Suggestions for improvement

  • It's been too long for me to remember. I did like working there for the most part.

What I like about the company

When I started with Qwest it was US West. They had phenomenal health insurance with no premium. Once bought out by Qwest they premium was still low for great insurance. I liked that there was opportunity for advancement; I started as an Administrative Assistant and left as a Project Manager. I will forever be thankful for that. I also got a 10% raise to bring me up to where I should be; not many places do that. I liked that you worked with people from across the country and that you could work from home.

What I dislike about the company

When I was there they were going through major attrition via layoffs. This happened for years and finally it was my turn. They were located in an area of Minneapolis, that at the time, wasn't close to anything such as restaurants and they didn't have a cafeteria.
