgets; stop micro-managing.

    Former Employee - Software Development Manager  in  Denver, CO (US)
    Former Employee - Software Development Manager in Denver, CO (US)

    I worked at Qwest full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It was a great place to learn the skills I needed to start a career somewhere more ethical and appreciative of their people.

    Cons

    Between the dishonest directors taking huge bribes for poor software purchases that they knew would never work in their environment to the outsourcing of all in state to jobs to India, Qwest screwed the American worked for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Poor Leadership leads to poor morale. People do not enjoy their jobs at all and they definitely don't trust their directors, especially a couple of "Senior Directors" located in Denver that take huge bribes and then implement brand new broken version 1.0 software packages.
